How To Configure VM’s With Static IP On Hyper-v Host Windows Server 2008 R2?

#Topics: assign static ip on vm or host in server 2008 r2 hyoer-v,static address vm guest hyper v hidden,setup static ip microsoft hosted virtual network?,problem with static ip on hyperv server,hyper-v VM static ip address problem

I have Hyper-V role installed on Windows server 2008 R2 installed on a machine with 32GB RAM and IBM System X3400 M3 Server. I created the Guest VM using the VHD that is already installed with Windows server 2003 SP2 using the Hyper-V manager tool.

==================================================================================

The problem:

I cannot IP address of the host machine from VM, where host is connected to network where i can surf and do remote desktop very easily. Even the host machine cannot ping the VM.

From the VM i cannot surf , do not see any system in the network.

Cannot do Remote desktop with the VM guest hosted on Hyper-v.

==================================================================================

Structure of my Network(Pls Note all the systems in our network are allocated Static IP including the HOST and the Guest VM):-

  1. HOST Machine

================================

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.44(Preferred)Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1 
  1. GUEST Machine

=================================

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.45Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

Please help me with examples that includes creating VLAN with Static IPS.

Thanks,
Mukesh

How is virtual networking configured on the Hyper-V server? Make sure you have a virtual network defined as “external” and connected to the server’s network card, and make also sure you connect the VM’s virtual network card to this virtual network.

It sounds like your virtual switch may be misconfigured. Check out this article and verify your settings. If your host can’t ping the VM, then you have some kind of switching/routing problem.
