All right, so everyone knows what this play button means. We're going to jump into hyper V, manage. I'm gonna show you around it. We're gonna cover things like how to connect to hyper V hosts. So actually, getting onto the server and adding and removing service, we're gonna look through the hyper V settings. We're gonna create an empty bhd for you to actually see how that process works.
We're gonna look a little bit into Virtual Sands, which is a storage area network
which basically looks into how to get that fiber channels house get five channels working on a virtual environment.
We're not gonna go massively into that because it is more than the scope of what I would consider to be hyper V fundamentals course. But it's just to give you an idea of where to go, where it is, what the settings allow you to do
on. Then we're gonna go and manipulate. The service is for hyper V manager as well. So let's jump across, shall we? So I'm gonna open up my hyper V manager. There we go. So this is the screen you'll have when you first go to a hyper V manager, depending on whether you've installed wth Hee ho ste. Sorry, the server hyper V
the role if it's on a server,
if you've installed it locally and you're on the machine locally, the local server will appear on the left menu.
if you are just basically connecting to the server from another machine, you'll have this screen here which basically means that it doesn't have a current type of the environment. What you would do nice and simple to connect to host. Just right. Click the hyper V manager in the top right on top. Right now, it doesn't work. Top right top right is here.
So this menu will always married mirror what you get when you right click on something on the left.
But yet so on the right will get the menu. But you can also right click on the left menu here and choose connected server. You get this box so it allows you to choose the local computer, which is what we're gonna be using. But if you if you're connecting remotely to another computer on the network, you would either type the name of the computer here with the I p address
or you can click, browse and use the active directory environment too.
Find that machine. So if I click browse here, you'll find a little search box. I'm sure if you worked in a business environment, some of you will have seen this before on you can click advanced as well to do a full search of the network where you need to.
So we're going to counter this. I'm just gonna choose local computer on. I'm gonna click. OK, so it's gonna look on the local machine and there's my machine Deadpool. Now, if you've been watching, you know I'm crazy about Marvel. Deadpool is the name of my server that I'm running this on now on. My network here is called Shield because you no way
I'm a geek. What can I say? Give up. Okay, So
what we're gonna be looking from from here is we're gonna be looking at the hyper V service settings off the actual deadpool server that we have on screen here. So on the right hand side, I'm gonna click left click hyper V service settings on. We're going to see those for Deadpool here.
Now you can see it's also automatically default to a few options.
These are based on previous installations I have on the service of the server keeps its settings, even if you remove it from your manager s o what I've done. As you can see, I have an e drive, which is my two terabyte mechanical disc.
I told it to store everything in virtual machines in the folder Virtual Machines. So here you can specify the default folder to store the Bhd the virtual hard disk,
and you can also right underneath it, specify where the default location is to start. The actual VM conflict files
the M's. When I say Conflict falls, V. EMS are literally
that tells the system how to boot.
That's all a virtual machine is. It's just a configuration script or set of variables in a file, and then it goes often finds the equivalent virtual hard disk if there are any.
That's how virtual machines work so that the conflict files are tiny. The big one is the virtual hard disks themselves. Now I've pointed both the same folder. What it will do is it will automatically default and put the name of the server that I create. Sorry, not the server. The name off the machine I create as another folder with envy, EMS or virtual machines.
And then it'll put the files inside that folder,
so that's kind of how it works.
