There are lot of blogs and posts out there and I was having trouble sifting through them and I'm in a time crunch.
I've been tasked with building a hyper-v development environment. the main goals are:
A) allow copy/paste of files between office workstations and hyper-v host and guest VMs both directions.
B) allow RDP in both directions (workstation to guest VM, guest VM to workstation).
C) keep broadcast traffic to a minimum so that the guests are not hammering the regular network with their arp's and other network traffic. the nature of the applications that will run on the guests are such that there may be lots of arp traffic.
D) eventually there will be other hosts with guest VMs that need to be able to communicate with the guests on the other hosts.
E) for many reasons I was hoping to keep the guest VMs on their own subnet so we're not eating into our main one.
F) I can't see any reason to make the guest VMs part of our domain, so we're thinking of leaving them in a workgroup. is it important that they be in a workgroup with the same name as our domain?
G) we also need to be able to RDP to the machines once we're VPN-ed in from the outside network.
H) the guest VMs need internet access.
we have 4 NICs on the host machine, initially we only have 1 free port on the switch. a new switch will be ordered next quarter due to budget.
Thanks a ton. earn some points!
