For a RDS VDI test environment we decided to use an internal switch on the Hyper-V server. This is not working.
As a consequence, in Hyper-V the external network was not up. This resulted in the following error during the creation of a VDI collection:
Server computer.domain.com either does not have a virtual switch configured or none of the configured virtual switches have an IP address assigned
This is unlikely to be a concern in any type of real life environment because those will have the external NIC connected at all times. However, it may occur when you are in a test environment and are trying to isolate from the production environment.
Conclusion: You have to configure an external switch which is connected to a physical LAN cable. DHCP is enough but of course you can also set a static IP on the NIC.
