    Has anybody deployed the Aruba AOS-Switch on Hyper-V?

    it won't obtain ip on both the default vlan, first interface as well as the managmenet interface.

    Please share if there are any guides on how to deploy it.

    There is a separate community for the simulator:


    Your problem is perhaps due to security restrictions on your virtual switch which doesn't allow the change/forging of MAC addresses. 

    Did you try to enable "Enable MAC address spoofing" in the VMs Network Adapter's Advanced Feature Tab?

    Edit: I just checked the Release Notes of the simulator ... Hyper-V is not supported. Maybe you want to consider using GNS3 for this which is a great simulator environment which has already a lot of scripts/config integrated. https://gns3.com/software/download
