Based on the blog post by Damian Flynn and Nigel Cain I tried the following:
- Created the logical network "Lab" with "Allow new VM Networks created on this logical network to use virtualization" and the network site "Lab_0" and subnet 192.168.0.0/24
- Created an IP Pool for the Logical Network (I thought IP Pools were optional?)
- Created the VM Network Lab 00 with Isolation, VM Subnet 192.168.0.0/24 and no gateway.
- Tried to associate the NIC of a VM with the newly created switch.
After this, I get an error saying "VMM Could not find any virtual switch on host that can connect to the VM Network"
So then I tried creating a virtual switch, called LABSWITCH, try to associate the virtual switch with the host, get a warning that "VMM Cannot use LABSWITCH to create a virtual switch as there are no uplink port profile sets present on this logical switch".
Onwards we go, and I created a native port profile, associated it with LABSWITCH, try adding the virtual switch with the host. It works, and I try to connect the VM to the network, but now Lab 00 is gone.
Now I'm lost. Am I even on the right track?
