Hyper-V RC Tip -- Installing and Setting IP

By wolfgang. 28 March 2008 11:54

The release candidate for Hyper-V is now out. I am doing some performance and feature testing. Meantime, here are some times on installing Hyper-V on a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64-bit core build.

Name the computer:

  • netdom renamecomputer %computername% /newname:<your server name>

Enable remote management:

  • On the core server: WinRM quickconfig
  • On the client: winrs -r:<your server name> cmd

Set the IP address:

  • netsh interface IPv4 show interfaces
  • netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Interface" source=static address= mask= gateway=
  • netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name="Interface" address= index=1

Install Hyper-V:

  • Download the Hyper-V RC and copy it onto the server
  • wusa.exe Windows6.0-KB950050-x64.msu
  • start /w ocsetup.exe Microsoft-Hyper-V
