These instructions will be similar (if not identical) for core versions of server 2012 and 2008R2, but don’t quote me:

  1. Download (http://downloadcenter.intel.com) and install (http://www.intel.com/support/network/sb/cs-016040.htm) the latest drivers for your particular NIC from Intel.
  2. On each host, identify the indices of the adapters you want to include in the team (c:\progra~1\intel\dmix\cl\prosetcl.exe Adapter_Enumerate) – assuming 2 and 3 for further steps.
  3. Create the team (c:\progra~1\intel\dmix\cl\prosetcl.exe Team_Create 2,3 Team1 802.3AD (there are other choices for the type of team – review c:\progra~1\intel\dmix\cl\prosetcl.txt for documentation).
  4. Use sconfig to assign IP configs

Done and done!  Obviously, you need to have your switch configured appropriately for your type of team – LACP for 802.3AD…
