Do SYS allow you to purchase an extra NIC?

Setup the IP manual in the CentOS VM. You will need to set a manual route anyways. I can only guess that your server support company doesn't know anything about DHCP configuration and OVH Fail-over IP.

In regards to setting up DHCP on a Windows machine, is there anything that I would need to configure differently when using these settings? (When first installing DHCP)

If you only have a few virtual machines you could just assign the IP addresses manually as per the guide at

Thought so, wasn't on their website, I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V, I want to run CentOS 5 (Stupid I know) on VM's. I do plan on having two separate servers, one for Linux and another for Windows, but in the meantime I'll have to keep it the way it is. I want to allow my VM's to connect to the internet, and to do this I would assume I'd need to configure DHCP, I have been advised I'd need another NIC card for this, I'm using the core (command line) so no gui,

Thank you for the reply

No they won't let you buy another one.

What distro are you using? It's possible you can achieve what you want without an extra physical NIC.

So I'm unable to buy another one? I was told my a server support company that I would need to in order to setup DHCP

No, the configurations are fixed, which is one of the ways they keep prices so low.

Wondering if it's possible to purchase an extra NIC, as I've been advised to in order to setup a DHCP Server for my virtual machines, emailed support but I thought I'd get a quicker response here
