2012 Hyper-V VM NIC Setup

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

you can setup the switch to be bridged and that will allow the VM to have connectivity to the physical infrastructure, if you have a DHCP it will get an IP or you need to assign an IP manually.

I rebuilt the virtual switch & it works now that I told it to share the host adapter. Then vm had dhcp the same ip address as the host has. So I changed it statically set to a different ip. It connects to the internet and can ping the host, which is a DC. Now I just cant get it to join. It ask me for credentials but says it can not find the domain. All firewalls are off. I just need to get this to join the domain & i'll be golden...

make sure that DNS is set correctly to point to the DC
