    VLMB ANS Team on Hyper-V 2012 R2 with VMQ / VMDq

    BMOB

      Hi,

       

      we just bought some new Dell Poweredge R730 with Intel Ethernet 10G 4P X540/I350 Network Adapter for using them Hyper-V 2012 R2.

       

      According to this document it's possible to create a VLMB Team with Intel ANS Teaming and enable VMDq, so Hyper-V will make use of VMQ.

       

      I installed the latest version of Intel PROSet, created a VMLB Team with Intel ANS and enabled virtual machine Queues:

      But even after a reboot VMQ is not availible:

       

      PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-NetAdapterVMQ

      Name                           InterfaceDescription              Enabled BaseVmqProcessor MaxProcessors NumberOfReceive
                                                                                                              Queues

      I've created a virtual Switch and bound it to the ANS Team NIC..

      Anyone can point me to what I'm missing?
