We got four physical NICs in each blade server for the following configuration in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter :

Teaming IconeOn each NIC-Team we have made a Hyper-V Virtual Switch.

On each NIC-Team we have different VLANs from our Multi-Tenant Datacenter comming through.

For our Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2 Cluster we need more NIC’s for our Hyper-V Nodes and we make them virtual with Powershell 4.0 :

Powershell ISE 4

Open Powershell in Administrator modus.

vNIC Powershell CMD

Here we make two virtual NIC’s with Powershell connected to the virtual Management switch.

  • VMNetworkAdapter called HBVLAN1250 for Heartbeat
  • VMNetworkAdapter called CSVVLAN1251 for Live Migration

Each NIC in the right VLAN configured with Powershell After these Powershell commands you can configure the VNICs for the Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2 Cluster : Network Hyperv
