Hey TLG and Windows Server 2012 R2 fans,

My colleagues Tim Quinn and Bill Mathers have updated and published the Test Lab Guide: Windows Server 2012 R2 Base Configuration, which tells you how to set up the Corpnet and Internet subnets with computers running Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1. The previous version of this document was for the Preview versions of these operating systems.

Get your hands on the latest versions of Windows and explore additional features with additional Test Lab Guides for Windows Server 2012 R2 in the TechNet Library.

For more information about TLGs, see Test Lab Guides.

  • In configuring Edge1 if you use the powershell commands for configuring the NICs you will get errors unless you rename the Network Interfaces to CORPNET and INTERNET accordingly.

    You can add two lines into the powershell commands to do this for you so you do not have to do it manually.

    rename-netadapter –name “Ethernet” Corpnet
    rename-netadapter –name “Ethernet 2” Internet

  • I am setting up DHCP the INET1 server in Hyper-V. Why are we using for default gateway? My true default gateway here at home is Is their a way around this?
