In this video, learn how and why to create a logical switch and uplink port in Virtual Machine Manager. This creates a link between your virtual network and your physical management network.
- [Instructor] In order for our virtual machines…to be able to communicate with the different VLANs,…we've got to create a switch.…A switch will allow us to set up inter-VLAN routing…between different VLANs.…We see here, our switch is not created yet,…so we need to create that.…But first, we have to get rid of any switches…that are in our virtual hosts,…in order to bind it to a specific network card.…You cannot bind the same network card…to more than one switch.…Let's go ahead and switch over to our VMHOST2,…and let's make sure we delete that first.…
We are in our VMHOST2 server,…let's go to the virtual switch manager,…and then we're going to go ahead and click on it…and we're going to remove it,…and apply, and I will click OK.…If any of your virtual machines are tied back…to that switch, you'll now see an error.…So we need to make sure that that's not the case.…And we see here that there is no network card,…so we're good.…If you see that error, just go ahead and delete…the network card from the virtual server settings.…
Note: This course is the first of two that will cover SDN in a Server 2016 network. This course maps to the SDN deployment objectives in Exam 70-745.
- Planning an SDN
- Configuring a Hyper-V switch
- Creating network objects in Virtual Machine Manager
- Creating IP pools and VM networks
- Creating logical switches and uplink ports
- Configuring an edge gateway
- Creating multitenant VMs
