OPNsense would be a nice firewall to have running. Great web based management and ability to expand functionality with add-ons. OPNsense runs on top of HardenedBSD.
HardenedBSD is FreeBSD with strong ASLR. https://hardenedbsd.org/content/easy-feature-comparison
OPNsense should be pretty robust solution for those who needs a cheap and reliable VPN tunnel. E.g. against Azure.1 vote
Pre Freeze and Post Thaw script execution as part of Linux VSS snapshots to provide database quiescing
The ability to execute custom scripts in order to quiesce a database as part of the Hyper-V Linux Guest VSS snapshot process. This would provide Application Consistency and not just File System consistency in Linux guests.
i.e. similar to what VMwareTools provides and what Veeam/Comvault exploit: http://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11/article?p=products/vs_vmware/t_vmw_config_pre_post_snap_script.htm7 votes
SecureBoot can not be done even if Linux Integration Services Version 4.1.3 for Hyper - V is installed on CentOS 7.3 VM on Windows Server 20
SecureBoot can not be done even if Linux Integration Services Version 4.1.3 for Hyper - V is installed on CentOS 7.3 VM on Windows Server 2016.
I noticed a similar phenomenon in Linux Integration Services Version 4.1.2 for Hyper-V. I will report on "Linux Integration Services Version 4.1.3 for Hyper - V" because it has not healed.
Although it is in Japanese, the confirmed result is described as the following URL.
Now that powershell is opensource and runs on linux you should enabled powershell direct for linux VMs running on hyperv.9 votes
Either support Linux domain member servers or clients with AD domain policies through a new integration service or make sure that the Windows server eventlogs aren't flooded with events complaining about this matter.
The solution or workaround at the moment for this is clearing the AD attribute DNSHostName contents with powershell or adsiedit on the computer object of the in the event log mentioned Linux host inside the residing container. As long as the (make sure it's static anyway) DNS entry for the Linux hosts exists it will not give any problems, but much less system event log errors.1 vote
Would be great have Bash on Windows Server like Windows 10 have. Some tools will be useful like ssh to connect others remote linux servers. Apache, php, mysql ... There are so many reasons to improve that tool. Admins can otherwise activate or not.1 vote
Enable something like the enhanced session for linux VMs on Windows 10 hyper-v. It should be possible to use more than one monitor or drag and drop with linux clients. Support for 3d acceleration would also ne gread.
Our developpers need linux and enabeling this feature would make it possible to use hyper-v and not virtualbox anymore.
Hyper-v works perfekt for Windows VMs but can't be used with linux.
Just to make it clear: I am speaking about Client Hyper-V. Servers are working great.16 votes
LIS shouldn't be pinned to specific kernel versions and should be distributed as a package via a repository
Much like VMWare, Xen, etc. LIS shouldn't be kernel version specific, ever. Also, LIS should be available for numerous distributions via packages (not tarballs with shell scripts). Finally, LIS should be distributed via repositories (not some random KB number). Adhere to Linux standards and best practices; it'd really help us like you guys more.16 votes
You are adding support for Windows 10 Enterprise. What about other guest operating systems for OpenGL/OpenCL? We really need this in RedHat/CentOS for Landmark seismic applications. Otherwise we still have to run VMWare for those systems.34 votes
Hyper-V in Windows 10 Anniversary Update and in Windows Server 2016 has the ability to do Discrete Device Assignment, where a device like a GPU can be directly mapped into the address space of a guest VM. This is supported for Windows guests and for Linux guests. For Linux guests, the needed kernel device drivers are in the latest upstream Linux kernel as part of the Hyper-V Linux Integration Services (LIS). These drivers are now flowing downstream into individual Linux distros releases. Ubuntu 16.04 has the drivers, and we’re working with Red Hat to get the drivers into future RHEL updates, which of course will cover CentOS as well. With the GPU mapped into the Linux guest, you can use whatever user space libraries, like OpenGL/OpenCL and others, that are needed by your computational application.
We don’t have any plans to offer RemoteFX for Linux guests.
Getting and renewing certificates from a Windows CA is a process that needs to be optimized as it needs too much manual intervention:
Generating the request, copy to management station, request cert, export, sometimes convert to other formats (f.i. pem) via openssh, copy back to linux machine. Then keep an eye on expiry dates and do it all again prior to cert expiration.
There should be an easy scriptable way to request and get the certificates on the linux machine as well as autorenewal.9 votes
- Create an APT repository for the latest Hyper-V Integration Services for Ubuntu and Debian.
- Create HTTP repository for RPMs for SuSE Linux and RedHat/CentOS latest Hyper-V Integration Services.29 votes
As for now we have no option to trace events like kernel panic or storage faiulure and restart vms.8 votes
Support for Debian VMs is worst when compared with Ubuntu, CentOS and others distributions. Would be nice if we had Debian with funcionalities like Dynamic Memory, Virtual Fibre Channel and etc.14 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We’re engaging with the Debian community to get these updates made over the next few months.
