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: 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.

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.
