Any failover increases network latency until ARPs are resent. If large packets make up the majority of traffic and more latency can be tolerated, Jumbo frames can reduce CPU utilization and improve wire efficiency. Teams display as Virtual Adapters in Windows. Use of the Software by the Government constitutes acknowledgment of Intel’s proprietary rights therein. Changing this setting can cause a momentary loss of connectivity. When a primary is removed from a team, its MAC address stays with the team until the server is rebooted. The browser version you are using is not recommended for this site.

For example, in the address 0YA, Y cannot be an odd number. Designed to guarantee server availability to the network.

Turn off STP on the incoming ports of the switches directly connected to the adapters in the team, or configure ports for PortFast. The issue can also occur in a Forced Slave to Forced Slave mode. You may transfer the Software only if the recipient agrees to be fully bound by these terms and if you retain no copies of the Software.

The Software is copyrighted and protected by the laws of the United States and other countries and international treaty provisions. Can be configured separately for IPv4 and IPv6. Did you find this information useful? Virtual Adapters require memory resources beyond the physical adapters. The Software may include portions offered on terms in addition to those set out here, as set out in a license accompanying those portions.


You may reproduce and distribute the Software only as an integral part of or incorporated in your product, as a standalone Software maintenance update for existing end users of your products, excluding any other standalone products, or as a component of a larger Software distribution, including but not limited to the distribution of an installation image or a Guest Virtual Machine image, subject to these conditions: Set the activation delay on the advanced tab of team properties.

This results in poor system performance.

Teaming with Intel® Advanced Network Services

Notes Not all adapters support all RSS queue settings. Some advanced features, including hardware offloading, are automatically disabled jdis non-Intel adapters are team members to assure a common feature set.

The primary adapter is the adapter that carries the most traffic. Please submit your comments, questions, or suggestions here.

With Offloading disabled, the operating system verifies the IP checksum. Using Jumbo frames at 10 or Mbps can result in poor performance or loss of link.

Make sure no other systems on the network use this address. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not copy, install, or use the Software. The terms of the software license agreement included with any software you download will control your use of the software. The DOS drivers are provided solely for the purpose of loading inyel operating systems—for example, during RIS or unattended installations.


Increasing this value can enhance the receive performance, but also consumes system memory. Increasing the number of Transmit Descriptors can enhance transmit performance. Can be used with any switch. Active aggregators in software determine team membership between the switch and the ANS software or between switches.

By copying, installing, or otherwise using the Software, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. When this feature is enabled, the network adapter dynamically adapts to network traffic conditions.

Sets the number of buffers used by the driver when copying data to the protocol memory. Deleting virtual teams directly in Windows Device Manager can cause severe consequences.

The browser version you are using is not recommended for this site. Performance options – Adaptive inter-frame spacing Compensates for excessive Ethernet packet collisions by controlling back-to-back timing. Enables or disables Jumbo frame capability.

With RLB, all traffic other than IP traffic, is passed on the primary adapter, regardless of its speed.
