How do I Mount a Physical DVD on Host to use on the VM Guest (not for the OS installation but to install an application after the os install is complete)?

I will have to check the specifics, but you can add the DVD-Drive and then mount the DVD iso as a piece  of hardware.  Though you will need to make sure the security is correct on the ISO, if I recall correctly, there was a specific NTFS security Hyper-V wanted to make this work, otherwise your user would get an error message at load time.

Oh, also be sure you lower or remove the "Boot from CD" when you have this.

In the Hyper-V Manager, under Settings... for the VM, select the IDE controller  you want add the disk to and choose DVD Drive then Add

On the next page that appears choose Physical CD/DVD drive and select your drive from the dropdown

Thank You.  The VM in question is Generation 2 and Im not dealing with a ISO but a physical disk mounted in the drive of the host that I want to access from the VM.

In Server Manager, Settings, Add Hardware is Grayed Out.  Im not sure where you are suggesting to selected IDS Controller.

You need to shutdown your VM before making any hardware changes

Under Add Hardware I have do not have an option for IDE.  I have SCSI Controller, Network Adapter and Fibre Channel Adapter.  Under Scsi Controller I already have an option for DVD Drive that I can access as a ISO - Image file or I have an option of None.  I can add another DVD here but have the same options for Image file of none.

Just reread one of your posts - Gen2 Hyper-V VMs do not have the option to add IDE controllers and do not support access to physical DVD drives.

Can you not just create an iso from the source DVD?
