Using HYPER-V, Zero Clients keeps on disconnecting

Using HYPER-V, Zero Clients keeps on disconnecting

Our system requires continuous connectivity between the host PC/VM and the zero clients. Since the default configuration for Hyper-V is usually set to Shared, that can cause issues as you've encountered.

In those cases, I would recommend changing the setting of your network card from Shared to Bridged.

Standard Bridged Networking
  1. Start the Hyper-V Manager and click Virtual Switch Manager
  2. Select External and click Create Virtual Switch
  3. Enter Bridged or similar to identify this network as being on your physical network
  4. Select the correct network adapter under External network, this should be an active network card, i.e. one that is connected to your network and your host is using.
    1. If you only have one network card, verify that Allow management operating system to share this network adapter.
    2. If you have multiple network cards, and want to use this card exclusively for VMs, uncheck Allow management operating system to share this network adapter.
  5. Click OK and the new virtual switch will be created.
  6. Verify that you don’t have any ongoing network tasks before clicking yes, as your network connection will likely be disrupted when the virtual switch is created.
  7. This will create a network adapter under Network Connections called vEthernet (name_used), in this case, vEthernet (Bridged)
