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

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

1. /get-imageinfo
2. mount image (dism mount-wim /wimfile:<file> index:<index> /mountdir:<mountdir>
3. List all features

So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
