Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Forgive me if this has been asked or is very rudimentary but I am just starting out and need to get this configured. I have been looking around and can't seem to find an answer.

I have a host server running Windows Server 2012 with a Hyper V Virtual Machine running on it. I need to get it set so that the host machine can access the vm. This has to be done without being connected to an external network.

We have a web site running on the host machine that needs to access some things on the vm.

Again I am new so step by step would be great.

This is pretty rudimentary, yes.

Basically, what you want to do is setup an internal network.

  1. Create a new virtual network.
    • Hyper-V -> Virtual Network Settings. Create a new internal network, and name it. This will create a new virtual network adapter on the host machine.
  2. Configure the host for the virtual network.
    • Go to the new network adapter for this internal network and set the network settings appropriately.
  3. Add a new NIC on the virtual network to the guest VM
    • Modify the VM settings and add a NIC on the network you just set up in the guest.
  4. Configure the new NIC on the guest.
    • Go to the new network adapter for this internal network and set the network settings appropriately.

Thanks for this. I know it is pretty basic, but I am just learning how to get these set up. –  Andy J Mar 5 at 15:44
    
@AndyJ No problem. We all had to learn the basics at some point. –  HopelessN00b Mar 5 at 15:55
