If you want only to communicate them with each other, you don't need anything else, just put them into same VLAN. If you want to use routing and route them outside to the internet, I recommend to use RRAS role on the Hyper-V host. Specially, if you get into AD networking, DHCP, DNS, and NAT, you need RRAS server.
If I have multiple VMs in my Hyper-V environment , each with a different IP Address in a different subnet, do I need additional routing software to get them all communicating?
Do they all need their own virtual switch?
Reading conflicting information about this....some articles mention needing one vswitch regardless of VM IPs, others say multiple switches. And I cant get a definitive on routing...
I would like to check if the reply could be of help? If yes, please help accept answer, so that others meet a similar issue can find useful information quickly. If you have any other concerns or questions, please feel free to feedback.
