Configuring Windows Server 2012+ Hyper-V Virtual Machines for Port Mirroring
Complete the two following tasks to set up port mirroring on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V host.
Important: Before you configure port mirroring on a Windows Server 2012 VM, make sure that the Microsoft packet sniffing tool hotfix is applied.
Configuring the Virtual Machine to Capture Mirrored Traffic
To configure the virtual machine you want to use to capture mirrored traffic
Configuring the Mirror Port
To configure the mirror port
$a = Get-VMSystemSwitchExtensionPortFeature -FeatureId 776e0ba7-94a1-41c8-8f28-951f524251b5
$a.SettingData.MonitorMode = 2
add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature -ExternalPort -SwitchName <virtual_switch_name> -VMSwitchExtensionFeature $a
Important: Be aware that, if you enable promiscuous mode for a physical port, it directs all the traffic received on that port towards the virtual machine destination.
