    Hi thanks for reading a bit of both this one Hyper-v and Server. I am setting up a lab with Server 2012 R2. I have several physical network cards that I have teamed called “HostSwitchTeam” from those I have made several Virtual Network Adaptors such as:

    New-VMSwitch “MgmtSwitch” -MinimumBandwidthMode weight -NetAdaptername “HostSwitchTeam” -AllowManagement $false
    Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name “Vswitch” -SwitchName “MgmtSwitch”[/CODE]

    Ect….when I install Hyper-V and it comes to adding a virtual switch during installation it only shows the individual physical network cards and the [B]HostSwitchTeam[/B] for selection. When installed it shows the Microsoft Network Multiplexor Driver as the only option. Is this correct or how does one use a VMNetworkAdapter so the Vswitch can be applied to Hyper-v.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
