I am in the process of testing Veeam 8 Replication for our Hyper-V 2012 R2 Cluster Built using SCVMM 2012 R2.
Networking for Hyper-V uses a Logical Switch to converge the network fabric for Management, CSV, LiveMigration and VM networks, then we isolate the networks using logical networks with Vlans and QOS is set on the VM network adapter on each VM using VMM E.g: low, medium, High etc.
The issue I am having is that when I select "Separate virtual network (enable network mapping)" this only gives me very simple changes to the Source and Target network and enables a standard Switch in the VM rather than the Logical Switch, Connect to VM network, Enable VLAN and Logical switch Classification. E.G low,Medium,High.
I have tried to get around this by removing the checkbox from "Separate virtual network (enable network mapping)" and then sxripting updating the Replica networks which works fine in a planned failover, but when we do Failover now the VM seems to remove the network changes.
Does anyone know a way around this issue, or if there is a way to specify the Logical switch settings on the replica VM during the creation of the VM?
