This article discusses network adapter fault tolerance support in Windows 2000.


The network adapter drivers included with Windows 2000 do not support the fault tolerance functionality of certain network adapters because:

  • The drivers do not include the layered miniport driver needed for this functionality to work.
  • The drivers require a Setup program and a non-standard user interface that are usually provided by third-party driver manufacturers.
