HP Proliant teamed NIC not supported by WHS 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a HP G7 Proliant M110 with two NICs.  I installed WHS 2011. a moajor goat rope.  It smokes now.

    I later decided to enable teamed NICs with the HP teamed NICs utility.  That apparently caused me to lose remote access and I began getting a pesty message that my server was not connected to the Internet.  Unfortunately, I did not put the two together. 

    After a MONTH plus of searching the forums, I FINALLY found a link that explained that WHS 2011's sister, Small Business Essentials 2011 does not support virtual NICs, i.e., WHS 2011 probably does not either.  Given that, I dissolved my virtual, teamed NIC.  I immediately regained remote access and the nasty grams stopped. 

    What a pain-in-the-butt.  NO THANK YOU, Miscrosoft again for your incomplete documentation.
