Hyper-V - Many Virtual Switches linked to one physical NIC RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi everyone,

    I wish i knew if it is possible to link one physical NIC to many virtual switches. My NIC receives VLANs from a trunk and all tagged frames arrive at it ; i wish i could get as much virtual adapters as i got vlans at the entrance of the physical card.

    Best regards,

  • Hello Gregory,

    Microsoft Hyper-V switch can bind with only one Physical switch at a time when you try to create and External Hyper-V Switch.

    As of now there is no other way to get the one NIC to be linked with multiple Hyper-V Switches.
