I set up a Windows Server testbed and asked a question here:
In the midst of the discussion, I tried to set a static IP address for each of the two VMs that I had implemented.
I used a method where I used Advanced Features of the VMs network adapter and assigned a MAC address.
Cliff Galiher took exception to what I did and I took that advice seriously.
Later, I tried to set things back to what I thought had been suggested but doing this broke the testbed.
So, the testbed remains with what I did....
I should point out that in the original testbed, each Server VM was on a different subnet and had a separate physical NIC.
Now I'm setting up another testbed with the real Servers and similar Hyper-V VMs.
I need to make sure that the VM Servers have static IP addresses - as before.
I don't want to overthink this or to overdo it.
So, what is the recommended approach?
In this case, the 2 VMs in the Hyper-V platform will be in the same subnet and I envision one physical NIC for the pair.
So, in that sense, it's just a little simpler than the original testbed.
