Windows Server 2012 R2 - Hyper V having trace route issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Team,

    We are facing one problem in our Hyper V environment. Hope you guys can help me out. Let me explain it what the issue was,

    We have installed Hyper V role on windows server 2012 R2 and the machine was up to dated with windows patches. Then we created External vSwitch and Internal vSwitch. On the Host we assign the Internal vSwitch IP address as and subnet

    Then We shared the internet from the External Adapter from the host machine to Internal Adapter.

    After that, we created a Virtual machine and assigned the Internal vSwitch to that Virtual machine. Once we done all the configuration, Internet was working fine. But when we try to ran trace route from Virtual machine we are facing an issue,

    1<sup>st</sup> hop having packet loss and it reach to the Default gateway (Internal Adapter IP)

    2<sup>nd</sup> hop shows request timed out

    3<sup>rd</sup> hop – its fine from this hop and it reach to the host IP address, from then on its usual traffic without timed out.

    Below screenshot for your reference,

    We would like to know, whether we have done the configuration in right manner, or it normal behavior in Hyper V.

    Please let us the know, if any change is needed.
