Internal switch reset to public network profile after each reboot

Hi, I’ve created an internal switch with NAT (Windows 10 Pro for Workstation, OS Build 17763.529) and added to the switch some VMs. I set the profile to private using Power Shell, in order to allow the host and the guests to see each other. The internal
switch is bundled with the Default Switch as Unidentified network, and executing the Power Shell command on it changes the Default Switch’s network profile to private too.

But after reboot the profiles of Default Switch and the internal switch are reset to Public. Changing the Networks List Manager Policies of
Unidentified network to private with secpol.msc leads to problems in the creation of the Default Switch on startup.

Is there a way to preserve the Internal Switch private status after reboot, without having to execute the Set-NetConnectionProfile every time?

Thanks for your help, Marco

When restarting Hyper-V server on Windows 2016 it shuts down, after security update


After running Windows Update we are unable to restart the Hyper-V Windows 2016 server: when restarting the Hyper V Server it shuts down instead, and we need to physically push the power button on the server in order to start it again.

The Virtual Windows 2016 server does not have this problem, and restarts fine.

In the event Viewer we have the following information:

The process C:WindowsSystem32RuntimeBroker.exe (HYPERV) has initiated the restart of computer HYPERV on behalf of user HYPERVAdministrator for the following reason: Hardware: Maintenance (Planned)
 Reason Code: 0x84010001
 Shutdown Type: restart

Event ID: 1074


The kernel power manager has initiated a shutdown transition.

Shutdown Reason: Button or Lid

Event ID: 109


The WinRM service is not listening for WS-Management requests.

 User Action
 If you did not intentionally stop the service, use the following command to see the WinRM configuration:

 winrm enumerate winrm/config/listener

Event ID: 10149

A hint would be nice

I have a server 2012 machine set up with Hyper-V installed.

I would like to have some users have access to use (not modify hardware etc) some vm’s (not all of the vm’s) 
The Users may access their vm’s simultaneously.
Users would ideally be able to stop/start/restart their vm’s.
The users can either be local or obtained from an already-existing Active Directory.
How can i assign the user rights for the vm’s, and what do i need present on the user’s PC’s?

Interface Port-Channel15

Switchport trunk allowed vlan 40,70

Switchport mode trunk

Mlag 15

Server replication, remote site


I am facing a problem, my hyper V server has only one physical network card, and my provider is not able to interconnect my two servers via their solution (Vrack) which requires a physical network card dedicated to this

My configuration:

1 VM of production + 1 VM Domain controller

1VM which will be the replicate of the production VM + 1
testing VM

My need :

Replicate production Virtual Machine + Join
production and testvirtual machinesto the domain.

The replication method (HyperV or Veeam) does not matter to me, as long as it works.


I only have ONE physical card on my HV’s

I do not have access to routers that bridge between my hypervisors and the internet

Do you have any ideas

Is it technically feasible with a single network card?

Thanks !!
