Upgrading Intel® Ethernet Host Drivers and PROSet Under Windows Hyper-V*

If you have Intel® Ethernet adapters teamed and bound to Microsoft* Hyper-V's Virtual Network Switch Protocol, under Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2*, you may get the error message below, while performing an update of your Intel Ethernet drivers and PROSet.

Error message: Intel PROSet is configured with a team or VLAN that is bound to a virtual NIC. Intel® PROSet cannot be uninstalled with this configuration. Please remove the virtual NIC and then attempt the uninstall or upgrade again.



Solution:

  1. Temporarily change the Windows* Hyper-V virtual switch setting to 'Internal Only'.
  2. Run the Intel® Ethernet driver update utility.
  3. Change the Windows Hyper-V virtual switch setting back to the original Intel teamed interface.

Operating System:

Windows Server 2008 *, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard*, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise*, Windows Server 2008 R2 for Datacenter*, Windows Web Server 2008 R2*, Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation*, Windows Server 2008 R2 for Itanium-based Systems*
