Hyper-V Virtual Machine doesn't have Network Interface inside control panel

Federico Coppola 1,106 Reputation points

I have a Windows Server VM on my Hyper-V server.
Hyper-V server is running Windows Server 2022 Standard, however this VM is running Windows 2016 Standard.

This virtual machine has got network interface configured.


I started this imported VM, but I am not seeing any network interface inside control panel, in fact this VM is not connected to network!

How can I solve?

    Might try to
    Stand up a new one for testing
    Delete, reboot, re-add the adapter, scan for hardware changes.

    I created a new NIC without success.

    After some checks, I noticed a not defined device inside "Device Manager", so I tried to deploy it using driver already installed option.

    This device was the network card, now it is again reachable via LAN network.

    Thanks a lot
