I'm about to pull my hair out!

I have a DC1 running Windows Server 2012, with 2 NICs - and These are configured for public and private LANs, respectively. This works great.

I have created a Windows Server 2012 Standard VM in Hyper- V on the DC. How do I configure the VM/Hyper-V to connect and register with AD?

I've created two External NICs - both of which are assigned to the 2 NICs on the nachine. I want to assign IPs and, respectively, to the VM's two NICs.

It can't see out of the VM and the network cannot see into the VM.

Detailed instructions would be great as I'm not a pro in Windows Server.

Well, what about you tell us how you CONFIGURED THE VIRTUAL NETWORKS IN HYPER-V that you plan to assign the nic's to? That likely is the error. That said - voting to close for being off-topic.

Figured it out... Hyper-v was reversing the NICs inside the VM. For instance... ----------------------------------------------------------- | NIC | Host | Child | ----------------------------------------------------------- | vExternal 1 | 10/24 Subnet | 172/24 Subnet | ----------------------------------------------------------- | vExternal 2 | 172/24 Subnet | 10/24 Subnet | ----------------------------------------------------------- Once I realized this, I switched the IPs in the VM and voila! –  Joshua Dec 8 '12 at 6:34
