Microsoft Hyper-V

The Hyper-V virtualization solution from Microsoft is available both as a free standalone product and as a part of the Standard Edition of Windows Server 2008 R2.

When you install the Hyper-V product the network card is automatically connected with the first virtual switch. In the properties of the LAN connection only the vSwitch protocol should be active.


For the host, there is a new LAN connection that is connected to that virtual switch.

Single IPs

The use of single IPs is easiest with the help of virtual MAC addresses. These can be requested through Robot, under the "IPs" tab of your server. Next to the single IPs is a button that can be used to request virtual MAC addresses. These MAC address can then be entered into the settings of the VM as static MAC addresses of the network card. To boot via PXE ( so for example, the Hetzner Rescue System can be used) requires the use of the 'Older network card' type.
