Server 2012 No Internet Access

Well I guess this is a pretty stupid error caused by my own misconfiguration :-)

I have set up a new Server 2012 with the hyper v role installed.
I can confirm that this server has full conectivity with the Internet.

On top of this I have created a virtual server also running Server 2012 and configured this as a domain controller for a new forrest.

This server can access computers on the lan as well as pinging the firewall.
My problem is that this server has no access to the Internet.
DNS is installed and configured with forwarders pointing correct BUT their ips can not be resolved.

In lower right corner the NIC says "unidentified network - No Internet Access"

How do I solve this? :-)

PS-  You might also want to try changing the network type under Network and Sharing Center, to the right of "NetworK" should be a customize link.  That may allow you to define as domain or public.
If not, below that should be the option to turn on Network Discovery, try that.

Thank you for all your input.
It turned out that there was an error with the virtual nic applied to the virtula server.
I removed it from within Device Manager and then restarted the virtual server.
Afer applying static ip everything worked!
