Network Location RRS feed

  • Question


    I am running SCVMM 2008 beta with hotfix. I have create a hardware profile that is working fine, I can deploy new machine from the self-service portal and so on. But in the hardware profile I would like to configure the network card, but I dont have anything on the Network Location drop down menu. How can I create a network location or configure the network in my template machine?

  • The network location comes from the network location of the physical network adapters on the hosts managed by VMM.  By default VMM uses the network location discovered by Windows utilizing DNS.  To change the network location for a network adapter, go to the hosts wonderbar, select the host and view properties.  On the hardware tab find the network adapter that you want to change the network location of.  Check the "Override Discovered Network Location" check box and type in a new network location.




    If this is helpful in getting an answer to your question, please indicate so on the thread.  Thanks.
