Random Network Adapters showing up in VM's


  • I have an odd issue I've been trying to tackle for a while now and am no closer to solving.

    I"m running 2 Hyper-V Hosts currently not in a cluster (to likely change soon).
    Each host has 2 Physical NIC's in a team with a switch "Virtual Switch" for Hyper-V. I recently also created new virtual switches for Migration and Cluster to prepare for the Hyper-V cluster.

    So on my VM's I'm seeing Adatpers show up with "TAP-Windows Adapter v9 #2" or "TAP-Win32 Adapter OAS#3". There can be as many as 1 or in a current case 6. Removing them does nothing as they eventually will come back.

    The IP's are generally 169.254.x.x though I have seen a 10.x.x.x IP.

    For some time I did run a VPN on Server 2012, this was through a serve role. I do not run OpenVPN and I switched my VPN to run on my DD-WRT router.

    This has frustrated me for some time, so any help is greatly appreciated.
