General information for Virtual Switches – network adapter:

 

-Bridge in OS is automatically created by HYPER-V the moment you add Virtual Switches to your external network interface

 

-Important information: Start with Windows Version 10 there is an issue with new feature ‘Default Switch’ in Hyper-V. The default switch will bind your standard hardware ethernet adapter and will maybe block proper internet communication for Host PC.  

 

For ideal test environment on Workstation PC we recommend to have at least two physical network adapter available. One is bind to default switch. The other is Gateway for Host PC to the internet.
