Im trying to setup a test env with hyper-v.
I have: Parent: WinServer 2008 R2 (With ONE physical NIC). The Parent is connected to a router. Guest 1: Win7. Guest 2: WinServer 2008 R2.
Guest 1 seems ok, it can reach Internet. Guest 2 has Unindentified network and of course cannot reach Internet.
Parent: Local area connection: Checked Microsoft virtual network switch protocol. Checked Internet protocol version 4 (If unchecked, cannot rdp to this machine) with obtain IP address automatically and same for DNS.
Interesting thing: The status and connectivity of this local area connection is constantly changing. It goes from Status: Enabled Connectivity: [Nothing]
Status: [Domain name] Connectivity: No internet access
It changes like 15-20 times / minute
In hyper-v manager I have set an External virtual network pointing at my NIC. "Allow management...." is checked. So, in network connections there is a Local Area Connection 3 with settings: Everything is checked except the switch protocol. with obtain IP address automatically and same for DNS. IPv4 Connectivity: Internet
I read a lot of tips that I should go to Network List Manager Policies and set location type to Private. I have done that and restarted, but still no go. And the local area connection in guest2 has an autoconfigurated ip address and I have not set a gateway.
No it's up and running without me doing anything. In Network connection details I see date and time for Lease obtained. That happened approx. one hour after my original post. What is the delay about? If my settings are ok, how do I speed things up?
