Switch Embedded Teaming and Windows 2019 NIC issue

Hey all,

I’ve been trying to enable Switch Embedded Teaming on Windows 2019 [Version 10.0.17763.107] using the below command:

New-VMSwitch -Name SETSwitch -NetAdapterName "em1","em2","em3","em4" -EnableEmbeddedTeaming $true -AllowManagementOS $true

The command executes successfully and creates the virtual switch but breaks the NICs.  In device manager they are shown with an exclamation mark and under details show the below error:

"The device cannot start. (Code 19) {Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful."

I have tried updating the NIC firmware and upgrade/downgrade of driver with no luck.  

I have also tried the exact same process on Windows 2016 on the same hardware and it works perfectly.

The hardware is a Lenovo SR650 and NIC is Intel X722 1GbE.

Any ideas as to what’s going wrong?

Thanks,

Mike
