Network and Performance Settings

Updated: September 25, 2009

Applies To: Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization

A newer version of the Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) documentation library is now available. To view the most recent MED-V documentation library, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=167079.

Administrators can define the network settings for each MED-V workspace.

All network settings are configured in the Policy module, on the Network tab.

To apply network settings to a MED-V workspace

  1. Click the MED-V workspace to configure.

  2. In the Network pane, configure the settings as described in the following table.

  3. On the Policy menu, select Commit.

MED-V Workspace Network Properties

Property Description

TCP/IP Properties

  • Use host's IP address (NAT)—The workspace will use NAT to share the host's IP for outgoing traffic.

  • Use different IP address than host (Bridge)—The MED-V workspace will have its own network address, usually obtained via DHCP.

Select the Map multiple adapters into Workspace check box when the host computer has multiple adapters. It is recommended to use this configuration when the host moves between different networks using different adapters.

DNS Server

  • Don't change—DNS settings that are set within the MED-V workspace virtual machine will not be changed.

  • Use Host's DNS address—MED-V workspace DNS settings will be synchronized to match the host's settings. The DNS synchronization is dynamic. It is synchronized periodically with the host so that if it is changed on the host, it will change dynamically in the MED-V workspace.

  • Use specific DNS addresses—The MED-V workspace will use a specific DNS, as specified.

    In the Primary and Secondary fields, enter the primary and secondary DNS addresses.

    Select the Append Host's DNS addresses check box to append the host to the configured DNS addresses.

Assign DNS Suffixes

  • Assign the following suffixes—Select this check box to assign specific DNS suffixes; in the box, enter a suffix or multiple suffixes separated by commas.

  • Append host suffixes—Select this check box to append the host suffixes to the DNS address.

The following performance setting can be defined for each MED-V workspace:

  • VM memory allocation

Performance settings are configured in the Policy module, on the Performance tab.

To apply performance settings to a MED-V workspace

  1. Click the MED-V workspace to configure.

  2. Configure the settings as described in the following table.

  3. On the Policy menu, select Commit.

Performance Settings Properties

Property Description

Adjust VM memory, based on amount of the Host machine's physical memory

Select this check box, and configure the following virtual machine properties in the table:

  • Host Memory—Define the common host RAM configuration in your organization based on any numbers of groups to configure.

  • VM Memory—Enter the amount of host memory to allocate to the virtual machine.
