How to Create NIC Teaming With PowerShell

This short guide shows you step-by-step on how to create NIC teaming with Windows PowerShell.

Step 1. Open PowerShell with elevated privileges

Step 2. Execute the following command,

new-NetLBFOTeam [TEAMNAME] “[NIC1]”, “[NIC2]”
  • [TEAMNAME] the name of team of network adapters.
  • [NIC1] the name of first NIC adapter.
  • [NIC2] the name of second NIC adapter.


If you have two network adapters, "Ethernet 1" and "Ethernet 2" and you want to create their team say "NIC-Team", the complete command should look like this,

new-NetLBFOTeam NIC-team “Ethernet 1”, “Ethernet 2"

Good luck!!
