I created 6 new WS2016 server in a failover cluster, with Hyper-v.
All servers are built the same, 4gb ram, 125gb hdd.
Now 4 servers I used my Virtual Switch manager to manage the NIC, with VLAN ID enabled, and changed VLAN Identifier from 2 to 100, all boot up snag a DHCP address and fully patched, then I add them to the domain and give them a proper IP address all good.
the last two server I do exactly as stated above, but after I get a proper DHCP address, I add them to the domain reboot, and then give them a static IP, but the static IP can’t ping or surf the net. Again, all the steps work fine with all the other VM’s that I created.
if I remove the static IP, I then get the Generic dhcp address of 169.x.x.x. I add the static and again nothing. I shut it down, add another NIC and I can get the proper DHCP, but that’s two different NICs, which I don’t want. I shutdown, remove old one and problem starts again.
Hope I explained that pretty clear.

You didn’t say it, but did you change the VLAN ID on the two problem servers?August 1, 2018 at 6:19 am #353916
yes, I’ve made them all the same. Just weird.
also ran Repair-volume –driveletter c –scan, but zero errors which I figured.August 2, 2018 at 5:58 am #353917
I found a work around, I shutdown the two VM’s, went into settings and added a second NIC, turned on VM’s, got a DHCP address, added Static to original NIC, and disabled second NIC. All works. Crazy.
oh new problem now, I can’t RDP to VM’s, thanks MS!! ugh.August 7, 2018 at 1:58 pm #353918
issues still exists. Takes a very long time to logon to the VM’s and I can’t RDP to them, not even via IP.August 16, 2018 at 9:04 am #353919
finally got this working. It was our two front end switches, the Virtual Link Trunking (VLT) wasn’t working properly with teaming the NICs. Quick fix after Dell tech/reps discovered it, rebooted the switches, boom all worked just fine on the Windows Server 2016 VM’s.
