Hi, on this post we are going to create our first “linked clone” and I’m going to show you how to add a new Network adapter to this new machine.
Well, we are going to start cloning our base machine, in order to do that, follow the next steps: Right click on your virtual machine -> Manage -> Clone …
Now you are going to get the next windows.
Name of the new virtual machine
At the end we are going to get the next window.
Now we have our first virtual machine almost ready to run, but we are going to need add an extra network adapter to this new virtual machine.
This adapter will be used to create a private network between all our virtual machines.
So, this virtual machine will have two networks adapters:
* NAT: Used to connect our domain controller to internet
* Host-Only: Used to create a virtual network with all our virtual machines.
Select your domain controller machine and do a click on “Edit virtual machines settings”.
On the next screen you are going to need do click on the button “Add”.
Add Hardware Wizard.
By default, the new adapter name is “Network Adapter 2” and is added as “NAT” adapter, we need select our new network adapter and change the type to “Host-Only”, and then click in “Ok” to save the changes.
Before and after
That’s all for this time, on the next post we are going to configure our network adapters and install Active Directory.
Thank you for read until the end.
