Thin Client and Virtual Machines Thread, Hyper V going head to head with Virtual Server in Technical; Morning all,
As with all things IT there is an impossible deadline to meet and little time to implement the ...

The technologies aren't too far apart. I'd say use what you know works if your deadline is fast approaching. If you have a bit of extra time Hyper-V would be the preferred option. Make sure that BIOS is set up correctly to use it and then install the role - i've done it on a few servers now and i've not come accross a problem.
At a rough guess I'd say check bios and then check nic drivers?

It sounds like you're using pre-existing Virtual PC servers on Hyper-V.
What I believe is happening is the NIC within these VMs isn't functioning when connected to a Hyper-V system.
To rectify this you need to un-install the Virtual PC add-ons from the VM (you can do this under Hyper-V). Make a note of the network config first.
After a reboot of the VM, install the Hyper-V add-ons. This will setup the relevant NIC drivers. You should then be able to configure the network settings as required.

I take it you don't have both Hyper-V and Virtual Server 2005 installed on the same server? This would likely cause network issues, amongst others.

Just to confirm,
- The server has a clean install of Hyper V
- The BIOs has been checked and set.
- The virtual machines are being created using the default settings from Hyper V.
- MS Virtual server/pc have not been used on this server
- The use of MS Virtual server/pc is a last resort as I know I can get them working
I hope this clears the confusion.

I don't know how i've done it but I have managed to connect the servers to the network.

Perhaps a little after the fact, but it's nice to know why these things happened . . . .
Had you defined a network in Hyper-V (Action > Virtual Network Manager)? After you've done this, the network card on the virtual server will be available for selection during the machine configuration wizard.
