SBS 2011 - Uninstall Hyper-V role
Posted on 2014-07-31
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?
