Hello People

I am having a slight issues configuring the 2 network cards on my server
I have a onboard network card and a additonal one and both cards have been detected on the network connections
The operating system i am running in windows serve 2012 which has the hyper v console on it, my aim is to run virtual machines on hyper v

I was told i should use one network card for the physical host and the 2nd network card for the virtual machines. Im not sure how to set this up or if i have set this up

I have created a virtual switch on hyper v and have selected which network card will be used for the virtual machines, however in network connections only one network card seems active how do i know which card is being used for the physcial or if its been used or shared with the virtual host.

This seems very confusing and i would appreciate your help

Thanks

uk_techy, I'm not one to type out what is already on a web page, so http://blogs.technet.com/b/jhoward/archive/2008/06/16/how-does-basic-networking-work-in-hyper-v.aspx might help.

Hi CaveDweller2

 

Thanks for sending this, the post explains if you have just one nic which im familair with already and know how to create a virtual using the single nic card

If you look at the second to last picture, I think it shows you that you Nic #1 is set to bind only with the Virt network switch and set the second nic to everything but the virt network stuff. or am I looking at it wrong? I know that is not what he is talking about, he is talking about that is the long way to get your virts to talk to the host but wouldn't that work? Just get them on different subnets and don't link the second nic to the virts in any way so they can't talk to one another. 

 

And if I am reading the first answer to the question on this page http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/f70980a0-8d43-4873-8821-eb3476aba558/2008-hyperv-host-2-physical-nics-optimal-config-help- that is what he is suggesting.

 

Sorry, I'm not that familiar with Hyper-V or virtualizing in general, haven't had a chance to do more than dabble.
