Hyper-V VM's cannot access the internet.
Posted on 2011-05-05
we have a setup consisting of:
1. physical instance of server 2008 SP3 R1 not part of a domain- running hyper-v with 5 Nics. 4 of them are in a balancing team which is assigned as an external network within hyper-v and the other one is the servers own NIC for remote admin.
2. Virtual instance of SBS2008 which is domain controller, exchange, DHCP, DNS server etc.
the issue is this... the SBS is unable to connect to the internet. i have no idea why but it can access and ping the internal network.. it says that it has internet connectivity but you cannot reach the internet or ping any external addresses. it did work on setup at the weekend but has dropped today.
why would this happen?
on the physical server in the network and sharing centre it states that the connection only has local connectivity so i assume the issue is there but why could this happen? could it be a issue with the way the nics are setup?
