Keith Mange released a cool tool called NVSPBind (Network Virtual Service Provider Bind), which gives users easier, granular control over network items they want enabled for their physical NICs and helps fills a gap in troubleshooting, optimising and hardening networking configurations on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Microsoft Hyper-V Server. In a full installation of Windows, it is possible to enable or disable protocols from a network adapter using the network connections applet in the control panel (aka ncpl.cpl) by simply checking or unchecking protocols as necessary. NVSPBind also has the ability to enable bindings, bind or unbind the Hyper-V network switch protocol from a NIC and repair bindings on a NIC. Download. And NVSPscrub is a tool for removing Hyper-V Virtual Networking Configuration from the parent partition. It is especially useful in Server Core environments when the Hyper-V UI may not be available, and if you’ve fiddled with NVSPbind, and things have taken a turn for the worse!
