I have a problem regarding my VMs running Windows Server 2008 R2 HUB / CAS role in exchange 2010.
Here's some more information with regards to the VMs:
- Enabled MAC spoofing in VM
- Configured as HUB / CAS servers
- Configured as CAS arrays
My problem is that both VMs Network Adapters became corrupted just randomly. What happened was I started the VM, was able to log in to the VM, but the VM showed only the desktop (no explorer.exe, etc). I shut down the VM using Hyper-V but when I started it again, network adapter is already corrupted.
What happens is the LAN symbol in the notification bar hangs and when I try to start Network and Sharing Center it just freezes and takes forever to load. When I look at Device Manager, I don't find the "Microsoft VMBus Network Adapter".
First, I tried removing the network adapter in the Hyper-V VM settings then re-adding it, but to no avail. I also tried adding other network adapters.
I tried re-installing Integration Services using the "Insert Integration services disk" but when I restart the server, it gets stuck on "Preparing Windows for Configuration" at startup.
Now I'm going to re-install my HUB / CAS servers and it really frustrates me.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Or maybe the cause of it?

but the VM showed only the desktop (no explorer.exe, etc)
>> This is a general Windows system issue instead of a Hyper-V issue. It seems that the system didn’t boot properly, this may cause by virus or broken system files.
I shut down the VM using Hyper-V but when I started it again, network adapter is already corrupted.
>> Shutdown the VM using Hyper-V Manager is something like push the power button on the physical computer to power off the computer by force, and this may cause file break.

Thanks for the answers.
Experienced it again now. I tried a different approach: I tried to ping other computers from the problem computer. To my surprise, it was still working. However, I can't access the Network and Sharing center because it takes forever to load.
Edit: I guess it's only an error with the display; it was still working as I said.
