Monday, January 21, 2013 7:20 AMI wanted to test Xendesktop but i got stuck in a situation where i dont know what i should do.
I have a Physical host machine (HP Server 32GB RAM)
I installed Windows Server 2008 R2 on it and added Hyper-V role.
Then i created a domain environment using Hyper-V (Private) network .
The Hyper-V Host is actually on a Test Vlan we have But it has access to the Production VLAN. So to keep everything simple , i created a private network in the hyper-v.
Now to test XD I need access to use SCVMM
I am not sure if this works:
I want to have a SCVMM machine Running within private Network Inside Hyper-v Host. But this SCVMM machine should have access to the Host that it os on as well.
Can i have 2 Nic Cards , one Private and one Internal on SCVMM server , so that i can manage my private network.
Is there any guide on how to manage a Host using SCVMM running inside it , but dont disturb the Production network at all.

The basic prerequisite for VMM is to have network access to the managed hosts.
If your hyper-V host is on a test VLAN, i keep it simple and put the VMM on this same VLAN.
To install VMM as a Virtual Machine inside your Hyper-V host, just create a External Vswitch on the Hyper-V host and deploy VMM on this Vswitch.
Once VMM up and running, add your Hyper-V as a managed host.
After that, you can create additionnal "Private networks" from VMM console according to your tests needs.
