Windows server 2016 Hyper V internet connection switch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am setting a virtual machine under Hyper-V.

    I have been setting up Hyper-V virtual machines but on a desktop computer and everything ran perfectly, network too. 

    It is my first time working on a hosted server. 

    The host is a Dell Poweredge C6100 server, Intel E5-2670 2.60 GHZ 16 Cores / 32 Threads with 96 Gb RAM and a 500Gb SSD running Windows Server 2016.

    I created a Hyper-V virtual machine with 4Gb dedicated RAM and installed Windows 10 pro. 

    The issue is I can't configure internet access on the VM.

    On the host, I had initially three connections : 

    - Ehernet and Ethernet 2, Intel I350 gigabit network connection

    - Microsoft Network Adapter multiplexor

    As for the two first connections, there is no IPV4 but for the multiplexor there are gateway, DNS, etc.

    I am not too sure of how these work

    My VM switch is connected to the Microsoft Network Adapter multiplexor and it created a vEthernet virtual switch on the host.

    I tried leaving it DHCP and also tried to put some static IP but I can't get any connection on the VM.

    I need help.

    Thank you
