I setup my Hyper-V under Windows 2008 R2 Standard. But i can´t access internet (network) in virtualized machines.
First. I setup the hyper-v using this manual http://www.howtogeek.com/103884/install-hyper-v-on-windows-server-2008-r2/
The first doubt its on step "Create Virtual Networks", my dedicated server show only one network adapter "Intel(R) 82580 Gigabit Network Connection #2"
I dont check this adapter because the warning message in window -> "We recommend that you reserve one network adapter for remote access to this server. To reserve a network adapter, do NOT select it for use with a virtual network"
What I use a dedicated server (I access the machine by RDP), and the settings of external IP address its typed in properties of this adapter "Intel(R) 82580 Gigabit Network Connection #2". If I check it option box in wizard, can lost my RDP connecting forever? (because I order a dedicated and dont access phisically the machine).
I´m scared to check this option and lose the connection with the server. Then I kept uncked the click next, finish.
After installed, I access "Virtual Network Manager", create a new virtual network of type External. Connected to "Intel(R) 82580 Gigabit Network Connection", I have two options "Intel(R) 82580 Gigabit Network Connection #2" and "Intel(R) 82580 Gigabit Network Connection", the adapter with final #2 have my static IP address configered, when I selected the option "Intel(R) 82580 Gigabit Network Connection" its a other adapter, possible created by Hyper-V.
I created my VM (windows xp) with the Virtual External Adapter, but when the windows start, the connection with internet fault. I try put my secondary IP address with gateway, dns, and mask subnet, but the problem its same.
Can anyone help to connect correct with the Internet in my VM, and setup my secondary external IP address?
