I am trying to understand, in Server 2012r2, what the option "GuestVM>Settings>Network Adapter>Advanced Features> "Enable this network adapter to be part of a team in the guest operating system" does.
In your video it seemed to be stated that this option needed to be set to allow the guest vm traffic to use all the adapters in the Host machine's NIC team. I thought this function was to enable the VM to create multiple virtual network adapters connected to (usually) different virtual switches (each of which is associated with different physical NIC teams going to different physical network switches), thus to provide both redundancy and fault tolerance within the VM.
So for example, say I have 4 1 Gb/s NICs teamed, using LACP. The team is associated with a single hyper-v virtual switch and the VM guests connect to that switch. I would think that the actual teaming of the physical adpaters would be invisible to the VMs and therefore they would physically have access to the combined bandwidth (4 Gb/s) of the teamed NICs (via each of their single 10Gb/s virtual nic). However, the video seemed to imply that unless the above option was ticked, their traffic would only flow through 1 physical NIC (and hence only have 1Gb/s available).
Can you tell me which is correct and in the above example, whether setting the "Enable this network adapter..." would actually make any difference?
