Here comes the inevitable /facepalm I should've seen coming as soon as I opened this thread. What I had been doing the whole time was joining my physical NIC to the logical switch...but I wasn't creating a virtual NIC to connect to the newly created vSwitch. So the host didn't have anything to use to connect to the network and as such would go silent on ...

I ended up using a different ISO for server 2008r. Both downloads of the ISO en_windows_server_2008_r2_standard_enterprise_datacenter_and_web_with_sp1_debug_checked_build_x64_dvd.iso from the MSDN site must have been corrupted or incompatible with Hyper-V for some reason. I switched to using en_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_x64_dvd.iso and this version ...

Use Powershell to Remove Network Boot Devices from the Boot Order You can use PowerShell to strip the Network BootTypes from the VMs boot order. Extract the Current Boot Order Using Powershell you can use this command to extract the current boot order: $old_boot_order = Get-VMFirmware -VMName testvm -ComputerName MyHyperVHost ` | ...

virt-v2v doesn't cover hyper-v. What you need is virt-p2v and treat the original hyper-v based VM as a physical machine.

Upload it as a disk, attach to a VM and it runs. It'll be expecting a domain controller so you should prepare for that (either by having one in Azure or connecting back to the on-premises one). Sysprep is required if you want to upload it as an image, to spawn other VMs. As a best practice, it's better to follow this route. Check the official documentation ...

Yes, that is possible. You just need to use a tool like virt-v2v to make the image conversion. Additionally, if you google "convert hyper-v to rhel kvm" you'll find many tutorials.

Regarding your concerns about PXE The implementation of PXE in a corporate environment may raise concerns about security. This document shows why these concerns are mostly unfounded. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21247020

I have two Windows 2012 R2 servers running hyper-v with one also running RDS. Both servers are DC's. I have no problem with RDS with vdi. I have two collections. One for Win 7 the other Win 8. I have also setup a separate server also with Windows 2012 R2 for RDWEB to publish applications. Did you receive any errors when sysprepping the machine? I initially ...

The Hyper-V service on Server 2012/2012 R2 has no need of the GUI, and it is easily managed from a nearby 8.1 workstation with RSAT, PowerShell or whatever. (Indeed, the Hyper-V Server product is so stripped down it doesn't include the GUI at all, nor many other things.)

To figure out if Server Core (or pretty much any other software) is right for you, you must answer the following questions in the affirmative: Will all the required roles run correctly on Server Core? (Some programs require the GUI to run/properly administer.) Does my team understand how to properly administer Server Core, or are willing to learn in an ...

This Microsoft support article has the answer. You need to set the Hyper-V services to depend upon the iSCSI services if they are not already. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/193888 You should also make sure that your iSCSI services are not set to use Automatic (Delayed startup) as discussed at: ...

It's also possible for Windows to lock a VHD file. I ran into this by double-clicking on a VHD, which causes recent version of Windows to open it up like a folder. However, it appears that the system then holds a lock on the file, which prevents Hyper-V from using it to start a VM. Rebooting fixed that problem.

Time is short for this project, so I made the decision to delete my recovery points and try again. I then discovered DPM still didn't recognize the new data. Then I performed the following two steps: - On the Agents page, refreshed both nodes of my cluster - Within the "Modify Protect Group wizard" at the resource selection page, I clicked "Clear Cache" ...

There is a software-based OpenGL implementation, but it's very slow at best and quite buggy. I think your question is just a mite too general. Short answer: no, there is no software available that will emulate graphics card hardware that is Aero compatible (and Direct3D etc). Building on what @Rex said, the issue is likely to be the client itself ...

Hyper-V Server has all of the features needed to run a VM cluster. With that said, Hyper-V Server is essentially a Server Core installation, with all the other server roles stripped out. Since you're getting Datacenter licenses anyway, you can just install Server Core instead. Both are functionally identical (except that you have the option of installing ...

The Intel 4600 HD graphics chip is extremely underpowered for this application. You need a graphics card specifically designed for remote desktop workloads that can render multiple desktops at once if you are using RemoteFX. The nVidia GRID and ATI FirePro are such cards.

This is the right way to do it. You bind your NIC to a Hyper-V Virtual Switch, and then in the hardware config for the VM you set the VLAN to use. You don't want or need VLAN tagging enabled inside the guest VM.


1

Your virtual NIC is entirely missing. Since you said you compiled your own kernel, I think it most likely that you forgot to include the Hyper-V paravirtual drivers. You're using Hyper-V, not KVM, so those options for KVM and Xen are irrelevant. Specifically, you are looking for CONFIG_HYPERV_NET for the Hyper-V virtual network interface. You may also want ...

make -j (with no argument to -j) does not have an upper limit to the number of commands which are started. It parallelizes as much as possible, not just up to the number of cores (as the question sort of suggests). make -j 12 (or maybe less than 12 depending on how memory hungry each process is) is probably a more sane command in your situation. From man 1 ...

256k+ - SQL Server, at least enterprise, tries to do IO in this size and allocate clusters (64kb, 8 pages of 8kb) in groups of 4 to optimize IO. So, cluster size should be multiple of 256kb.

First Hyper-V Switches do not have a VLAN ID. Hyper-V switches belong to all VLANs. You assign a VLAN to the virtual adapters with VMs and the virtual adapters created for management. For the sake of simplicity you should generally stick with a single Virtual Switch unless you really need to segregate traffic. So basically you should setup your External ...

I'm simply wondering if a Server 2012 Hyper-V VM can be sent over the network at startup through PXE boot. No, it cannot. For that matter, you can't do this with any other virtualization technology either. You simply can't "stream" an operating system over a network cable in the way you seem to be envisioning. can anyone suggest another method of ...

For a Hyper-V guest, the VMM console shows CPU Average as the “%Guest Run Time” counter of “Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor(_Total)” counter set. This also relates to any limit in percent set on the Processor setting under settings for the Hyper-V guest. E.g. If you have a guest with a 4 core CPU and 50% VM limit and the utilization as shown from ...

It turns out that you cannot run RDS Virtualization Host role on an domain controller. I understand the reason and would never do this in a production environment, this was a lab setup. I am answering this for anyone in future. I think there should be some kind of alert or notation somewhere minimum, but preferably it should not allow you to select the ...
