        Hello, I am switching to Hyper-V from Virtual Box and my virtual machine iso for Ubuntu 16.04 and Kali are simply not able to connect to the Internet. I have followed the instructions provided here to create a Virtual Switch using Hyper-V and then pointed to this switch from the VM. But the VM simply won't connect. Ubuntu reports that it is "offline."

        I am using Hyper-V at suggestion from Docker who updates Docker for Windows which runs with Hyper-V but does not as aggressively maintain the Docker Tool Kit.

        I am going to need to fix this to go further with Hyper-V.

        I do run successfully the same VM in Virtual Box on a different machine with no problem. The VM simply reports that it is "off line."

        The Virtual Switch is called "External VM Switch." Powershell reports that the adapter is up:

        vEthernet (External VM... Hyper-V Virtual Ethernet Adapter #2 42 Up 00-28-F8-14-61-EE 26 Mbps

        Is there some additional information about Virtual Switches and why they will or won't work?

        A complete list from Powershell is below.

        Thanks!

        Cheers,

        Rich

        +1, there is no reason to configure each virtual port like the vswitch is a physical. Let me trunk a physical port and hang multiple single-vlan vswitches off of it.

        I agree this is a must have. Define VLAN on vSwitch like you do in VMware portgroup. Doesnt make sense to define per VM.
