  1. In Hyper-V Configuration 8.3. When using the Ubuntu 18.04.1 Quick Create install, there needs to be an option to specify HDD size!

    I ran out of disk space on my Ubuntu setup because Hyper-V only provided it a 11GB storage.

    You can go back and expand the hard disk, but this does not translate right over into Ubuntu because it will not automatically take up the allocated space.
    Now I have to track down the ISO to boot up in Hyper-V to see if I can manage the disk drive. This should all be native to Hyper-V.
    In fact the ISO of Ubuntu it downloads she stored so that it can accessed later for instance such as this where a LIVE iso…

  2. [BUG] Fix Ctrl-Alt-UpArrow keyboard shortcut in Virtual Machine Connection

    The shortcut for vmconnect.exe which releases the capture of keyboard and mouse input is Ctrl-Alt-LeftArrow by default and is configurable to a few other key combinations as well. Regardless, of what is configured however, Ctrl-Alt-UpArrow appears to always trigger this functionality as well and it is not even one of the combinations available to be configured to in Hyper-V Settings.

    This means this combination is unavailable in other client applications because vmconnect picks it up first.

  3. Match physical network list in virtual switch manager

    In the Hyper-V virtual switch manager, when you go to create a virtual switch, the list of physical network adapters in the machine do not match the names of the physical network adapters in the server control panel network connections list.

    This makes finding the matching physical network adapter that is mapped to the virtual switch a trial and error process.

    It would be nice if you could either rename the virtual switch physical network adapter names in the dropdown list OR just have the virtual switch manager actually use the name the control panel uses for the physical network…

  4. Provide a tool to downgrade configuration versions.

    I am running into the issue of Windows 10 having Config 8.2 and my Server 2016 Config 8.0. Running Windows Updates so far has not yielded the needed 8.2

    I often create my VMs on Windows 10, export and bring them up on Server. This is only going to get worst. Let's fix it right away.

    An option could be offered also to export to specific version, of course a warning that capabilities will be lost. Only makes sense.

  5. Windows Snap does not work with Hyper-V connections

    If you try to use Windows Snap the RDP session of a Hyper-V guest will minimize down to 3 icons.
    I recently bought a monitor with 21:9 thought I could snap 2 Hyper-V guest connections opened from Hyper-V MMC and use Windows Snap to put them side by side and scale.

    Nope! This is pretty bad design.

  6. Virtual Machine Connection: Broken: Toggle Fullscreen by Ctrl-Alt-Break

    This annoying bug happens on the Hyper-V Manager 10.0.16299.15

    Good evening

    If we double click a VM in the Hyper-V Manager to connect the to the VM Remote Desktop using the Virtual Machine Connection,
    then Ctrl-Alt-Break can no longer used to toggle the Fullscreen Mode: The Fullscreen mode is buggy.

    It's a shame that M$ does not test basic functions before Customers are forced to use new releases. Maybe you could google for well known best practices to automatically test Software. it's really useful.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas

  8. Fix virtual TPM in Linux guests

    I run CentOS 7 and RHEL 7 virtual machines on a Hyper-V Server 2016.

    Virtual TPMs in the VMs somehow worked, at least as entropy sources, before June 2017 Patch Tuesday. After I've applied the latest cumulative patch every TPM got broken on the next VM restart.

    The bug is a regression between 14393.1230 and 14393.1358.
    (I've downgraded and everything seems fine now.)

  9. Establish at least feature parity with the latest VMware vSphere, including web host/cluster management

    That includes ease of use, like the (distributed) vSwitch implementation VMware has.

  11. no .indexof in

    Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.VMSwitch is missing IndexOf method, which makes it tricky to get an index number.

    You'll have to pass it to a Customobject, and deserialize the information, if you wanna have any chance of using this.

  12. Mistake on Japan "Resume-VMReplication" website

    Hi You have a mistake on the bottom of the "Resume-VMReplication" website(japan version). The last example for resuming replication for all the VMs are wrong. It should be "resume-VMreplication " instead of "Resume-Replication "

  14. HyperV and HAXM should not be mutually exclusive

    Mobile developers want to use emulators, amongst other tech like containers, from different vendors. Currently, some of the emulators (Windows) are based on HyperV and some other (Google) are based on HAXM. This makes it almost impossible to do cross-platform development on Windows.

  17. Windows 2016 + Win10 Ent Guest + RemoteFX => DPI setting not preserved


    1. Install Windows 2016 and enable RemoteFX, 2. Install Win10 Enterprise as guest with RemoteFX enabled, 3. Connect to the Win10Ent using Win10Pro client. BUG: the DPI setting on Win10Pro client is not passed through to Win10Ent VM. Note that DPI setting can be passed thru if RemoteFX is disabled.

  18. Check MAC Address before create Teaming

    I found a strange problem with a host WS2012R2 (HP Proliant DL 380 g9 with 1 NIC 4 ports) during Teaming creation. For an astral reason, when I create a team, Windows assign the same MAC Address to Team NIC and also to Hyper-V Virtual Switch; the result is the total fail of everything.

    Why Windows Server 2012 R2 hasn’t a pre-check task to understand both NIC have the same MAC Address? Much better is check the MAC Address of the entire host.

  19. VM VLAN defined at vswitch port level

    It is more clear the vmware strategy to create portgroups on a vswitch that specifies the VLAN. All VMs connected to that portgroup are connected to same VLAN.

    What is the point on defining per VM, you are allowing users to create VM and they have to guess what is the VLAN id.

    Please review this and allow move VLAN VM definition to the vswitch.
