    irst make sure to use the options to install PROSet and ANS when doing the command line install. Even though there is no GUI, the functions will be available via WMI and scripts. See the User Guide or http://support.intel.com/support/network/sb/cs-016040.htm for help on software installation.

     

    Beginning with version 13.3 of Intel® Network Connections software, visual basic scripts are copied to the \Program Files\Intel\NCS2\Scripts directory when Intel® PROSet for Windows* Device Manager is installed.


    If Advanced Networking Service (ANS) is not installed, only adapter scripts are copied to the directory. If ANS is installed then team and VLAN scripts are copied to the Scripts directory.

     

    Descriptions of all the scripts are included in dmscript.txt, which is also in the Scripts directory. A couple of examples for creating a team are below.

     

    Use this script to enumerate your adapters. You will need the numbers to create the team.

    Adapter_Enumerate.vbs target username password] [help]

     

    Example:

    C:\Program Files\Intel\NCS2\Scripts>cscript Adapter_Enumerate.vbs
    Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.6
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1996-2001. All rights reserved.
    Installed adapters:
    1) TEAM : Team #0 - Intel(R) Gigabit ET Dual Port Server Adapter #2
    2) TEAM : Team #0 - Intel(R) Gigabit ET Dual Port Server Adapter
    3) Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter
    4) Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection

     

     

    Use this script for team creation:

    Team_CreateTeam.vbs <AdapterList TeamMode TeamName> [target username password] [help]

     

    Example:

    C:\Program Files\Intel\NCS2\Scripts>cscript Team_CreateTeam.vbs 1,2,3 SLA TeamJoeThePlumber
    Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.6
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1996-2001. All rights reserved.

    Specified ports:
    1) Intel(R) Gigabit ET Dual Port Server Adapter #2
    2) Intel(R) Gigabit ET Dual Port Server Adapter
    3) Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter

    Attempting to create SLA team with the adapters above...
