I have a MS Server 2012 Standard. I installed Hyper-V and created a MS Server 2012 VM.

When Setting up the Hyper-V it gave an option to setup a virtual switch so I did. It only offered me to use 2 nics that aren't even plugged in. So I chose "internal" See attachment.

So here's the thing. I'm working on the physical box REMOTELY and I CAN NOT LOSE CONNECTIVITY or I'll be screwed. I have 2 live nics plugged in but one disabled. I thought I could possible use it on the VM . I don't know if the host would share it's nic and let the VM have it's own different IP address.

Can someone please help and tell me how to setup the physical Hyper-V virtual switch and VM nic? It appears to have a connection and throws this error “Ethernet” Doesn’t Have A Valid IP Configuration"

This is my first one sorry for a newbie question...

Thanks
