VT Technology's curator insight, October 16, 2013 6:13 PM
Lab Setup

For this article, let’s assume a small lab. The one where you have all VMs located on single host. Your need to have 2 subnets connected via a router.

I have setup a single Windows Server 2012 R2 host for this article. I have also created two VMs that will go on two networks I mentioned earlier. Let’s assume one VM is going to be New York, I call it NY-S1. We are going to have another machine somewhere in Europe. I call it EU-S1. Here’s what the IP addressing looks like:

SubnetVMVM IPRouter IP172.16.111.0/24NY-S1172.16.111.11172.16.111.1172.16.112.0/24EU-S1172.16.112.11172.16.112.1Host Configuration

Now that we know how we need our lab setup, let’s see how we can configure it. The question is, who is playing role of a router? The answer is very simple: Hyper-V host! And no you don’t need to install RRAS on the host either! What I am going to show you is an age old trick!

KB Article KB323339 from Microsoft discussed how to enable TCP/IP forwarding on Windows Server 2003, however, the referred registry entry “IPEnableRouter” can be traced all the way back to Windows NT 4. When you change IPEnableRouter from 0 to 1, you are allowing packets from one interface to be forwarded to any other interface connected to the same server. i.e. you are making it a router!

So let’s configure our Windows Server 2012 R2 host first. To keep this simple, I will use elevated PowerShell and run the following:

Set-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\system\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters -Name IpEnableRouter -Value 1

There is going to be no response from PowerShell except it will return you back to prompt. If you get something back, most likely it would be because you didn’t elevate PowerShell or you don’t have administrative permissions to edit that registry key.

Since we are changing parameters for TCPIP service, the change won’t be effective until after a reboot. Go ahead and reboot your Hyper-V host now.

Once your host is rebooted, we are ready to configure host networks. We will create two networks using “internal” type for virtual switch. One for NY and one for EU. We will simply call them that to make it easy. Here’s how:

New-VMSwitch -Name “NY” -SwitchType Internal

New-VMSwitch -Name “EU” -SwitchType Internal
