IP addressing with Hyper V
Posted on 2015-02-24
Question about how to assign static IPs to a VM server...
I have a Virtual Server running Hyper V that hosts 4 different VMs...and the physical server itself has 3 NICs on it.
Here is my setup:
NIC 1: Static IP used for physical server for management
NIC 2: I want to use this NIC for VMs #1-3
NIC 3: I want this solely for VM #4, so it's a static ip.
My question is, do I leave NIC #2 open to DHCP on the physical side, and then assign it a static address inside each VM? Or should I assign both the physical and VM network interfaces a different static address?
