I have a couple of questions regarding the use of an Intel X540-T2 10G Ethernet card as the main network card in a Windows Server 2016 cluster:
IPv6 tunnel address resource 'IP Address 2002:xxxx:xxxx:x:x:xxxx:aa.bb.cc.dd' failed to come online. Cluster network 'Cluster Network 1' associated with dependent IP address (IPv4) resource 'IP address aa.bb.cc.dd' does not support ISATAP tunnelling. Please ensure that the cluster network supports ISATAP tunnelling.This error was not showing for the cluster network itself, but has only appeared when I've configured the File Server Role. The error was also not showing for the same role that was running on an old pair of servers on Windows Server 2012 and using Broadcom NICs. I've searched online and there's not much out there about resolving this issue and I was wondering whether anyone has seen this issue before and has steps to resolve it?
Thank you for the post. We do not have Windows 2016 driver support for X540-T2, you may refer to this website for the list of supported Intel NIC in Windows 2016.
Are there plans to provide drivers for the X540-T2, or are we relying on the Windows Server 2016 in-box drivers from now on?
There are drivers for Windows 10 for this card, so I would hope that Windows Server 2016 drivers will be made available!
Further checking, you can use this Windows 2016 driver for X540 series at
Hope this helps.
