    Hyper-V virtual switches difference?


    I made a new external switch in Hyper-V, and the screenshot below is what I have now:


    Hyper-V virtual switches difference? [​IMG]


    First 3 adapters from screenshot are as follows:

    1. Physical realtek adapter
    2. Default (non removable) virtual switch
    3. vEthernet is the external switch I made

    BUT, what is this 4th switch? (the one highlighted in the image above)

    My question is what's the purpose of this 4th one here called:
    vEthernet (vEthernet (Exte)

    If I disable it, nothing bad happens, my network works on both host and guest systems.

    Btw. I don't know if the external switch made this one, it was present there since long time ago because it's not the first time I made external switch.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 x64 v1809 - Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager Unable to Create Default Switch

    After upgrading to v1809 from v1803, I turned Hyper-V feature Off then On.

    Since the upgrade, the Default Switch no longer exists and the Virtual Switch Manager is unable to crate it automatically as it would normally. I can see the Default Switch appear for a few seconds in the Network Adapters, then its gone. This happens
    several time whenever I launch the Virtual Switch Manager.

    I can create other virtual switches.

    Once the Virtual Switch Manager lists the Default Switch with a Load Failed message.

    I have used netcfg -d command to delete all adapters and Turned Hyper-V feature Off/On several times with no success.

    Suggestions welcome. Hyper-V virtual switches difference? :) Thanks

    Hyper-V virtual switches difference?

    Where is the Hyper V Manager, How to I start it ?

    I am trying to setup an XP virtual Machine on Windows 10 Pro.

    I followed the steps in Neil Peterson article of 5/9/2016.

    System Requirements - done - ok

    Install Hyper-V - done - ok

    Create a Virtual Switch - skip

    Create a Virtual Machine

    Create a Virtual Machine with Hyper-V Manager

    These steps walk through how to manually create a virtual machine and deploy an operating system to this virtual machine.


    • In Hyper-V Manager, click Action > New >
      Virtual Machine
      to bring up the New

    Uhhhhhhhhh - this step obviously implies one knows

    1) Where the Hyper-V Manager is

    2) How to start the Hyper-V Manager

    Isn't that odd ?
