Deploy DNS Safety on Microsoft Hyper-V

This article will show you how to deploy the virtual machine of DNS Safety in Microsoft Hyper-V.

First, we need to download the virtual machine ZIP archive and unpack it into some folder on the machine where your Hyper-V server runs, for example into disk C:. The archive should contain three folders as shown on the following output.


 Directory of C:\dnssafety

Open Hyper-V Manager snap-in and click on Import Virtual Machine menu.

Select the folder where you have unpacked the ZIP archive and click Next button.

The login screen of the virtual machine shows the IP address that it acquired from your DHCP server ( in our case). You can then start your browser and connect to Admin UI on port 8000 ( in our case).
