I  have to Hyper V core machines. Each core has 2 vm's, a domain controller and a file and print server. Names for reference below:
HV1, DC2, FP1
HV2, DC0, FP2

The issue is with FP2, I thought I set it up exactly like FP1, however when I go into Windows Explorer and click on Network, nothing shows.  Any ideas?

Not exactly a lot of troubleshooting to go on. Have you verified your IP settings with ipcomfig. Have you tested DNS with NSLookup? Have you tested connectivity with Ping? Did you verify your VM settings. Your virtual switch settings? Physical cables? Each one of those is a valid point of failure and a a troubleshooting step.

I solved my own issue. There was a bad port on the switch that the server was using. Changed port and all is well.
