The network adapter on my base virtual server gets a 169

I created a base virtual server in hyper-v and it is getting a 169. The host 2008r2 gets a valid IP but I can not assign the virtual server a valid address. How can I fix this so the base virtual server gets a valid address? Is it using the wrong net adapter? If so how can I verify and change?

Make sure the network card in the guest is working properly by looking in the guest machine Device Manager. If it is working, it should get an IP on the same subnet as the host machine.

That probably means the virtual network type is set to Internal or Private. It has to be External for connecting the rest of the network (outside of the Hyper-V host).

It is working properly but not pulling a valid IP.

you have to go into the hyper-v Switch Manager and then create a switch that is bound to the host machines physical adapter (external), once created there in the virtual machines properties and then bind the network adapter to the newly created virtual switch.
