Hyper-V* Child Partition Cannot Communicate Through RLB Team

Symptom(s):
A Hyper-V* child virtual machine (VM) is unable to communicate with an Intel® advanced networking services team configured for receive load balancing (RLB). RLB is enabled by default on an adapter load balancing (ALB) team.

Solution:

You can resolve this issue either by:

  • Using a Virtual Machine Load Balancing Team (VMLB)
  • Using either static link aggregation (SLA) or IEEE 803.ad dynamic link aggregation teams.
  • Disabling Receive Load Balancing in an ALB team's advanced settings
Note

A link aggegation team requires support from your switch. One of the following types of support should be configured on your switch before creating the adapter team:

  • Cisco switches with channeling mode set to "ON" (SLA team)
  • Intel switches capable of link aggregation (SLA team)
  • IEEE 802.3ad static link aggregation (SLA team)
  • IEEE 802.3ad dynamic link aggregation using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)
Note Intel® Network Connections software version 14.0 and later versions will not allow Receive Load Balancing (RLB) to be configured for teams with Hyper-V virtual NICs.
