Setup Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2012 R2 - VirtuallyBoring Microsoft Remote Desktop Services [RDS] allows users to access centralized applications and workstations in the data center remotely. Microsoft RDS is the new expanded and renamed Microsoft Terminal Services. In this post I will document the implementation of RDS in my home lab using an ‘all-in-one’ configuration. vBoring Blog Series: Server Roles in RDS: Network Basics Features | Documentation | Knowledge Base | Discussion Forums Prev Contents Last Next VMware Workstation provides several ways you can configure a virtual machine for virtual networking. Virtual Networking 101: Understanding VMware Networking On a basic, structural level, virtual networks in VMware aren't that different from physical networks; vSphere is designed to mimic the functions of a physical network, so a lot of the network hardware you'll find in the real world, you'll find virtualized in VMware. If you understand how physical networks operate, then understanding virtual networking shouldn't be too difficult. Before jumping into an explanation of how VMware handles virtual networking, I'll first provide a quick refresher of the basic equipment that makes up a physical network. If you already have a firm understanding of how networking works, then you can skip the following paragraph. To connect to a network, a computer must be network-capable, meaning that it must have a working network interface controller (NIC), also known as a network card or network adapter, installed.
Using VMware: Understanding the Virtual Switch Introduction In this article we will explore the VMware ‘Virtual Switch’. The Virtual Switch is nothing more than a logical switching fabric built into your VMware infrastructure (ESX) so that you can network your Virtual Machines (VMs) however you need them. In the following sections we will cover the basics of the Virtual Switch, terminology used, its use, configuration and management. To view the Virtual Switch, you will need to be using VMware, the VIC and have access to VirtualCenter.

Bridged Networking Features | Documentation | Knowledge Base | Discussion Forums Prev Contents Last Next Bridged networking connects a virtual machine to a network using the host computer's Ethernet adapter. Bridged networking is set up automatically if you select Use bridged networking in the New Virtual Machine Wizard or if you select the Typical setup path. This selection is available on a Linux host only if you enable the bridged networking option when you install VMware Workstation.
Networking for VMware Administrators: Book Excerpt A good understanding of networking is becoming crucial for virtualization administrators and here to fill this gap is Chris Wahl and Steve Pantol's Networking for VMware Administrators. The book covers a wide range of virtual networking environments, addressing virtual switching and networking, and the differences between physical and virtual networks. With a focus on VMware vSphere, the text offers plenty of real-world examples which focus on building a good networking foundation. The following excerpt focuses on how virtual switching differs from physical switching. TUTORIAL: Hyper-v in Virtualbox Installing a hyper-V in virtualbox is not advisable. As you install a virtual machine in a virtual machine, but for testing things out it’s an easy solution. I assume that you already have installed a virtual machine in VirtualBox. If you do not know what that is, please click here.
Understanding NAT Features | Documentation | Knowledge Base | Discussion Forums Prev Contents Last Next Network address translation — or NAT — provides a simple way for virtual machines to use most client applications over almost any type of network connection available to the host. The only requirement is that the network connection must support TCP/IP.
How to Configure Network Settings on a VMware ESX Host in VMM Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager You can use the following procedures to configure logical network settings on a VMware ESX host in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), and to view compliance information for physical network adapters on the host. To make logical networks available to virtual machines on an external virtual network, you must associate logical networks with physical network adapters on the ESX host. Compliance information indicates whether all IP subnets and VLANs that are included in the network site that is associated with a logical network are assigned to the physical network adapter.
