Need help connecting my VM to the network
Posted on 2011-05-12
It’s a long story but I will try to keep it short. The problem that I am having is that a new VM is not connecting to the network.
I currently have 1 Hypervisors (Hyper-v 2008 R2 core-install) that we purchased to move most of our app server to virtual. It has been running 1 VM for over 3 months without issues. I am ready to start moving more to it but I cannot get the new VMs to identify the network or even get DHCP (yes I did check the cable). The Server has 2 NICs on it and they are both plugged in. However one NIC does not seem to be able to get an IP address. This is a new server so I’m hesitant to believe that the NIC that is built into the MB is bad. Nevertheless when I have the new VM use the same NIC as the VM that is working, it still does not see the network. I have a test server with the same configuration and I have 3 VMs running using the same NIC. What am I missing? What am I doing wrong?
