Network Teaming config lost after upgrading NIC driver

Hi,

I don't know if a thread has already been opened for this in the past, but we have seen some issues with upgrading NIC driver and NCU on BL460c's (G1) with NC77xxx NICs. The NIC driver versions that have given us these issues are the ones in PSP8.10 and 8.11A.

After upgrading the driver to a newer version (we have had it with several versions actually), the teaming becomes unresponsive and the only solution is to dissolve the team, delete NCU, uninstall all NICs (including the team) from device manager, rescan hardware and let the NICs install, reinstall NCU, reboot and recreate team.

Luckily this does not occur with every upgrade I do, but we've had this at least 4 or 5 times in the last few weeks...

Any thoughts anyone?

Cheers
