RHEL/CentOS 6.6 : hyperv-daemons RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Just a heads-up for those upgrading their RHEL/CentOS 6.6 VMs


    New hyperv-daemons packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

    The hyperv-daemons packages provide a suite of daemons that are needed when a Linux guest is running on a Windows Host with HyperV. The following daemons are included: - hypervkvpd, the guest Hyper-V Key-Value Pair (KVP) daemon. - hypervvssd, the implementation of HyperV VSS functionality for Linux guest. - hypervfcopyd, the implementation of file copy service functionality for Linux Guest running on HyperV.

    To install

    yum install hyperv-daemons

    Reboot after install

    If you get any errors about conflicts with microsoft-hyper-v, you need to uninstall them and reboot first.

    rpm -e microsoft-hyper-v kmod-microsoft-hyper-v

    Also need to remove Hyper-V Backup Essentials . Refer to site for uninstallation instructions.

    Please test before deploying to your production VMs

    Also refer to CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual machines on Hyper-V for overview
