I’m relatively new to Hyper-V Server and to managing FortiSwitches via a FortiGate
FortiGate 60F on firmware 7.0.9
Pair of S224E switches on firmware 7.2.2 connected via fortilink
Dell PowerEdge T740 server running Windows Server 2022 with Hyper-V Server role. Hosting 2 Windows Server 2022 VM’s
The host server has 4 NIC ports, 2 each 10G and 2 each 1G
Would like to use a Trunk via the FortiGate switches with one Ethernet connection coming from each switch going to the 2 10G ports on the Dell PowerEdge R740 Server. Would like to do this for greater reliability and potentially greater networking speed.
I created a Trunk Group via the FortiGate on the FortiSwitches as follows:
- Click New, Trunk Group
- Name Trunk Group
- MC-LAG, click Enabled
- Mode, click Active LACP
- Click 2 ports from right navigation, click OK
- Click OK
I then created a NIC Team in the Windows Server Host as follows:
- Name Team, i.e. NicTeam-01
- Verify desired team member are checked
- Select Teaming mode: LACP
- Load balancing mode: Dynamic (verify correct setting)
- Standby adapter: None (verify correct setting)
- Click OK
- Click refresh on Local Server to view updated NIC team setting
When I tried to create a Hyper-V virtual switch using the host Virtual Switch Manager I don’t see the NicTeam-01 listed in Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager. The only item I found that might relate to this NicTeam-01 is titled Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Driver. Is this proper title for this NIC Team?
When I click OK to create the Virtual Switch, I get the following error:
Error applying Virtual Switch Properties changes
Failed while adding virtual Ethernet switch connections.
Attaching a virtual switch to an LBFO team is deprecated. Switch Embedded Teaming (SET) is an inbox replacement for this functionality. For more information on LBFO deprecation please see https://aka.ms/LBFODeprecation. To override this block, use the AllowNetLbfoTeams option in New-VMSwitch.
I have done some research on this, but I can’t determine a proper way forward. Any suggestions?
