Using VLANs in Hyper-V virtual machines has always been a bit messy with HP's teaming sofware, aka HP Network Configuration Utility for Windows Server 2008 R2. Until now a lot of steps had to be taken:

  1. Prepare trunk/channel between Hyper-V host and core network switch(es) and add all possible VLANs
  2. Create NIC Team with HP NCU
  3. Create VLAN's on the NIC Team
  4. In Network Connections additional NICs are created which each represent one VLAN
  5. Create Hyper-V Virtual Network connected to an external network adapter representing a specific VLAN and remove tick in front of Allow management operating system to share this network adapter because we don't want to see even more NIC's under Network Connections
  6. Add VLAN id to virtual network adapter in VM, start machine and add an IP address to virtual network adapter that belongs to that VLAN
