Hello guys, I hope am in the right forum. I am virtualizing Windows 7 on my Win 8 with Hyper-V, everything is working great, except the virtual machine is unable to find my wireless network adapter. I tried adding the legacy network adapter, nothing. It can get the wired adapter, but that's about it. Any ideas?

Platform: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (Standard) for both host and VHD. Use: Remote access for application. RDS uses both host and VHD to give separation for security in SMB environment. Problem: DNS configuration was a nightmare here, and some issues may be part of that. The challenge, though, is that the VHD takes an inordinate time to connect to the host. I am concerned this will cause problems authenticating users (AD on host). An example of this is difficulty adding users to RDS because of not finding the domain (it looks like it is timing out because it does …

My good friend and partner in crime, [URL="http://blogs.zdnet.com/perlow"]Jason Perlow[/URL] is working on (as I'm writing this) a new Linux distribution that is Hyper-V ready. It is a modified OpenSUSE 11.1 that includes the Linux Integration Components (ICs) from [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft[/URL]. He'll have a link to it on his blog in a day or two for everyone to use. So, Jason is baking a new Linux distribution that he calls the Jason Server and he's using OpenSUSE because it's free and he can build a distribution easily on [URL="http://www.novell.com"]Novell[/URL]'s [URL="http://www.susestudio.com"]SUSE Studio[/URL]. The Linux ICs allow you to install Linux seamlessly onto a …

I received a newsletter from [URL="http://www.rpath.com"]rPath[/URL] concerning Lean IT and it occurred to me that Linux is the keystone in each one of the elements listed in it: Virtualization, Cloud Computing and Cost reduction mandates. As more businesses work toward saving money, they'll look for ways to save on IT infrastructure (Hardware), labor and external services. All of those cost-cutting changes point suspiciously to Linux. [B]Virtualization[/B] - With the exception of [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft[/URL]'s Hyper-V, all virtualization solutions are Linux or Unix-based: [URL="http://www.linux-kvm.org"]KVM[/URL], [URL="http://www.citrix.com"]Xen[/URL], [URL="http://www.vmware.com"]VMware[/URL], [URL="http://www.sun.com"]Solaris Zones[/URL], [URL="http://www.openvz.org"]OpenVZ[/URL] and [URL="http://www.qemu.org"]QEMU[/URL]. It's obvious from this list that Linux is the preferred technology for …

A lot of companies are attempting to hitch their wagons to a star these days with a long layover in the Clouds. Big companies like [URL="http://www.sun.com"]Sun[/URL], [URL="http://www.ibm.com"]IBM[/URL], [URL="http://www.hp.com"]HP[/URL], [URL="http://www.cisco.com"]Cisco[/URL], [URL="http://www.amazon.com"]Amazon[/URL], [URL="http://www.google.com"]Google[/URL], [URL="http://www.vmware.com"]VMware[/URL] and [URL="http://www.citrix.com"]Citrix[/URL] are making major financial investments in Cloud culture. Are they chasing rainbows or will they find gold in the silver lining? I think there's a good possibility that they will find gold--now the question is, how much will they find. Amazon proved that it's possible to develop, maintain, promote and make a successful cloud-oriented business. Are they making billions from their new enterprise? No. Will they? …

It wasn't due for another six weeks or so, but today Microsoft surprised many folk by starting to sell its new Hyper-V server virtualisation software. Microsoft had repeatedly told anyone who asked, and anyone who was listening, that it would be released in August. However, Microsoft customers were alerted to the fact that they could actually start downloading it today from the Microsoft website. That is, the final Release to Manufacturing version is now available for full deployment into production environments. A beta of Hyper-V was included with Windows Server 2008 and [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/virtualization-consolidation.aspx"]this update[/URL] provides the final release version.

There has been much debate over the last week as to how the forthcoming Windows Server 2008 release from Microsoft will embrace Linux, specifically with regard to the interoperability between Windows and Linux as evidenced by Release Candidate 1 code. The two sides of the story seem to be either: Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Beta is built upon Xen source code, a project partially funded by Microsoft, so Linux interoperability is a given. Xen will be a core part of Hyper-V, and when you run a Linux Virtual Machine calls to Xen will be translated into Hyper-V hypercalls. Hyper-V is …
