How to Install Hyper-V on Windows Server 2019
Windows Server 2019 offers Hyper-V, a Type 1 hypervisor. Hyper-V is a role that gets
installed on a Windows Server 2019 operating system. If you want to save time, you can
also download and install Windows Hyper-V Server 2019, which is a standalone product
available for download that contains the Windows Hyper-V hypervisor, Windows Server drivers,
and various virtualization components — the same tech that you get from installing the role.
Here, you learn how to install Hyper-V from the role. The lab systems that are used
for this installation are joined to the domain sometestorg.com.
Windows 10 also has a version of Hyper-V available that you can install. It's a feature
that can be enabled, and it will allow you to support virtual machines, virtual networking,
and virtual storage. This is very helpful if you need to be able to run multiple operating
systems in your normal day-to-day activities. This feature is only available if you're
running Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education editions. It is not available on Windows 10
Home edition. The Windows 10 version of Hyper-V does not support advanced functionality like
live migration, Hyper-V Replica, or SR-IOV.
How to install Hyper-V
You need to make some basic configuration decisions during the installation of Hyper-V,
but they can be changed after the installation, so if you change your mind or make a mistake,
Follow these steps to install Hyper-V:
1. From Server Manager, choose Manage | Add Roles and Features.
2. On the Before You Begin screen, click Next.
3. On the Select Installation Type screen, click Next.
4. On the Select Destination Server screen, click Next.
5. On the Select Server Roles screen, select Hyper-V.
6. Click Add Features in the dialog box that pops up, and then click Next.
7. On the Select Features screen, click Next.
8. On the first Hyper-V screen, click Next.
9. On the Create Virtual Switches screen, select the network adapter you want to use for the virtual switch.
As you can see in the figure, you have only one adapter to choose from right now, so select it.
You must select a network adapter for the virtual switch to use. You can change this later.
10. Click Next.
11. On the Virtual Machine Migration screen, select the Allow This Server to Send and Receive
Live Migrations of Virtual Machines on This Server check box and select the Use Credential
Security Support Provider check box.
Live migrations enable you to move a virtual machine from one Hyper-V host server to another Hyper-V
host server with no downtime. CredSSP is the simplest way to set up live migration, but it requires
you to log into the server being migrated, so it isn't the best for automatically moving virtual machines.
To enable live migration of VMs, select the check box to allow them and select CredSSP.
