So lets configure NIC Teaming in Powershell now.
The last part I’m going to cover in this series is how to install the Hyper-V role on server core system. This can be done a few different ways so I’ll show how to do it using powershell and how it can be done using Server Manager from a remote system.
In this post we continue with setting up and managing the Hyper-V server core system. Now in order to manage the server core system remotely we need to install the Hyper-V management tools on another server that has a GUI.
In this part after the installation we can give the system a hostname, ip address and configure DNS. This will all be done from the terminal and powershell. After you have logged into the system with the administrator account here is the process to follow.
So now with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 available, I figured it would be nice to do a step by step setup and install of getting Hyper-V up and running. The focus here is really to show how you would get Hyper-V setup using the manual installation method. I’ll also show how you can use powershell to configure the server core system. In the end I’ll have a system that ready to configure and run virtual machines. This is only the getting started basics so I will not be showing storage setups, clustering, etc. To keep the post short I will be splitting the process up.
