hyper-v 2012 r2 network adapters
Posted on 2013-12-24
It seems I have created a mess with my network adapters in HyperV. This is a Dell server with two NICs
I have installed Hyper-v 2012 R2. I installed the first guest machine. All is well except for networking.
I have gone into Virtual switch management on the guest and added a virtual switch. I couldn't get it to show up in the guest settings so I created another one. This also does not show up.
The network adapter on the guest settings shows Not Connected. The network connections in the host OS (2012 R2) shows two Hyper-v network adapters and they both show "unplugged"
On the host, I have two NICs both enabled. When I look at the status in Network Connections, both show not connected. In properties, the only thing checked is "HyperV Extensible virtual switch.
There are also two Virtual Switches (ones I created previously) One has a DHCP address and the other has a 169 address. The physical connects on the two nics are plugged into the same network.
I need to get network adapters working in the VM and clean up any mess I made of it.
