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

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

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