A logical switch contains the configuration information that controls the behavior of virtual switches across hosts in your data center. In this wizard, you define the extensions and port profiles for the logical switch, and also create classifications that contain the native port profile and a port profile for each extension.



Once the extensions, port profiles, and classifications are defined for a logical switch, then Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) will ensure that:

- The defined configuration is available on every host that uses the logical switch. \

- The hosts, virtual switches, and virtual machines remain in compliance with their associated logical switch.



More information about logical switches is available in the Microsoft TechNet Library.



Before you create a logical switch

1. Create your logical networks and define the network sites that compose the logical network.

2. If you are using Hyper-V extensible virtual switch extensions, install the providers for VMM and add their virtual switch extension managers.

3. If you are not using a forwarding extension, create native port profiles for uplink adapters that will be used to define the connectivity and behavior of the physical adapters that are connected to the logical switch.

4. Create native port profiles for virtual adapters that will be used to define the port settings for the native Hyper-V virtual switch.
