    Intel I350 NIC Teaming Issue

    GerardButcher

      Afternoon,

       

      When I team the Four Ports on an Intel I350 Adapter together in Static or Dynamic Mode the Ports on the Network Card drop connection within 1 minute periods and then gets connection again.

       

      I have removed the team and the ports stay on fine, but when teamed together they start losing connection and Event Errors:

       

      E1rexpress

      iANSMiniport

       

      Basically using the 4 ports for LACP for our Backup Services for this server, but if the NIC Connects are flaky then the Backup Job fails!

       

      I've tried googling this but keep hitting the same brick wall.

       

      The server is Windows 2003 R2 x32 and the Intel Drivers:  12.7.28.0

       

      Teaming Setup as:  IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic

       

       

      Any help on this would be great.

       

      Many Thanks
