Problems with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9, 5.8+LIS3.4 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have several Red Hat 5.8 and 5.9 VM's running on Server 2012 Hyper-V on a couple of different hardware platforms, all with LIS 3.4, all exhibiting the same issues:

    1. The VM's will not gracefully shut down when Shut Down... is selected from the Hyper-V manager. Instead they turn off - pretty bad for VM's file-systems, especially the ones running databases. This is supposed to work according the LIS release notes.

    2. The mouse on the console - ever though it works - it is way off from the "real mouse pointer. I don't see any hv_mouse module installed, instead hid_hyperv is installed which I am assuming handles all input devices. Also something advertised as working in the LIS release notes.

    3. Time keeping is a nightmare. The clock in the Red Hat VMs is all over the place and there is no hv_timesource module installed.

    Could anyone please provide any insight on how to address any of these issues?

    Thanks in advance.

  •  have several Red Hat  5.9 VM's . . ., all with LIS 3.4

    EL 5.9 contain _integrated_ support of Hyper-V 

    Install LIS 3.4 on EL 5.9  -- is _error_ of sysadmin, as _minimum_ it is downgrade

     my problem is not only with 5.9 but with 5.8 also. And just to clarify, I am using LIS3.4 from Microsoft on 5.8 and the LIS included with the distribution on 5.9

    Ok . . .

    > no see hv_mouse module . . . , instead hid_hyperv is installed

     Yes, in EL v5.9 "Hyper-V mouse driver" is hid_hyperv.ko  ( in fact  hid_hyperv.ko + hid_base_hv) 

    > 2. The mouse on the console - ever though it works - it is way off from the "real mouse pointer.

    In EL 6.4 mouse on Hyper-V work Super Ok

     In EL 5.9 mouse on Hyper-V work strange

    1:

    EL 5.9 2xMouse_Cursor 1-st cursor on [Applications]


    ~

     If go mouse up, after 1-5 pixel and 0.01 - 0.05 sec:

    ==

    EL 5.9 2xMouse_Cursor 1-st cursor go from [Applications] to Hyper-V buttons

    ==

    To JohnPapad: You describe this situation?

     P.S. Look like

    Bug 849544 - [Hyper-V pv drivers]Two mouse icons show up on the guest screen

  • Thanks for you reply but that does not answer any of my questions as my problem is not only with 5.9 but with 5.8 also. And just to clarify, I am using LIS3.4 from Microsoft on 5.8 and the LIS included with the distribution on 5.9

    There is a bug. Bug 903460 - use poweroff instead of shutdown in hv_util
