virtual machine settings, select the controller you want to add the disk, select the physical hard disk option in the drop-down list in the Media section under Settings, and click on OK. After that, the disk will be exclusively used by the VM. You can also use PowerShell with the Get-VMScsiController and Add-VMHardDiskDrive commandlets to add a physical disk to a VM, as shown in the next example: Get-VMScsiController –VMName VM01 –Number 0 | Add-VMHardDiskDrive –DiskNumber 1 Creating
Add-VMHardDiskDrive, as shown here: Add-VMHardDiskDrive -VMName NewVM -Path D:\Hyper-V\NewDisk.vhdx To create a new virtual switch, you can use the New-VMSwitch command. The following example creates an external switch and binds it to a network adapter called Wired Ethernet Connection. New-VMSwitch "External Switch" –NetAdapterName "Wired Ethernet Connection" –AllowManagementOS $true To add a network adapter to a VM, use the Add-VMNetworkAdapter command. The next command adds a network
a separate disk for the page file within the VMs, and exclude it from being replicated. The page file causes lots of replication requests, and it can save a huge amount of performance and network utilization for replica servers. How it works...
