New-NetLbfoTeam "PhysicalTeam10G" –TeamMembers "10GBPort1", "10GBPort2" –TeamNicName "PhysicalTeam10G" -TeamingMode SwitchIndependent -LoadBalancingAlgorithm Dynamic

New-VMSwitch "TeamSwitch10G" –NetAdapterName "PhysicalTeam10G" –MinimumBandwidthMode Weight –AllowManagementOS $false

Set-VMSwitch -Name "TeamSwitch10G" -DefaultFlowMinimumBandwidthWeight 0

Add-VMNetworkAdapter –ManagementOS –Name "Migration" –SwitchName "TeamSwitch10G"
Set-VMNetworkAdapterVlan -ManagementOS -VMNetworkAdapterName "Migration" -Access -VlanId 12

@jiayaozhu-MSFT
Thanks but I need your help to configure QOS, I've read that the recommended Minimum Bandwidth for each virtual network adapter the sum of minimums at or below 100 so I configure it as follows

for 10 GB teamed adapter

"Migration" -VmqWeight 90 -MinimumBandwidthWeight 40
"VMs Traffic" -VmqWeight 80 -MinimumBandwidthWeight 35

for 1GB teamed adapter i will disable VMQ

"Cluster_Network" -MinimumBandwidthWeight 10
"Management" -MinimumBandwidthWeight 10


So does the above configuration configured as a best practice ?

Thanks,

Hello:

Thank you for your reply!

According to my research, the configuration method you want to use is feasible. If you want to know more about QoS configuration, you can follow the following official commands step by step:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/netqos/?view=windowsserver2019-ps

You can also use group policy to better manage your QoS:
