Configure Network for Windows 8.1 Client Hyper-V

In this post I will go thru the steps to configure the network for your Windows 8.1 Client Hyper-V. This is needed so your VM's can connect to the network.

1. Open your start screen and look for the Hyper-V Management Tools group. And click Hyper-V Manager

 

2. Click the Virtual Switch Manager option under Actions.

 

3. Because this is a new installation there is no network defined.

 

4. Type a name for your internal switch. In this example I use “Internal” as the name for the switch. Press OK.

 

Now you have your Hyper-V feature installed and network is configured. In my next post I will share how to configure a base virtual machine.

Are you ready to build your Client Hyper-V VM's?
