    Question Hyper-V Network Adapters

    Hi folks,

    Two questions relating to network adapters:

    1. I have spotted our SIMS server is running on a legacy network adapter. Is replacing it a case of installing integration services, shutting down the server, adding a normal network adapter, and then removing the legacy adapter?

    2. This Technet article ( How to Configure Network Adapters for a Virtual Machine ) refers to network optimisation, but I can't figure out what dialog it's referring to. I see no mention of this in the properties of a running or shut down VM. Anyone know where this is, or have things changed? (the article is 2009)

    TIA

    Yes, the proper hyper-V one is synthetic so is massively faster and more efficient than the legacy ones which they only really have for compatibility. Just install the integration tools (if client is not already 2008 R2 because they are already included in that) shutdown the VM and add the new adapter and tell it to connect to the same place as the current one. It should then show up in the VM so you can use it.

  3. Thanks to SYNACK from:

    Thanks. I did just that and all seems OK. That explains why some servers have the tools already and some don't. We had to use 2008 rather than R2 for SIMS, so hopefully this will improve the performance.
