  • How do i install an additional nic on Hyper V Server? (was: Hyper V Server)

    Hi

    How do i install an additional nic on Hyper V Server, I have copied the driver to the Hyper V Server and ran pnputil -i -a <driverinf> in the driver directory, install was sucessful but when i use configurator i can only see one nic how do i set the ip on this second nic so i can use it for remote administration.

    Thank you

    its cool

    the nic is installed, its just not added to hyper v i think, i used the below to see the nic was installed, if i wanted to use it as a virtual switch instead of a remote admin nic what would i do?

    Show NICs
    netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces
    Show NIC Configuration
    netsh interface ipv4 show config
    Configure Static IP
    netsh interface ipv4 set address name=2 source=static address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mask=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    Add Primary DNS
    netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=2 address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx index=1
    Add Secondary DNS
    netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=2 address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx index=2

      Re: Hyper V Server

      when i try add a static address for the nic


      Configuration for interface "Local Area Connection 3"
      DHCP enabled: Yes
      InterfaceMetric: 10
      DNS servers configured through DHCP: None
      Register with which suffix: Primary only
      WINS servers configured through DHCP: None

      netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Local Area Connection 3" source=static address=192.168.16.200 mask=255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.16.254

      i get this error?

      Invalid gateway parameter (gateway). It should be a valid IPv4 address.

      anyone any ideas

      this may help
