M5 - Lesson 2: Installing Hyper-V
Prerequisites and requirements
to verify that hardware requirements are met for Hyper-V
Ensure that there are enough physical processor cores to support the virtual machines you plan to run. Must be a 64-bit processor with second-level address translation (SLAT)
A minimum of 4 gigabytes (GB) of memory. The minimum 4 GB of memory is for the Hyper-V host operating system. You also must have memory for the virtual machines.
Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) enabled
Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) enabled (Intel XD bit, AMD NX bit)
Ensure that you have enough storage for the virtual hard disks used by your virtual machines.
Ensure that there is enough network capacity in the Hyper-V host to allocate to the virtual machines. In some cases, you might need to allocate network adapters in the host for different purposes.
Enables a Hyper-V guest VM to be a Hyper-V host
Useful for development and test servers
At least 4GB of static memory
MAC address spoofing enabled
VM Configuration v8.0
Virtualization Based Security
Hot add Static Memory
Save or Restore state
