  • RDP issues via EC2

    I’m using Hyper-V to build a VM on my machine so that I can RDP in. I used the API to export the VHDX to VHD and upload it to AWS. The problem is that I have no security keypair to access the newly created EC2. To solve this, I created a private AMI and re-instantiated a new EC2, setting the...

  • Backing up VHD files on Hyper-V 2008 (non clustered)

    I've talked to some people around my department and they have said you can back up VHD files on Hyper-V 2008 (non clustered) and back them up while the guest is live and running (with PowerShell scripts). Can anyone give me more information on this? What kind of back up? Is it an export? Thanks for...

  • Trying to connect two Hyper-V VMs through serial port

    I'm trying to connect two different Hyper-V VMs through a serial port. Since Hyper-V exposes the port as a "named pipe" to the host system / implements the sever end of the pipe, I need a named-pipe client to connect to both VMs.When I tried to write an application, all the data was lost. What...

  • Should we use Hyper-V snapshot for backup on SQL Server 2008

    So we have SQL Server 2008 in Hyper-V as a supported configuration. It's been performing well since we're using fixed or pass-through disks (which has increased our processor/memory settings). My big question is can we use snapshots as a reliable backup mechanism? Should we use the tried and...

  • Hyper-V for laptop use?

    Let me start by saying that I’m new to virtualization. I’m running Windows 8 on my laptop, but would like to virtualize Ubuntu so that I can boot it for running code, testing Linux programs, etc. I tried this with Virtual PC 2007 (I allocated 1G of RAM for Ubuntu), and it was very slow. I’ve...

  • Scripting control processes in Hyper-V VM

    I want to script a Hyper-V VM as part of a build process so that it’ll be able to launch processes specific command-lines. I’ve looked through this library, but all the operations seem to be at VM controller level instead of controlling the OS within the VM.

  • Path to config file in Hyper-V?

    Where does Hyper-V store the path to the config file for a given virtual machine? I thought it would be in the "rootvirtualization" name space, but it’s not there. What WMI object or field stores the path?

    I’m trying to install VMplayer on Windows Server 2008 R2 with Microsoft Hyper V, but I get the following error message: This product may not be installed as Microsoft Hyper V installed. Is it impossible to add VMplayer when Hyper V is in use? Are there workarounds?

  • Importing a Windows Server 2008 into Hyper-V VM

    Is it possible to import a Windows Server 2008 server as a Hyper-V Virtual Server to another Windows Server 2008 instance? I’d like to do this as cheaply as possible. Is there some other workaround (i.e. import the image into VMWare first and then convert to Hyper-V)?

  • Hyper-V is destroying our WiFi internet connection

    This is the first time our company is using Hyper-V (on Windows 8). When we created a new virtual network switch, which was external, it somehow bridges the VMs network adapter with the WiFi. This is killing the WiFi's internet connection. What are we doing wrong?
