Hyper-V failover RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have two windows 2012 servers running hyper-v. One is the live server and the other one is the replica. I need to do maintenance on the live server. After i shut down the main server and initiate a failover on the replica for all the vms, will the Networking info automatically populate or will i have to do some manual input?

  • It depends completely on your setup. Having DHCP is one way. Configuring a specific static address is another way. On the replica service, select the VM and click "Settings". Under "Network Adapter" you will be able to see the network settings that you control - including the vSwitch that the VM needs to connect to any static IP address that needs to be assigned.
