Windows 2012 R2 HP Proliant 110 Gen9 multiple vlans on one NIC?

Our company is slowly converting over from a single abused vlan 1 all on Cisco manageable switches. (3850 stacked core and 2960x access switches).  We are moving to several vlans: some private some accessible to WAN). We are also building a server per site that is used to monitor switches via sylogs and snmp as well as being a tool for remote maintenance. The title states the type of server. I have had poor luck trying to get a straight answer out of HPE. Can the two 330i NIC adapters be configured so one physical NIC handles two VLANS. So far everything points me to Teaming. I can team the two NICS, but both have to be plugged in. We are trying to reduce the total amount of cable drops to this server. Presently we have 1 WAN access port, 1 private port, 1 iLO and one Sniffer. Getting the one WAN access port to operate as a trunk is the overall intention.

That nic supports teaming, and you can configure network teaming with active and standby. So technically, one network interface can be left unplugged.

and clearly you are aware of the dangers, if the active nic, should become unavailable or unplugged.

Okay I did this and I have a connection. However short of the VLAN ID as 0 on the two NICS I am not able to assign two static address (under separate subnets) to either NIC (active or standby). I have the Cisco 2960X switch port configured as:

sw mode trunk
sw trunk native vlan 290
sw trunk allowed add vlan 291

If I can't correlate the appropriate subnet/address to either NIC then the whole thing is useless. Please pass on some more magic kind sir.

I would have to install HP Teaming software, and check and confirm this, it worked the last time we did it, by creating a teamed VLAN nic per VLAN.

Ok! I may try that. I have been using the Windows 2012 R2 providing teaming and it is not that robust.

Did you mean SPP. If so it is not there. I am presently working with someone on a related program and he stated that feature has been removed from the SPP.

Maybe that's because they are now expecting you to use teaming software in the OS.
