I asked a question some time ago that was about a Server testbed I set up.
It's still up and running and useful.
But I perhaps went about setting the static IP addresses on the Server VMs in an overly complicated and dysfunctional way.
So, I'd like to try once more to make it more "conventional".
The network diagram is attached.
The VM setup was the original concern. But I also notice something in the Hyper-V machine interface. So, I'll start with that:
There is a physical interface getting 192.168.13.103 via DHCP AND a virtual interface with static IP 192.168.13.4. Is that normal or is that odd? I wouldn't think that having two IP addresses used up would be normal. BOTH interfaces have the same MAC address.
Now, on to the VMs:
There's a dual-NIC PCI card.
The physical NICs have no configuration.
The virtual NICs are configured with static addresses and have been manually assigned the MAC addresses from the physical NICs they relate to (presumably that's the overkill?)
If this is wrong, then how might I change it so things will continue to work? I don't think that removing the MAC addresses from the VMs did the trick the first time I tried it.
