VLAN tab is missing in network adapter properties binded into Hyper-V VNM



I have big trouble / headache problem and it is same with previous three version of network adapter driver with ANS (also with latest from 01/27/2010).

Two servers are in 2008 R2 failover cluster. Network adapters are 2 x 82576 gigabit dual port. There is established team between two ports. Then, on teamed adapter are made some VLAN's. When virtual adapter with one created VLAN is binded into Hyper-V virtual network manager, after that there is no more VLAN tab in configuration of Team adapter.

So question was how to add more or remove existing VLAN's ? Why VLAN tab is dissapearing ?

OK, first I have to unbind or virtual (VLAN) adapters from Hyper-V so I can get back VLAN tab... but that is.... I don't have words to describe hat ...

OK, I've found that I can use prosetcl.exe.

But something that should be so simple is NOT ! Complet cluster went down and network connectivity was broken in moment when using prosetcl.exe to add some vlan's.

I think that adding VLAN's should not break network or cluster, or am I wrong ?

For Hyper-V you should create the VLANs in the virtual interface instead of on the physical port. See FAQ: VLANs and VMDq on Intel® Ethernet Adapters in Hyper-V and also this thread: /message/93589# 93589 93589
