I realized that in certain weeks after I have converted my desktop server into multiple Intel NUC box to replaced as a farm of Hyper-V servers, I actually needed to purchase more USB-to-Ethernet Adapter converter so that I can connect to various VLAN (Virtual LAN) in my network. I uses different brand all the times because the local computing store do not usually carry the same brands all the time even though the intervals period that I made the purchase is just 2 weeks. It’s weird, I know.
Take a look at the one that I have bought recently.
There are a couples of other brands available but I had affinity with J5Create products because I am currently using their USB-to-DVI converter and it is perfect, I would say.
There are many folks out there who said that it is a best practices to have at least 4 NICs when running Hyper-V for various purposes but since this is just my lab environment, I would definitely add in more, when needed. Since the convenient of just USB converter is so much easier now.
I still remember in the past when I was running my desktop server, what I did was to add in PCI NIC card which I could add to maximum of around 3 (2 x PCI card + 1 on-board LAN).
