I am trying to configure an Oracle Database Firewall / Audit Server as virtual machines on Hyper-V. The problem is that, for example, to install the Database Firewall on a virtual machine, the VM needs to have at least two NIC-s (up to three). During the installation process, no NIC-s (0) are detected. Normally the NICs are configured to work within a previously created virtual network (that is working with other existent virtual machines). So, my question is the following: Are there any incompatibility issues with Hyper-V and Oracle AVDF ? I have succeeded this task with VMware. All VM are running there, that's why I'm concerned about incompatibility with Hyper-V.
I'm going to assume that you have already added NIC's to the VM. Because that is too obvious.
Hyper-V can present 2 different kinds of NIC's to a VM: a Synthetic NIC or an Emulated NIC. A Synthetic NIC requires a Microsoft driver to work, whereas an Emulated NIC shows up as an Intel 21140 NIC that is more likely to be supported.
You get better performance with Synthetic, but if your platform doesn't support it then you have to use Emulated.
If you're using Hyper-V manager instead of Virtual Machine Manager, then Synthetic is just called Network Adapter and Emulated is called Legacy.
