So, I’ve got a Hyper-V R2 Server with the network settings all out of whack. Here’s what I was trying to do…
PHYSICAL PORT 1
> Primary Network (10.1.1.x) > Assigned Address 10.1.1.65 > Also Used for the “Corp” Virtual Network
PHYSICAL PORT 2 > iSCSI #1 > Assigned Address 192.168.130.65
PHYSICAL PORT 3 > iSCSI #2 > Assigned Address 192.168.131.65
PHYSICAL PORT 4
> DMZ Network (10.1.2.x) > No Assigned Address (just pass-through) > Also used for the “DMZ” Virtual Network
The problem is, it’s really difficult to know which adapter is which in the Hyper-V OS, the Hyper-V Manager, and then in the Virtual Networking drop-down. Somehow in my fiddling, things got messed up and I can’t tell what is what. Ideally, I’d just reset the non-iSCSI networks and start over, but I’m not even sure how to do that. In my defense, I have about a dozen Hyper-V Servers here at work, so I’m fairly well versed in what to do, but this one has me stymied.
You’ll notice that Index 0 and Index 2 are for the iSCSI links. They seem to be ok. Index 3 is using a DHCP address, because I’d try to manually set it to 10.1.1.65 (my preferred static) and it wouldn’t stick. Ever. I’m not sure what Index 10 is for, since I don’t currently have any Virtual Networks configured.
You’ll notice that “Local Area Connection* 41” is referenced at the bottom of the first list, and with the 10.1.1.65 address that I want to use. No idea what that’s about.
Again, the iSCSI links (192.168.x.x) are fine. The lowest connection is the DHCP address to my corp network, though I’d prefer to have that be a static address. Not sure why it won’t stick.
Anyone have any ideas on how to sort this out?
