We wonder how to add a SERIAL PORT (COM2) into a guest HPVM Windows 7 64 bits in a xen server 6.5 bare metal hypervisor.
We have some clients connecting through RDP v8.1 (from Win7-64 to Win7-64) with two ore more physical SERIAL PORT.
We want to bypass the physical Port Splitter based solution because of our virtual server environment could not receive any physical peripheral.
Note that our host have NO physical serial port and we ask how/if XenServer 6.5 is able to add some kind of serial device to attache with any of ready-to-run virtual serial port driver.
Note that commercial tools do the magic.
We have found a quick-n-dirty solution based on a port multiplier software wich is creating a virtual port, map it to a ip:port. Killing the process just after the port creation let us call Terminal Server and connect remote and local SERIAL PORT.
Guess that if we reboot the VM, SERIAL PORT is away.
How to declare a new SERIAL PORT with no IRQ free ?
We do not agree about the focus. Is it a Hypervisor issue or a Windows VM issue ?
