1) Have a 2016 OS running hyperv manager, the Windows 2016 OS has no configurations are on it. It is not a DC for example. Not yet anyway.
2) Have added a virtual Windows 2008 R2 server taken from an actual real physical server into hyperv manager within 2016 OS.
3) Have setup the 2016 OS with a static ip that is in the same scope as the 2008R2 server's static ip address.
4) At this stage neither will talk to each other i.e. ping, this is because the 2008R2 server isn't seeing the virtual network adapter of the 2016 OS.
I've not used hyperv manager where i've added a virtual server from an actual physical server before. Normally, if creating a new virtual server on an OS it doesn't pose a problem. What is the way around this please for them to talk to each other?
