    Why has INTEL discontinued Advanced Network Services for Server NICs on Windows2008 R2?

    cmorrow

      I have a Dell PowerEdge 2850 which has the MT Dual Port Server Adapter. I recently installed W2K8r2 and just found out that I am unable to use Advanced Network Services. Specifically, 802.1q and 802.3ad. Is there an official response from INTEL explaining why this functionality has been discontinued and why the user is forced to use Microsoft driver?

       

      I am aware of this topic and I don't find it helpful. http://www.intel.com/support/network/sb/CS-030614.htm
