Exercise NIC/LOM Bonds on blade servers

Chris was looking to test the NIC bond functionality:

 

*******************

 

I’m trying to find a way to test/exercise NIC Teams/Bonds. Linux is pretty straight forward, just write a simple script that will do an ifdown on ½ of the bond, then an ifup to  bring it back online.

 

Is there away to do the same thing in a Windows environment? Do we have any hooks in to our NCU that we could script to take one of the NICs off line in the team to test failover?

You can use netsh to accomplish this, to disable one NIC at a time

 

netsh interface set interface <interface name> DISABLED

Have you tried this? Any other suggestions?
