I want to configure virtual switches in Acronis Manager Datacenter? How do I do that?

Resolution

Virtual switch management is implemented in the Virtual Switches tab. You can create, edit and delete virtual switches for all of the managed Hyper-V hosts.

To create a new virtual switch, select a host in the tree and press Create VMSwitch button in the toolbar.

Define name and description (notes) and select the virtual switch connection type:

  • External network - In this type of virtual switch, one of the physical NICs installed on the host is used to connect the VMs to the network.
  • Internal network - In this type of virtual switch, neither of the physical NICs of the host is used for VMs that will be using this connection.
  • Private network - In this type of virtual switch, neither of the physical NICs of the host is used for VMs that will be using this connection as well as the VLANs cannot be set for it.

Note: VLAN traffic identification can be set for external and internal switches.

Press Finish to create the virtual switch.
