Virtual Connect and NIC Teaming

Virtual Connect supports NIC Teaming (or NIC bonding) on server NIC ports. For Windows on x86, VC supports Network Fault Tolerance (NFT) and Transmit Load Balancing (TLB) but does not support Switch-assisted Load Balancing (SLB). For Windows on Integrity, VC supports Network Fault Tolerance (NFT), Transmit Load Balancing (TLB), and static Dual Channel with only two NIC ports in the team, but does not support Switch-assisted Load Balancing (SLB). For Linux, VC supports any NIC bonding type that does not require 802.3ad (static or dynamic using LACP) on the server NIC ports.
