When I have adapters configured in a Team as Virtual Machine Load Balancing, I recieve tons of warnings in the application log. Event ID 28, Source VMSMP, Port ***** was prevented from using MAC address ***** because it is pinned to port *****. I am running the latest drivers from the intel site.
I was in touch with one of our virtualization experts, but he wasn't able to give me any ideas based on the information here. Please let us know a bit more about your setup. Here are some questions that will help us figure out what is happening.
Which version of Hyper-V or WIndows Server are you running?
What are the Ethernet devices that are in your system and in your team?
What are the driver versions of the Ethernet devices?
Your post indicates that you are using the Intel Virtual Machine Load Balancing team type. If that is not correct, let me know. Also, what is the driver version being used by the team?
Have you changed any of the default configurations on any of the Ethernet devices or teams? If yes, what configuration changes did you make?
Please explain your Hyper-V switch configuration.
