Hello Chandra,

Yes, it is possible to use a single interface for both Management and VM Communication. You can do that from the Hyper-V Manager > Virtual Switch Manager. You can either create a new external vswitch and make sure you check the optionAllow management operating system to share this network adapte or just check that option on an already existing external vswitch.

Alternatively, you can just create a new external vswitch from scratch:

Get-NetAdapter | fl InterfaceDescription
New-VMSwitch -Name vswitch_name -SwitchType External -AllowManagementOS $true -NetAdapterName "your_NIC_interface_description"

Best regards,

Claudiu Belu
