Nano server cannot detect network card in virtualbox or vmware workstation! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Friends,

    I am new to nano server. Really i am sure that its a wonderfull os that microsoft created.

    But unfortunately, I have a problem with it. When i create a vm in virtualbox or vmware workstation, it cannot detect network card to config. I know that it should detect it to set ip. Does nano server cannot run in virtualbox or vmware workstation?????

    please help me to resolve this issue.

    Really thanks a lot

  • Used the Deploy Nano Server tool to create an ISO for nano server install and installed that on VMware Workstation Player 12 ok. Got network access.

    Selected the -OEMDrivers option (install Core server drivers) so had those and as Core server installs ok guess that is required for VMware VM or others when creating nano server install media.

  • Did you install the VMware or VirtualBox Drivers before deploying Nano?

    Best regards,

  • From what I have seen until now, Nano Server runs best on Hyper-V.

    As much as I tried I couldn't run It on other platforms.

    You can run it on Windows 10 Hyper-V easily or Windows Server Hyper-V.

  • Yes, this installs the drivers for physical deployment, instead of the virtual ones which are obviously only for Hyper-V.
