Virtual Desktop Template Error Server 2012
Posted on 2013-01-14
I have Server 2012 set up in a lab environment with the intention of creating a Virtual Windows 8 Desktop I can deliver across the LAN, basically for proof of concept and to test it's overall capabilities.
I have a single server serving as the DC, running DNS, DHCP, and the RDS roles. I have created a virtual Windows 8 machine and I noticed it was not receiving a proper IP address. I ran syprep nonetheless to see how far I could get. When I went to create a Virtual desktop collection, the aforementioned issue bit me and I got the following error : "The network adapter of the virtual desktop template is not connected to a virtual switch"
I aborted the creation of the collection at that point.
Additional info: I have an internal switch specified. I am not sure if that is the correct type of switch. The server has 2 physical NICS, but I disabled one. Server has Dual Quad Core Xeon processors,16 Gb of RAM, and 150 Gb of Disk Space.
How can I rectify this issue ? I did try creating a new VM, but still had the issue with the NIC.
