Hi George,
I configured as your instruction but one time I can ping 2 port (ex: A1 and B1) this mean the first port on server is active and second port is passive. Although, I create NICs teaming with 2 ports active.
I configure on Hyper-V 2012, create NICs Teaming with: Teaming Mode -> Switch Independent; Load balancing -> Hyper-V Port; Standby adapter -> None. I used 2 switch Cisco 2960 and SAN HP MSA1040.
Please help!
Thank you.

Thank you. This instruction can apply for Hyper-V 2012?
