SBS 2011 - Uninstall Hyper-V role

Have a new client call me to say their server wasn't finding PCs on the network. I quickly discovered that Hyper-V had somehow been installed on their SBS 2011 server. It's obviously the virtual NIC causing DHCP problems. There are no VHDs or any VMs on the system so it looks like Hyper-V was installed by mistake.

Before I set about uninstalling it, I was wondering if anyone knew the safest way to do this? Is it simply a case of removing the Hyper-V role? Will this delete the virtual NIC and restore DHCP back to the original or are things more complicated than that? Any other special steps to make before or after? For Example, Do I need to any disable services first?

if there are no VMs configured then you are ok to delete/uninstall the role. if the Virtual switch has an IP configured, note those settings etc and assign it to the physical NIC. If that is the case, do that out of hours if not then go ahead and do it.

That mostly worked. DNS, DHCP and RRAS had to be redone afterwards. I'm still getting some errors about ipv4 addresses not being found when running DCDiag but nothing seems to be wrong in terms of functionality.

To clear these up, After removing Hyper-V, open up into DHCP, remove the scopes (taking note of any reservations or other customisations if you have any) and rerun the "Fix my Network" Wizard in the SBS Console.

This cleared up all the DCdiag error messages in one swoop.

FYI, you can run HyperV just fine on SBS2008/2011 despite what I've been told, you have to give it a dedicated NIC.  As you have noticed DHCP requests do not get handled when sharing 1 NIC.  A virtual switch is configured between the physical NIC and the OS.
