The VM-Series firewall can now be deployed on Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 (standalone edition) and on Windows Server 2012 R2 (standard and datacenter editions) with the Hyper-V role that lets you create and manage virtual machines. You can deploy the firewall using the Hyper-V Manager (guided user interface) or Windows PowerShell (command line interface).
The VM-Series firewall on Hyper-V supports the following:
Tap, virtual wire, Layer 2, and Layer 3 interface deployments. See Supported Deployments on Hyper-V. All capacity model licenses—VM-100, VM-200, VM-300, and VM-1000-HV. Active/active and active/passive high availability (HA) configurations.
The VM-Series firewall on Hyper-V is bundled with the Linux Integration Services package to improve integration between the host and the virtual machine. This bundle allows you to:
Use the Hyper-V Manager to view the IP address assigned to the management interface on the firewall. Synchronize time and heartbeat between the host and the firewall to ensure that firewall is operating properly. Gracefully shutdown the firewall from the Hyper-V Manager.
