Attention Windows 10 users: There is no need for any driver modification in Windows 10. The functionality is now native within the OS. Just do the following commands (you may need to launch the powershell cmd as Administrator):

import-module NetLbfo
New-NetLbfoTeam -Name Team1 -TeamMembers NIC1,NIC2

If you want LACP teaming mode then use this:

New-NetLbfoTeam -Name Team1 -TeamMembers NIC1,NIC2 -TeamingMode LACP

You can also set the teaming mode after the fact with:

Set-NetLbfoTeam -Name Team1 –TeamingMode LACP

You can get more information by using the Get-Help command:

Get-Help NetLbfo -Full

Or the same command on any of the functions:

Get-Help New-NetLbfoTeam -Full

So I’ve seen a lot of threads about the missing tabs on the popular NC364T and Intel PRO/1000 PT. Through most of my searching I’ve found nothing but complicated solutions that seem hit or miss in their success. So I figured I’d share the simplest solution most often overlooked. Use different drivers.

With the new Intel drivers there are supposed to be a series of tabs giving you access to the advanced features of the cards. There are two simple ways to gain access to these features. One would be to install the HP Network Configuration Utility and configure your teaming there. This works fine however it adds a layer of unnecessary software. The second is to use a different set of drivers.

Your card will probably show up in the Device Manager looking something like this. Click the Update Driver… button.

The Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Quad Port LP Server Adapter is probably the driver that was selected. Scroll down to the Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter (Intel) and select, click Next. There are two of the same name in my Network Adapter list. The 2nd one listed is a newer version. You’ll be picking the (Intel) non-Quad port driver.

If you don’t have the Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter in your driver list you can download the HP NC364T drivers. http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/psi/swdHome/?lang=en&cc=us&sp4ts.oid=3367980

Select your OS and then select the HP NC-Series Intel E1E Driver. The 2008R2 driver will work for Windows 7 and the 2012 driver will work for Windows 8.
