Configure Live Migration network in Hyper-V 3.0

After installing the new Hyper-V 3.0 on my brand new Windows 8 Server machine I found new, interesting settings in the Hyper-V Settings. I think the new Virtual Machine Move Configuration setting  which allows to configure the network used for Live  Migration, makes life easier.

Now it is possible to define an IP address, or an IP address range for Live Migration by just adding the appropriate IPs.

This is not brand new, it is possible in Hyper-V 2.0, by configuring the settings of a VM in the Cluster Manager ( this also effects the host globally, although it is set on a VM), but I think it’s a bit confusing, and complicated.
