NIC Teaming Breaking Down On Guest

I have a machine with 4 1Gbps NICs
They all appear to work ok but when I take 2 of them with matching specs and create a virtual NIC it leaves me with no IPV4 or IPV6.
Something basic that I'm missing

I can not really following your topic....
You mean you want to team two of the NICs and make it available to HyperV guests?

From the general understanding....
The teaming of NICs on the physical host is a question of the drivers and configuration on the physical machine. The teamed NIC show up as one physical device in the host.

If you configure HyperV, you need to virtualize the physical NIC what is done by the HyperV NIC configuration. As far as you do this, the physical NIC will be converted into a NIC-Switch, which doesn't have any IP configuration anymore. On top of this NIC Switch, a virtual NIC is created which you can make visible to the guest VMs as well as for the physical machine.  The IP configuration has to be set on the virtual NIC.

I'm able to create the virtual NIC. Then I go to hyper-v Virtual Switch Manager and assign it to the VMS but then the NIC on the VMS show no IPV anything. Let me try it on the host and see what happends

Switch Independent and Dynamic?

p.s. I had this working on my old host forever but I just rebuilt and now its not going right

Hi A_AmericanElectric,

When you create a nic teaming then you see two NIC and third one is hyper v team nic. Whatever properties you want to check for IP or other details after nic teaming you can check in that nic

Doing that now but I have 2 NICs to make a virtual called host and it shows IPV4 on the host.
I have another 2 NICs to make a virtual called guest. It also shows IPV4 only bu I suspect that when I assign it to Hyper-v it will fail
A_AmericanELectricAuthor Commented:
Nope! Shows "No internet access" on the guest. I tried assigning it its sstatic address and its able to ping the other guest and the host but not the router
BembiCEOCommented:
You have
NIC1 - NIC2 - NIC3 - NIC4
You create a team from NIC1 + NIC2
Dependent from the driver and architecture...
You see now
a.) NIC1 - NIC2 - NIC3 - NIC4 - NICTeam ...or
b.) NIC3 - NIC4 - NICTeam

Now you build in the HyperV configuration a virtual NIC which is bound to NICTeam and is visibly to the host.
The result is one of the two
a.) NIC1 - NIC2 - NIC3 - NIC4 - NICTeam (Switch) - NICVirtual (IP configuration)
b.) NIC3 - NIC4 - NICTeam - NICVirtual (IP configuration)

Means, you can use NIC3, IC4 and the NICVirtual on the physical machine.
On the HyperV guests, only NICVirtual as visible.

If you do not make NICVirtual visible on the host, you can use the remaining NIC3 + NIC4 for the host.

Create an External vSwitch bound to NIC 0.
Create an External vSwitch bound to NIC 1.

VM Settings --> vNIC --> Add the above 2 vNICs

In VM --> Teaming --> New Team --> Choose two vNICs --> Leave Dynamic --> APPLY/OK.

You should have a team so long as the guest and host OS is 2012 R2.
