Hyper V, Ensuring Servers can't "See" each other on the same host.
Posted on 2011-03-24
Hello, I have a Hyper V host (HP DL386 G6) running Hyper V v2 on SErver 2008 R2.
It has a VM running SBS2008 which is a DC, AD, Exchange server and a few other things.
It runs fine.
I have taken a copy of that VM and I want to run another version of it to test run some migrations on the SAME hyper V host.
The question I have is, is it possible to set this up to the live SBS2008 server is running and CANNOT see the copy of it running on the same HYPER V host?
I have the live SBS2008 VM running of for example "External1" virtual network (so linked to a physical network card).
I want to be able to set up a PRIVATE or internal virtual network and run the copy of the live SBS2008 to test migrations (It'll be deleted after a day or so).
It's obviously very important that they can't see each other.
Is this possible?
