Hyper-V Networking Best Practices
In most cases when you deploy virtual machines (VMs) on Hyper-V, you need to configure network access for VMs according to your tasks. The correct Hyper-V network configuration ensures a high level of performance and security for your virtual machines, Hyper-V hosts, and the entire infrastructure while improving the stability of the whole datacenter. A physical network adapter (network interface controller – NIC) and a virtual switch are the two main components required for Hyper-V networking. You need at least one of them to establish network connections for VMs. Today’s blog post explores Hyper-V networking best practices including: Use the latest drivers for your physical network adapters on a Hyper-V host. Using the latest network drivers, you get the latest available features provided by a network adapter driver, the maximum network speed and stability. Known bugs are usually fixed in the latest drivers and firmware versions. Even if your Windows operating system recognizes your physical network adapters and automatically uses built-in drivers, according to Hyper-V networking best practices it is recommended to install native drivers from the network adapter manufacturer.
