In this video, learn the purpose of a virtual switch and the mechanics for creating it in Hyper-V in Windows Server 2016. This will set up your ability to create software defined networks in upcoming videos.
- [Instructor] One of the main components in both Hyper-V…and software-defined networking is the virtual switch.…So what is a virtual switch?…Well, a virtual switch does several things.…It can connect virtual machines to the network.…When we create virtual machines,…they don't have any type of connectivity to either…the host or the rest of the network…unless we add a virtual switch first.…And there's three different types of networks…that you can connect in a virtual switch.…
We have the external, the internal,…and the private type of network.…External means that the virtual switch will allow the…virtual machine access to any other server on the network…as well as to be able to go out to the internet.…The internal switch is a little bit different.…It allows connectivity between the host…and the virtual machine and that's it.…You may not find as many uses for that type of connection…because you really want to have your servers…available to most of your clients,…but in case you have a development box or some other…
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
