obtain console of a guest os from linux client


  • Hello All,

    As the title clearly suggests, I want to know whether it is possible to obtain the console of some guest os running on hyper-v from linux machine?

    I know it's possible if the client is windows machine like Windows 2k8 or Windows 7 through binary vmconnect.exe.

    Do we have similar/corresponding client available for linux clients? If not, is it feasible to write one?

    Since everything that is exposed by hyper-v is available only through WMI, I am a bit circumspect about writing one.

    Any links related with this topic will be helpful.

  • Hi,

    No, there isn’t such a client/console for Linux. You can write one yourself.

  • Are you aware of any such client or at least who have tried?

    As I have mentioned in above post, everything is exposed via WMI & I did not find any class or interface that will help me in writing client app which takes console.

    I also observed packets between client & hyper-v, but all the data in encrypted, so totally confused about how to implement it for linux.
