I you are not the typical RTFM installer, you probably install your Hyper-V server by throwing in a HP SmartStart DVD and do the guided install that prepares your System Configuration, OS installation and HP ProLiant Support Pack. Well if you are that kind of person: be careful!
If not treated well, you would end up with problems stemming from a wrong installation order. If you want HP ProLiant NIC Teaming to work properly, you always have to enable Hyper-V with latest updates and hotfixes before you install the HP ProLiant Teaming Software. If you don’t, the network team may stop passing traffic.
I read a tweet from Virtualization MVP Kurt Roggen. In his blog Kurt mentioned that HP had published an update on the proper use of HP NIC Teaming.
The HOWTO document explains what happens if you create or dissolve a team if a Hyper-V virtual network was already configured and more importantly how to get rid of this.
The other topic discussed is the use of VLANs with Hyper-V. Last year I wrote a couple of blogs on native Hyper-V VLANs and the new promiscuous mode introduced in the NCU 10.10.xx version. I suggest you use the newer 10.20.x.x versions for reasons I mentioned in one of my previous blog.
