Hyper-V connecting to the Internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I am very new to Windows Server 2019 and trying to setup a test bed.

    My server is connected to a local switch via 2 teamed NICs, and has Internet connectivity. I have created a virtual switch to allow the VM I built (running Ubuntu on the VM)

    I have read a lot, and tried a lot, but no success in getting my virtual switch to connect to the Internet that is running on the local server.. Virtual switch is set to External, using Microsoft Network Adaptor Multiplexor Driver.  DHCP is enabled, but I don't get a proper IP address on the vEthernet Adapter... I am banging my head on the wall.

    I have tried turning on Sharing on the Teamed NICs too.

    Any clues on what else to try would be appreciated. 

    ipconfig shows me this:


    Windows IP Configuration

    Ethernet adapter NIC Team - NIC1 and NIC 2:

       Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
       IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
       Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
       Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

    Ethernet adapter vEthernet (New Virtual Switch):

       Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
       Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::ca9:67f9:52e6:3f1e%30
       Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . :
       Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :

    I have been to several sites trying to get an answer to this, with many others seemingly getting this working fine by doing  a few of the things I have already tried. I am surely missing something, as it doesn't look that it should be this difficult to do.

    I just need the VMs I make to access the already working Internet connection on my Win 2019 server. 

    Hope someone can shed some light on this for me. Merry Christmas too!
