Hyper-v Virtual Machine- Ethernet port versus Network Adapter
Posted on 2012-09-09
I created few virtual machine on my Hyper-v environment . when I was looking at the network adapter on one of my virtual machine I realized that the speed was 100M while all the other shows 10Gb, then when I looked a the name it shows Intel adapter while all the other one shows Microsoft virtual.
so I turned the virtual machine off and realized under settings for this VM I see "Ethernet Port virtual switch" while others shows "Network Adapter virtual switch"
my questions are:
1-what is the difference between the ethernet port and network adapter
2-how did I create this ethernet port since I am trying to recreate the steps but can't figure out where and how to add this hardware to my VM
3- of course the VM that has this issue is one of my DC , so if I remove the ethernet port and add the network adapter instead and reconfigure the ip on the adapter would I create any other issues? this VM is a DC-DNS-DHCP-
Thank you for your help.
