Windows Server HyperV/en

The following describes how additional single IPs can be used in conjunction with Hyper-V for virtual machines.

With Hyper-V this can only be done by using virtual MAC addresses, which can be applied for via Robot, for each additional single IP.

Roles and Features

The required roles and features are:

  • Hyper-V and management

These can be installed via the Server Manager using the "Add Roles and Features".

During the installation of Hyper-V a virtual switch with the physical network card needs to be created.

Creating a Virtual Switch

NOTE: This step is only necessary if during the installation of Hyper-V a vSwitch was not created.

  • Open the Hyper-V manager and within the manager for virtual switches add an external virtual switch and select the option "Allow sharing this network adapter with the management operating system".

  • Create a new "Generation 1" virtual machine

  • Via "Settings" remove the automatically added network card
  • Via "Add Hardware" create a new legacy network card and connect it with the internal virtual switch

  • Under "Advanced Features" statically enter the virtual MAC address, which can be gotten from the Robot
