Networking Hyper-V and Clients
Posted on 2011-09-07
Hi everyone, nice to be back...
Networking newBie questions...
Right very simple, started working for a new company who have nothing so I'm doing a little moonlighting as Network Admin.
Consider this - a Fresh Start - internet connection, firewall/router, a physical switch/wireless and that's it.
So I've purchased two Servers for Hyper-V R2, installed them and got remote Admin working from a Windows 7 Client. Updating the Hosts file on the client was a biggie. Remember I'm still in WorkGroup mode.
So I create two VMs, one on each machine, using Windows 2008 R2, one for AD and the other for Management and File Sharing Services.
The same problem seems to exist with both machines however. I can't see them, except for using remote connect.
What do I mean by that. I'm on my windows 7 client and I go to network setting and look at the map and I can't see the machines, either physical or virtual. they do not appear on the Work Network either.
what's recommendations can people make to
1. Allow me to see the physical and Virtual Machines
2. Set up everythig so its secure without turning off all the firewalls...
I'm sure afer that I will then be able to persuade my Windows Clients to connect to the domain...and share files...
Thanks and regards
