I followed the below links for installing Ubuntu Server 11.04 as a virtual machine on Hyper-V. However, after installation, Ubuntu can't access the LAN. Please help. Thanks.

Since Ubuntu is not officially supported by Hyper-V, you can only hack and see if you are fortunate.

You can leave a comment under to see if this Microsoft employee can shed some light.

At least one user reported that he/she has Ubuntu 11.04 working fine.

See here:

You can see that it is the 11.04 version, on the Hyper-V, with Networking working. Just follow the steps there.

I think that though it isn't fully supported, you can still work with network since other Linux distros do support it, and they are the same in the base (Networking and so on).
