      I am building a laptop lab with nested Hyper-V.  I have Windows 10 on my laptop and I am using Hyper-V 2016 Core free for the nested Hyper-V.

      I have a DC and two guest Hyper-V servers which will be a cluster. I have installed a VM on one of the Hyper-V guests and of course I can’t ping to the DC from this machine.

      I have enabled MAC spoofing and created an internal switch. DC and Hyper-V guests have internet access through the internal switch and can ping each other.

      I have googled around and I can’t find any tutorial that explains this part. I want to keep it as simple as I can.

      If you have a VM on a Hyper-V server and it is supposed to communicate to a DC which is above the Hyper-V server, you need External switch, not internal. Internal switch allows only communication of the VMs inside the host. Your DC is not there, its one level up.
