Create Linux VPS on Windows (Hyper-V) Dedicated Server


New member
Hi there,

I'm currently struggling with creating a VPS on a Dedicated server.

I've purchased quite a high spec Dedicated server which is running Windows 2019 with Hyper-V installed and I'm looking at installing Ubuntu 16.04 and running it as a VPS off of the Dedicated server so I can allow my friends to make use of the server. I've purchased a failover IP address and I've attached it to the main Dedicated server but I'm a bit confused on how I am suppose to tell Hyper-V to use the additional IP only in that one VM box.

Please feel free to burn me for my stupidity but I could really do with some advice - thank you in advance.

Kind regards,
