We have 7 new VM Host 2012 Standard servers all running hyper-v. These hosts and VMs were all installed from scratch, there was no imaging, cloning or copying of images or VMs. When we started bringing up VMs on the last of these servers, we were experiencing erratic connection with VMs on one of the other servers. After a lot of hair pulling we realized two of the host servers had identical Virtual Switch Address Ranges as shown in the attached image.
We concluded this is causing a conflict and want to know how we go about changing the address pool on this host. As the image shows, the MAC pool can be changed, but the warning below says "changing this setting does not affect adaptors already configured. To apply a new setting to an existing adaptor, recreate the network adaptor by removing it and adding it aging"
Exactly what adaptor are the talking about? Are they saying to remove the adaptor from device manager on the host? or removing the virtual switch and starting again? Or removing the adaptor from the VM?
If anyone has a "How To" for correcting this problem it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
