    Hyper V Network Settings

    I'm having trouble configuring my network lab on Hyper V, I'm trying to connect Server 2012 R2 to my home router network, I have reserved a IP address on my router along with the nic mac address but it's still not picking up. Seems to work quite well when I used VMWare. Any ideas? :confused:

    New Media Player Needed!!

    Afternoon folks! ;) I've been iTunes on my PC as my main media player for all my Mp3 files. I'm music lover so a good media player is needed for me to musically entertain myself every day. iTunes was good but it's started to get slow and I wanted a change, if I can't find anything good then...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Yeah no doubt....I found out the hard way, I have to put the testing on hold until the extra RAM arrives.

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Great! I understand....I will do just that, as soon as I get extra RAM. I started to build a WSUS VM as well to see how it works but the extra is needed for the other client machines I'm going to build as well.

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Ok....I'm a bit confused, (good thing I'm not doing this in the real world) Should I have either two DCs, one with DNS and the other with DHCP or both with DNS and DHCP? Or Should I have two DCs, both running DNS and then another server running DHCP? Wouldn't the third server need to be on...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Oh, I thought you mean't for me to promote the 2nd server as a secondary DC with DHCP. So you're saying that it should be a normal server with DHCP? :neutral:

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Ok so I have created two DCs, the first one being the DNS server and the 2nd being DHCP. When it comes to replication, is that something that is done automatically or is it is something that I need to configure myself. What is the next step? If I remember from the top of my head, it was...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    My NAS is setup as a normal hard drive but once I add the 2nd HDD then it will be configured for RAID 1. It holds all my music and I wanted to keep it separate from my desktop. I have a Sharecenter by D-Link. It has the latest firmware but since the latest Win 10 release it has been playing up...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Thank you for your responses.....I will setup two servers and get them to talk to each other. First things first though....I need to get it to work, something is wrong with the connection to my NAS. I'm all about Desktop Support stuff but trying to learn about servers and networks now.

    Slightly stuck with configuring my first CV on the network. I have to reserve IP address using DHCP reservation on on my home router. (Virgin Media Broadband) to assign my first server with a static IP. I'm not entirely sure what it supposed to be set as default gateway and DNS server. I...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    I hear that.....I'll keep all the VMs on my desktop then. No problem. My NAS will be configured for RAID 1, as soon as my 2nd HDD arrives, (mainly keep it for my music but it has plenty of space for my lab. I'll definitely create a spreadsheet with all the domain info, I usually do that...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    That sounds brilliant, I have both a fast PC and laptop, I could install VMware on both machines, run the install the server ISO and get them to communicate with each other. The only thing my PC hard drive is SSD so there isn't much space, I do have a large NAS so can I run the virtual server...

    How can I setup a virtual tech lab.

    Hi there ;) I am looking to setup some sort of a virtual lab at home to help teach myself about servers, network etc. I am currently doing a MTA Server fundamentals course but it is hard for me to learn by just sitting watching online videos all day. I wondered if it is possible to setup...
