Hyper-V. New Linux Integration Services 3.2

December 3, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

This release includes the following features:

  • Synthetic Mouse Support: Finnaly ! The virtualized mouse device is no longer bound to the VMConnect window, and can now be used with a RDP session, which means that you no longer need to install a separate package to get integrated mouse support, and will not have to worry about the mouse being captured by the virtual machine.
  • Merged Device Drivers: We now present a single device driver for both IDE and SCSI devices (hv_storvsc).
  • Windows 8 Fix: The synthetic network device (hv_netvsc) can now be used with a Windows 8 host, eliminating the hang on boot that was previously seen.
  •  SCVMM Fix: This release fixes the issue as described inKB2586286.
  •  Improved Setup Experience: Users now only need to run install.sh (as root) to automatically detect the correct architecture and install the appropriate drivers

In addition, :

  • The driver applied to guest virtual machines running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.1 (architecture x 86 and x 64) and CentOS 6.0 (architecture x 86 and x 64). For earlier version should be used components integration version 2.1
  • In fact, it’s modified drivers in the Linux kernel 3.2, but can work with the Linux kernel 2.6.32, shipped with Red Hat and CentOS

BIG NOTE: Microsoft is working with the sponsors of the Linux distros and in the future a list of officially supported distributions will be expanded.

    Thanks Alessandro,

    Served me well, as I had problem of recognizing a 2TB disk with the previous version 3.1.

    Greetings from PERU.

    We already have LIC 3.1 running on our RHEL 6.1 guests and therefore have the reported VMM crash problem that is fixed by 3.2. What I can’t find out is whether we should uninstall 3.1 and then install 3.2, or whether we can simply install 3.2 over the top.
    Anybody tried this?

    Hola Alesandro

    tengo estos drivers instalados:

    [root@mail ~]# rpm -qa | grep hyper

    pero después de 2 meses en producción tengo esta inestabilidad sobre el VM me sale este error:

    sd 0:0:0:0: rejecting I/O to offline device
    sd 0:0:0:0: rejecting I/O to offline device

    Espero tus recomendacion y muchas gracias por tus aportes.
