    Thanks Ossian.

    1. Created new Server2012R2 Vm
    2.Added static IP address to vm server2012R2
    3. Added DNS role
    4. Added local router IP as DNS forwarder
    5. Added DHCP role.

    What do you mean add the server IP for DNS Server?

    What I want to accomplish is setup vSphere5.5 with two physical ESXi hosts. Setup Vcenter, AD, etc. Have all the lab vms intergrated in AD with DHCP and DNS and vlans…
    I created the DHCP scope and my Server2012R2 vm is not working with DHCP scope. I manually added my local router DHCP IP.

    I understand with no uplinks setup, the network will be isolated……

    sorry if i don’t make sense:)

    Re: Hyper-V Sever 2008R2 home lab

    hello,

    I changed my setup and installed Hyper- V 2012 on a Vertex SSD and now I am having an issue installing the network driver. see visual. any thoughts?

    I have a PCIE LAN Realtek and I tried loading the win7-64 bit drives.

    The plan is, have the Hyper V-2012 on the SSD and load my virtual servers on 1TB HD.

    Please advise

    Re: Hyper-V Sever 2008R2 home lab

    I installed Hyper V-2012 but I get a not network adapter found. I have the drivers, but in the command the D: is not ready. Is the only way of installing the NIC driver is thru the command prompt? thanks

    Thanks, I will try tonight.

    Doesn’t WIN7 have to be part of a domain to connect to the Hyper V server ?

I have Quad Core 1TB 16GB desktop and I want to setup a lab with Exchange,DC,DNS etc to practice and being takins MS exams. i don’t have windows 8 and only have a laptop with windows 7.

    Re: Hyper-V Sever 2008R2 home lab

    hello everyone – haven’t had a chance to reply, I was out of town.

    1. I don’t have windows 8, only windows 7 – I read you can still manage Hyperv 2012 with window 7. will this be ok?

    2. Are these the correct steps to setup Hyper-V

    Download from website burn to CD/DVD.Boot from disc, follow steps to overwrite hard drive and install.

    After reboot, config management IP address.

    install the Hyper-V management snap-in for Win 7

    Install server management tools pack.

    Go to add/remove and enable the Hyper-V snap-in.

    Open Hypver-V snap-in and connect TRY to connect to box.

    Does windows 7 need to be part of a domain?

    3. Once I finish the steps 2. do I just pop in the CD to install Exchange on 50GB and 2GB of RAM on my host?

    4. I understand not all products are easy to setup but I just need some assist. thank you.

    Well, I read Hyper V 2012 can sometimes be difficult to setup and ESXi is easier to work with.

    A appreciate the help.

    Re: Hyper-V Sever 2008R2 home lab

    Thanks for the advice. Maybe I am jumping to soon at an unfamiliar territory but I am up for the challenge of setting up my lab. I just need a little boost to get me going, so my next silly question is, I installed Hyper- V 2012 and now I am at the command prompt. Do I just now pop-in windows server 2008 CD and begin installing? I kind of wish I can find a step by step article online and I haven’t. I would really appreciate any help links, resources, videos how you learned to setup Hyper V. Thanks

    Re: Intel Core i5 or AMD Quad Core

    Thanks for the advice Ossian.

    The Intel Core i5 is $50 dollars more. I will probably go with the AMD machine, they are running around $600 on ebay.

    Re: Routing Faxes received to network folder

    Hello,

    I have a physical machine receiving faxes. There is a third party company that manages our Exchange Server 2007 and currently we don’t have unified messaging. This solution I am looking for is only for my region and I was looking into something like efax, not sure if efax can route faxes to a network folder. Do you have any suggestions? Do you recommend Unified messaging?

    thank you.
