How to fix non compliant NICs with no logical network connectivity in VMM

Hi everybody,

today again a blogpost out of my heading “I need to remind my self because I love to forget this”.

I want to show you how you need to configure Network Adapters which are not used in a virtual switch for Hyper-V. That network adapters could be used for example with Storage like iSCSI, SMB3 or other things.

At first you will get a warning from Virtual Machine Manager that your host is not compliant.

Like you see in my example below.

Now there are two options to get the NICs compliant. The first way, which we don’t want to use with Storage Adapters is, to move them into a virtual switch.

The second one, which I prefer when working with storage adapter, is ti define the connection within the hardware profile of the server. For that you go into the properties of your Hyper-V Hosts in VMM and select hardware. Scroll down until you reached the network adapter you want to configure. Now you should see the logical network connectivity.

There you check the logical networks, your host has connection with and press ok.

So that’s all. Now your Networkadapter is shown as compliant in VMM.
