Release of 10GB Ethernet drivers for Windows Server 2016

Hello,

now that Windows Server 2016 is in general availability, when can we expect to have a stable driver release for Windows Server 2016? The TP5 beta drivers are not very stable.

thanks!

Hi

I also need these ASAP, will these drivers also contain the teaming software that's been missing, I need to update a clustered server that has two X520 adapters in a NIC team?

Hi Magenois,

 

 

Good day. Have you tried using the driver version 21.1 already?

Hello

Yes I tried them. Somehow they dont want to install for my X552. The installer says that there was not Intel adapter detected. So I am still running the drivers provided with win2016 out of the box.

Thanks wb that works getting the Windows Server 2016 driver installed however it still doesn't give back the Teaming option! When is teaming coming back? This is important as these NICs are set up as failover on the current Windows 2012 R2 servers and this functionality is still required when we upgrade them to 2016

Thanks wb

I can confirm these Intel drivers work now and are teamed using the Microsoft Teaming software as per the quoted article.

I am happy for you to mark this as answered although I am not the OP

Thanks for your help
