Dedicated Server (Hosted) Running Hyper-V. Problems understanding NIC's
Posted on 2012-03-30
I have a hosted server running Windows Server 2008 R2. I've installed Hyper-V.
I've installed guests, SBS2008 and Windows 2008 Server Standard. My goal is to use SBS2008 as my server and use the other for training.
Both guests are turned off. Things run well. I can remote in and explore files, adjust settings as you would expect.
Whenever I start a guest operating system things go badly. When remoting in I get kicked out every 10 - 15 seconds. I generally have to have the hosting company restart my server to regain access. I suspect I have a problem with the NIC setup.
My NIC (only one) is set as follows:
I created a Virtual NIC and bound it to the physical NIC.
The guest machings at connected to the Virtual NIC
Looking at the NICS, the Virtual NIC has the bindings and the physical NIC is bound to the Virtual NIC.
Does anyone have a clue as to what I've not done correctly?
