Hyper-V Virtual Windows Server 2008 - cannot see network
Posted on 2012-08-30
I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 and using Hyper-V I created a Virtual Machine (again Windows Server 2008 R2). I can connect to it from the Hyper-V but it cannot see the network or the Internet or pinged it.
I have given it a static IP in the router and put that into the TCPIP settings V4. I have checked the MAC address is the same.
In the system tray it says “Unidentified Network – No Internet Access”
I have turned off the Windows Fire wall in case that is interfering.
I have set the Workgroup to be the same as the other machines.
I have been into Hyper-V to the Virtual Machine Manager and created a New Virtual Network, connection type External using HP “NC326i PCIe DualPort Gigabit server adapter”. I have enabled virtual LAN identification. There is also a second adapter “HP NC326i PCIe DualPort Gigabit server adapter #2” but using this I loose the connection to the server on the Remote desktop, the connection is not enabled on the host server
How do I get the virtual machine to see the network?
Your help appreciated
