Issues with multiple Hyper-V RRAS/VPN VMs

Posted on 2012-09-19

I have a dedicated Hyper-V host to run multiple RRAS/VPN Vm's.  Each VM shares the Lan Virtual Network.  Each VM has it's own  External Wan Virtual Network.
One of the VM's is working correctly.  The others seem to install OK but I notice the following on the others:

Routing and Remote Access > Server > IPv4 >General, the interface called Internal, Type Internal shows Not Available under the Ip Address

Routing and Remote Access > Server > IPv4 >IGMP>, the Internal interfaceis blanked out (dashes across everything).

The VM's are on the domain but, I am at a loss as to why the internal (connector?) is not up and showing the IP range I set up for leases. I use the working one as a comparison for settings and the like.

Any ideas?

    You do have 2 network adapters configured for each vm and the network adapter is not the legacy adapter? And the External adapter is configured to use the correct physical adapter that corresponds to the External WAN ip

    Yes, I have two NICs for each VM although the internal Lan nics are common (same virtual network) for internal traffic. Unique ip addresses on each internal vm nic VM but all on the same subnet.  External nics are unique to different external routes and are on their own individual v-network and physical nic.

    I am beginning to think it is the nic itself.  I removed all roles (routing and remote access),
    Removed the internal lan nic from the vm and tried to use the one remaining interface to reach outside.  No such luck.  I don't think it's a driver but, I downloaded the Intel drivers from IBM for my server and tried to install.  The install program didn't even see the card and the install failed.
    I'm not exactly sure what to do at this point other than pull the server and try other cards.
    I just want to know that this should work.
