Wanted – MacBook Pro 15″ 2017

Hi

I’d consider parting with mine for a reasonable offer – it was bought in January 2017 from John Lewis, but I don’t have the original slip as I bought it secondhand.
The spec is:
512gb SSD,16gb RAM, 2.7ghz i7, Radeon Pro 455 graphics. It’s really lovely and mint condition.

Couple of notes:
I recommend you see the machine in person if you’re interested. I’m in London too, so it’s easy to arrange.

Even though it was bought in 2017, technically it’s a 2016 spec. Condition is excellent – last week the keyboard was replaced by Apple (with the new MacBook Pros the keyboard, touchpad, touchbar and battery are one unit, so all were replaced at once, and the battery cycle is 4!) due to a sticking key, and it’s working like a dream.

7 Powerful Scripts for Practical Hyper-V Network Configurations

I firmly believe in empowerment. I feel that I should supply you with knowledge, provide you with how-tos, share insights and experiences, and release you into the world to make your own decisions. However, I came to that approach by standing at the front of a classroom. During class, we’d almost invariably walk through exercises. Since this is a blog and not a classroom, I do things differently. We don’t have common hardware in a controlled environment, so I typically forgo the exercises bit. As a result, that leaves a lot of my readers at the edge of a cliff with no bridge to carry them from theory to practice. And, of course, there are those of you that would love to spend time reading about concepts but just really need to get something done right now. If you’re stopped at Hyper-V networking, this is the article for you.

Script Inventory

These scripts are included in this article:

Basic Usage

I’m going to show each item as a stand-alone script. First, you’ll locate the one that best aligns with what you’re trying to accomplish. You’ll copy/paste that into a .ps1 PowerShell script file on your system. You’ll need to edit the script to provide information about your environment so that it will work for you. I’ll have you set each of those items at the beginning of the script. Then, you’ll just need to execute the script on your host.

Most scripts will have its own “basic usage” heading that explains a bit about how you’d use it without modification.

Enhanced Usage

I could easily compile these into standalone executables that you couldn’t tinker with. Even though I want to give you a fully prepared springboard, I also want you to learn how the system works and what you’re doing to it.

Most scripts will have its own “enhanced usage” heading that gives some ideas how you might exploit or extend it yourself.

Configure networking for a single host with a single adapter

Use this script for a standalone system that only has one physical adapter. It will:

  • Disable VMQ for the physical adapter
  • Create a virtual switch on the adapter
  • Create a virtual network adapter for the management operating system to use
  • Optionally place the management adapter into a VLAN
  • Assign an IP, subnet, and gateway to the management adapter
  • Specify one or two DNS servers

Basic Usage for this Script

You just need to enter the necessary information for these items and execute it.

Advanced Usage for this Script

As-is, this script should be complete for most typical single-adapter systems. You might choose to disable some items. For instance, if you are using this on Windows 10, you might not want to provide a fixed IP address. In that case, just put a # sign at the beginning of lines 42 onward. When the virtual network adapter is created, it will remain in DHCP mode.

Configure a standalone host with 2-4 gigabit adapters for converged networking

Use this script for a standalone host that has between two and four gigabit adapters that you want to use in a converged networking configuration. It will:

  • Create a team on the adapters
  • Disable VMQ for the physical adapters and the teamed adapter
  • Create a virtual switch on the team
  • Create a virtual network adapter for the management operating system to use
  • Optionally place the management adapter into a VLAN
  • Assign an IP, subnet, and gateway to the management adapter
  • Specify one or two DNS servers

Basic Usage for this Script

You just need to enter the necessary information for these items and execute it. Be aware that it will have problems if you already have a team.

Advanced Usage for this Script

This script serves as the base for the remaining scripts on this page. Likewise, you could use it as a base for your own. You could also use any of the items as examples for whatever similar actions you wish to accomplish in your own scripts.

Configure a standalone host with 2-4 10 GbE adapters for converged networking

Use this script for a standalone host that has between two and four 10GbE adapters that you want to use in a converged networking configuration. It will:

  • Create a team on the adapters
  • Create a virtual switch on the team
  • Create a virtual network adapter for the management operating system to use
  • Optionally place the management adapter into a VLAN
  • Assign an IP, subnet, and gateway to the management adapter
  • Specify one or two DNS servers

It won’t take a great deal of sleuthing to discover that this script is identical to the preceding one, except that it does not disable VMQ.

Configure a clustered host with 2-4 gigabit adapters for converged networking

Use this script for a host that has between two and four gigabit adapters that will be a member of a cluster. Like the previous scripts, it will employ a converged networking configuration. The script will:

  • Create a team on the adapters
  • Disable VMQ for the physical adapters and the teamed adapter
  • Create a virtual switch on the team
  • Create virtual network adapters for the management operating system to use for management traffic, cluster communications, and Live Migration
  • Optionally place the virtual adapters into VLANs
  • Assign an IP, subnet, and gateway to the management adapter
  • Assign an IP and subnet mask to the cluster and Live Migration adapters
  • Prevent the cluster and Live Migration adapters from registering in DNS
  • Specify one or two DNS servers

Basic Usage for this Script

You just need to enter the necessary information for these items and execute it. It is essentially the same as the stand-alone multi-gigabit adapter script except that it also adds adapters for cluster communications and Live Migration traffic.

It does not arrange the adapters in an optimal order for Live Migration. The cluster will automatically prioritize the cluster and Live Migration adapters over the management adapter, but it might prioritize the cluster adapter over the Live Migration adapter. Practically, that will have no meaningful effect; these designations are mostly cosmetic. If you’d like to force the issue, you’ll need to do so separately. You could, of course, use Failover Cluster Manager for this. I’ve included a script later in this article that makes the setting change for you. You cannot combine these scripts because the cluster must exist before you can specify the Live Migration adapter order. Also, you only need to specify the order one time, not once per node.

Advanced Usage for this Script

You could do a great number of things with this script. One suggestion would be to add cluster creation/join logic. It would be non-trivial, but you’d be able to combine the Live Migration adapter ordering script.

Configure a clustered host with 2-4 10 GbE adapters for converged networking

This script is identical to the preceding except that it leaves VMQ enabled. It does the following:

  • Create a team on the adapters
  • Create a virtual switch on the team
  • Create virtual network adapters for the management operating system to use for management traffic, cluster communications, and Live Migration
  • Optionally place the virtual adapters into VLANs
  • Assign an IP, subnet, and gateway to the management adapter
  • Assign an IP and subnet mask to the cluster and Live Migration adapters
  • Prevent the cluster and Live Migration adapters from registering in DNS
  • Specify one or two DNS servers

Basic Usage for this Script

These notes are identical to those of the preceding script.

Set preferred order for cluster Live Migration networks

This script aligns with the two preceding scripts to ensure that the cluster chooses the named “Live Migration” adapter first when moving virtual machines between nodes. The “Cluster” virtual adapter will be used second. The management adapter will be used as the final fallback.

Basic Usage for this Script

Use this script after you’ve run one of the above two clustered host scripts and joined them into a cluster.

Advanced Usage for this Script

Modify this to change the order of Live Migration adapters. You must specify all adapters recognized by the cluster. Check the “MigrationExcludeNetworks” registry key that’s in the same location as “MigrationNetworkOrder”.

Exclude cluster networks from Live Migration

This script is intended to be used as an optional adjunct to the preceding script. Since my scripts set up all virtual adapters to be used in Live Migration, the network names used here are fabricated.

Basic Usage for this Script

You’ll need to set the network names to match yours, but otherwise, the script does not need to be altered.

Advanced Usage for this Script

This script will need to be modified in order to be used at all.
