Step by Step install of CentOS 6.3 on Microsoft Hyper-V Server with Linux Integration Services Version 3.4

Create new VHD w/ Legacy Network Adapter for CentOS 6.3

Download CentOS 6.3-minimal.iso (insert disk & install)

Download LinuxICv34.iso (insert disk)

 mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom
 mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
 cp -rp /mnt/cdrom /opt/linux_ic
 umount /mnt/cdrom
 cd /opt/linux_ic/RHEL63
 ./install.sh

Once the install is done, shutdown the VPS, note the mac address and then remove the legacy adapter.

Add a standard network adapter with static mac previously noted. apply and restart the VPS

Update your network settings via vi

 vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

use "i" to insert text, (esc) to exit and ":wq" to write your changes.

It should look something like this:

 DEVICE="eth0"

 BOOTPROTO=none

 ONBOOT="yes"

 TYPE="Ethernet"

 HWADDR=(MAC ADDRESS, This should match what is configured in Hyper-V)

 IPADDR=(YOUR SERVER IP)

 GATEWAY=(YOUR DEFAULT GATEWAY)

 DNS1=(PRIMARY DNS SERVER IP)

 DNS2=(SECONDARY DNS SERVER IP)

 Networking=yes

If your system is still not online for static IP do this:

 ifconfig eth0 (IP) netmask (MASK) up

 service network restart
