I have a strange situation. I'm running HyperV 2012R2 on a proliant DL380 G8. There are six virtual machines running on this machine, mostly Windows 2008 and windows 7.
I'm experiencing problems with the internal switch. I can still reach the HyperV machine, but the virtual machies are no longer connected to the network.
I am suspecting it has something to do with the backup. I have a Symantec Backup BE3600 appliance and when this machines begins to backup the switch stops working.
I did an upgrade to BE version 2014 and at first it seemed to be better, but this morning I had to restart the HyperV machine again.
I have two questions. What could be causing these problems and how can I solve this? And another question is only as long as I haven't found a final solution, is ther a way to restart or recover the internal switch without having to restart the whole HyperV machine?
Thnaks in advance
