Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 basic network configuration steps 2/2

This blogpost will continue earlier blogpost which we made to configure netoworks via VMM. We got lot of questions regarding next part and here it is. First post can be found HERE

Just for to summarize we now have the following logical networks and IP Pools:
vmmnetwork01

 

And I assume that you have already created VM networks for the following logical networks. If not, please do like down under:
vmmnetwork22

Next we we need to create new uplink port profile:
vmmnetwork02

vmmnetwork03

Select needed logical networks:
vmmnetwork04

vmmnetwork05

Second step is the create Logical Switch:
vmmnetwork06

vmmnetwork07

vmmnetwork08

 

Select uplink mode (Team or no uplink team) and add earlier created uplink

 

vmmnetwork09

 

Add port classifications (not necessary, but recommended)
More details can be found from my friend Kristian Nese´s blogpost HERE

vmmnetwork10

Here is example which we used
vmmnetwork11

Logical Switch created:
vmmnetwork12

If you haven´t already added any Hyper-V host under VMM, please do it and continue then from here. Next we will configure logical switch to host:
vmmnetwork13

vmmnetwork14

add new logical switch:
vmmnetwork15

If you choose to use Team, select correct nics and uplink port profiles.
vmmnetwork16

Then we will need to add vNICs. First management vNIC. As Management is our only native VLAN and we want to keep current IP address we will choose following settings:
vmmnetwork17

Then cluster vNic. As you can see we are now get IP address from IP pool.
vmmnetwork18

and finally Live-Migration vNIC
vmmnetwork19

And apply. You can see the current status from Jobs:
vmmnetwork20

and after it´s done from host:
vmmnetwork21

 

If you are creating Hyper-V cluster, repeat these steps to both host.
Then you can start creating Cluster
vmmnetwork23

vmmnetwork24

Add all needed nodes and select IP Pool
vmmnetwork25

Configure needed storage:
vmmnetwork26

Check the summary and you are done!

vmmnetwork27

 

Hope this helps you to get understanding of the configuration steps.

  1. Hello,
    Do you have a test System Center Virtual Machine Manager
    Two Hyper-V (1 and 2 site) Merged into SCVMM Hyper-V Cluster (1 and 2 site)
    Perform Hyper-V Virtual Machine Internal Transfer if feasible?
    In SCVMM Management (Hyper-V Cluster 1 and 2 Site) Transferred Inside a virtual machine.
