So I've been working on getting 2 VMs setup in Hyper-V today, a Windows 2003 server and a Debian Server. Below are the issues I ran into and how to solve them.
Windows Server 2003 Standard
The main issue I ran into here was the inability to run the full Microsoft Update web site. Basically when I clicked on Custom update, it would process for a while then end with an 0x80072ee2 error.
To fix this you have to disable TCPIP offloading.
- Add a REG_DWORD key/value pair:
- DisableTaskOffload = 1
Restart and you'll be able to access Microsoft's updates again.
The problem I ran into here, is that Debian does not detect the default Hyper-V virtual network adapter. To fix this you'll need to go to you're VM's Settings page.
- Select the network adapter and delete it
- Select the Add Hardware option
- Add a new Legacy Network Adapter
- Modify settings on this as needed
You'll now be able to install Debian on the VM, and the installer will detect the network adapter
