Can anyone please explain why Intel no longer supports ANS Teaming functionality in Windows 10. The latest update wreaked havoc on my system. I've spent a good money on hardware infrastructure to support an ANS Team and its been working flawless until the other day. Can anyone please explain why this happened and what can i do about it.
I am sorry to hear what happened. But currently the ANS and VLAN is not supported on Windows 10* but will be supported in a future release.
Please refer to the downloadcenter important note: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25016/Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-10 Download Network Adapter Driver for Windows® 10
"Important Note: Creating Intel® ANS teams and VLANs on Microsoft Windows® 10 is currently not supported. As a result, when created, teams and VLANs do not pass traffic. We expect that ANS will be supported on Microsoft Windows 10 client in a future release"
There is an OS limitation that we are working with Microsoft to fix. Once the OS supports ANS teaming correctly, it will be re-enabled in our driver release packages.
Keep in mind that ANS will only load on devices that are Windows 10 WHQL certified. These include LAN On Motherboard or add-in cards based on the following silicon:
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller I211-AT* (cannot initiate a team)
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller I210-AT
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller I210-IT
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller I350-AM2
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller I350-AM4
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller X540-AT2 or -BT2
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller X550-AT2 or -BT2
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller X710-AM2 or BM2
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller XL710-AM1 or BM1
Intel(r) Ethernet Controller XL710-AM2 or BM2
Intel(r) 82599ES 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Intel® 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet PHY
Intel(r) Ethernet Connection I217-LM and -V*
Intel(r) Ethernet Connection I218-LM and -V*
Intel(r) Ethernet Connection I219-LM and -V*
Intel(r) Ethernet Connection X557-AT2
* I need to verify if you can initiate a team from the I211 or the I217-V/I218-V/I219-V (I'll update this post once I confirm).
