ProLiant memory leak with Windows Server 2012 nic teaming

Today I stumbled across a problem affecting all HP ProLiant systems that run Windows Server 2012 and use the MS NIC teaming functionality.

By using the NIC agent v. 9.40 there is a memory leak that could fill up your system's memory by up to 5MB/h. Currently there is no hotfix available from MS, they will resolve this issue in the next version of the NIC agent.

By now the only resolution is to reduce the refresh cycle of the HP SNMP agents via their control panel. This way, the memory leak will get reduced but not completely stopped.

Here is the link to the HP advisory that is related to this problem.
