Have you ever found yourself in a situation with a production VM where you need to add a new NIC or replace a failed NIC.  Until now just like a physical computer you had to shutdown the VM to add or remove the NIC.

Now in Windows Server 2016 you can hot add and remove a NIC from a running VM.  There a few requirements that must be met.

  • Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10 Hyper-V Host
  • Generation 2 VMs
  • VM Configuration must be upgraded.
  • VM Guest either Windows or Linux operating systems.

Having this capability should make our lives easier as IT Admins when having to add or replace Network Adapters.

Until Next Time, RIDE SAFE!
