Corpnet subnet for public cloud test lab consists of three computers (DC1, APP1, and CLIENT1) that are directly connected to your organization network, but form a logical Corpnet subnet through DNS configuration and the presence of the corp.contoso.com
Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain. This is in contrast to the Corpnet subnet defined for the Base Configuration test lab, in which the Corpnet subnet is isolated from your organization network. The Corpnet subnet for public cloud test lab allows
the computers on the logical Corpnet subnet to access Internet resources directly, enabling public cloud technology configurations and scenarios.
This figure shows the computers and their connections to the organization. You can implement this configuration using physical computers, virtual machines, or a combination.
If you are using Windows Server 2012 and the Hyper-V server role for your virtualization solution, you can configure the Corpnet subnet for public cloud in Hyper-V on a single server as shown in the following figure:
The key elements of this configuration are the following:
Create the computers of the logical Corpnet subnet in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V with the following:
