I have a server 2008R2 with the hyper V role installed.
This morning everything was fine but around 8 a'clock users complained that the server was not responding.

Investigating the problem I see that the server has no connection to the LAN.
In lower right corner it says "IDENTIFYING NETWORK - NO INTERNET ACCESS"

I have tried using Group Policy Editor to fix this but I cant

Any suggestions?

Are you sure there's physical network connection? What does the switch the server's connected to, tell you (have a look at the logs).

That status usually means your server does not have an IP address.
Is the server configured with a static IP? If not, is the DHCP server working and serving addresses?

HTH,
