NAT virtual switch on OS 2016 - hyperv

Hi guys.

We have noticed that on HYPERV on OS 2016 there is a nat virtual switch.

This is probably something new in OS 2016 hyper-v?

Deleting it throws an error.

Hi,

Based on my experience, keeping the virtual switch would not cause any issues.

The deleting may fail if you do not have administrative rights, or there are NAT configuration related to the virtual switch.

  1. Ensure you are using an administrator account.

  2. Run the following command in powershell to delete NAT configurations.

Get-NetNat | Remove-NetNat

Best Regards,
