vmxnet3 not work with WINDOWS NLB

Hello

 

I have test in lab and believe   this is true. I success build windows NLB with ESXI Intel network adapter (1G). But same settings I fail at vmxnet3 adapter. 

I ask at Microsoft communities, I don't get help.

So I try to ask at here,  does VMWARE can have some analysis in package level to support it?

Thank you.

 

Regards.

Scott

From the Microsoft VM can you ping another VM? This is for test the correctly functionality of Network Adaper on the VM.

I try to simulate in my lab your issue and I'll try to give you a answer (VMware side)...I must have some specifics:

ESXi Version?

NIC --> vmxnet3 

How many NIC on the ESXi Node?

Microsoft OS?

NLB is the feature of Network Load Balancing on Microsoft ..is correct?

 

Thank you
