Microsoft has moved the location of where you configure the LM network with the release candidate of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V. The old location was confusing … right-click on the properties of a single Virtual Machine resource (in the VM group), and that applied to all VMs. As a speaker, the bewildered and confused look on people’s faces at that point was always worrying.
And thankfully, it is now relocated to somewhere more obvious, and clear that it’s a cluster wide setting:
- Right-click on Networks
- Select Live Migration Settings
In this new dialog box, you can order the networks (from the above Networks node in Failover Cluster Manager), and select which ones are to be used for Live Migration. I like to make my network names clear, so it’s obvious what is what here.
