Creating NIC team without knowing the team members

I was asked how to create a NIC team only using the 1GB adapters without knowing how many 1gb NICs were on the server.

 

I think this should solve the problem

 

New-NetLbfoTeam -TeamMembers (Get-NetAdapter | where Speed -ge 1gb | select -ExpandProperty Name) -Name MyTeam

 

Use New-NetLbfoTeam to create the team. The team member names are generated by

 

Get-NetAdapter | where Speed -ge 1gb | select -ExpandProperty Name

 

By putting that statement in parentheses as the value for the –TeamMembers parameter the results are used as the value for the parameter.  Shouldn’t matter now how many NICs or what they are called.  You can modify the filter criteria as required.
