    For pure testing purposes I need to install a Microsoft HYPER-V server as a guest on a VMware ESXi 6.7 (free) hypervisors.
    I created a VM acting as a DC, DNS and DHCP server and another VM acting as an HYPER-V host.
    Everything works fine and I can create and install guest Windows 10 VMs inside the HYPER-V host.
    The problem I can't solve is that during setup the guest Windows 10 VMs get qan IP address from the DHCP server, but after completing the setup no guest VM is able to navigate, and I get a "Destination host unreachable" error while attempting to ping the DC, the default gateway or any other IP address.
    I made several attempts:
    - Enabling "Guest services" inside Integration Services
    - Creating either Generation 1 and Generation 2 guest VMs
    - Assigning static IP addresses to guest VMs
    - Installing "Legacy network interfaces" in the guest VMs
    - Creating a new virtual switch in the HYPER-V server
    Is there any guideline to configure a guest Windows 10 VM so it can navigate from inside a virtual HYPER-V server?
    Regards

    Did you adjust the ESXi portgroup security settings where your Hyper-V is connected to?
