Hi, we have an Intel Modular Server. We would like to use this for a Hyper-V 2008 R2 failover cluster. Per blade, we have four network ports. Two ports we would like to use for the virtual machines. As teaming modes for load balancing we can only use ALB or VMLB (Switch does not support LAG-Groups for the internal ports).

 

 

Now the question is, has someone experience with Virtual Machine Load Balancing and works it correct? VMLB sounds ideal according to description, but here in the forum it was reported of problems associated with Hyper-V.

Yes, this has been fixed with our later drivers. The previous blog I believe was trying to use another vendors driver with our teaming capability, which is not something we test.
