In this simple HyperV I have one nic and one nic only. So it will share duties as the nic for me managing the box as well as providing the networking stack for the HyperV.
In the HyperV manager, I will click on Virtual network manager and build a new “external” network.
Click creat virtual network
Then on Add
In this test server because I only have one nic
I’m going to make sure the “allow the Management Operating system to share the nic card” is enabled.
I did not check the Enable virtual lan identification.
Now when I enable a virtual machine I just choose the networkingi to be bound to that external nic that I set up.
