Hyper V -- VM with access to LAN and to DMZ RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Hyper V machine that contains 4 NICs. One is dedicated to the server running Hyper V - LAN. Three are dedicated to VMs - config is: 2 for DMZ traffic (connected to the DMZ port on my router) and one for LAN traffic connected to the LAN. I want to expose my VM server to the DMZ while also being able to provide LAN access via the single LAN targeted NIC that is dedicated to the LAN.

    I have set up one VM test server on which I have configured to have 2 NICs (one of the DMZ connected NICs and the LAN connected NIC).  The DMZ side, where I have set up with a static public IP (from ISP), this works fine.  In fact all VMs that I have setup through this single NIC (with different public facing IPs) work perfectly.  On this test server where I am trying to include an interface to the LAN, this will not communicate with the LAN (DHCP - cannot find, Static IP - no good either).  I really want it to get the IP for the LAN from the DHCP server I have.

    I have tried to create a VLAN (well, assigned a VLAN id to the Virtual Network Adapter - This doesn't work either).

    Can anyone point me to some instructions on this or explain where I am going wrong?

  • I solved this by removing the Virtual Network Adapter in Hyper V.  Running diagnostics on the NIC, It fixed some setting that it was very vague about and installed a new driver for the NIC.  Then I went back into Hyper V and added the Virtual Network Adapter and associated it with the NIC in question and it works.  Go figure.

  • Hi,

    Usually the "Network Reset" option in Setting is also a choice.

    Glad to hear that you have found a solution and thank you for sharing it here, it will be helpful to other community members who have same questions.
