If you create a VM in your Hyper-V Hypervisor, do the VMs work ?

if it just the V2V-ed VMs which are not working, what if you add a new network interface ?

The Guest VM network interface is connected ?

No they dont, somehow i cant get the Vswitch to work, i put the two nics in the Host to teamup, going via the server manager, then i am selecting a static IP to the team. then i select the create a new Vswitch setting and select the Microsoft network adapter multiplexor driver, still no go, the server itself has internet and i can rdp into it, the VM's none has nor network nor internet access.

okay, let's keep it simple, and just create a vSwitch connected to a single nic (uplink) in the host.

Yes but i wanted to make one team for load balancing, so in this case i connected two cables to different switches in case of a failure, however if i do one cable, i would have to disable the second network card and use just one?.

Yes, I appreciate what you are trying to do, but small steps, and get something working, to isolate this issue.

Ok i see teaming with two cards might not work as i expected them for the VM's, is there a setting i am missing, i want to use one port for managment and the other for the VM's but i cant find how to do that it only show me teaming every ware.

destroy the team, at the OS level.

Hyper-V Manager, look at networking, what do you have currently set ?

I already destroyed it, recreated the settings and the set one nick for management and the other was added to the virtual switch, this the the trick, no teaming, i will need a separate network card to do that. thank you for your help again.
