Server 2016: Networking Your Virtual Machine (Text)

We're going to get started with how the VM interacts with the host in various forms.

Today's Glossary
Guarded Fabric protect a VM from a compromised host.
Nesting is a Hyper-V inside of a Hyper-V Virtual Machine
TPM (Trusted Platform Module) Chip stores authentication artifacts (See Secure Boot and UEFI)

Secure Boot stops authorized code from running (See UEFI)

UEFI (Finally) - Unified Extensible Firmware (S2016 uses 2.3.1 Errata C) - digitally signed and validated bootloader



bootmgfw.efi




Virtual :  Net Adaptor
               Switch

External VS (Virtual Switch)
* Connects to a wired  physical network through a physical adaptor.

Internal
VM (Virtual Machine) Network only with host that has a virtual switch. It's the communication path between the host and VM (What I use on VMware.

Private 
Connected to network, only used by virtual machines using host with a virtual switch.
Host =/= Virtual Machine networking.

Basics of Securing Your Hyper-V
Limit host use.
Update soft/hardware
Be mindful of remote management
Check permissions.

Server Consolidation is an inventory of Linux and Windows Servers

Stateless: After initial provisioning, no unique information is written to the HD, but can be to a Database.

Stateful writes to both an HD and outside storage.

When planning a server setup, consider the Host the Virtual Server will reside on.

DEPLOYMENT, IMAGE SERVICING, MANAGEMENT.

Write to offline image of a Wim or VHD File
 ---> CMD
1. /get-imageinfo
2. mount image (dism mount-wim /wimfile:<file> index:<index> /mountdir:<mountdir>
3. List all features
4. Enable Features

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
