Installing on Hyper-V

Updated 9 months ago by admin

After installing USS Gateway server software in a Hyper-V virtual machine, it is recommended that you enable Microsoft Integration Services.

To do this, log in to the USS Gateway Command Line and become root by typing

sudo su

Now type

nano /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

Add the following lines to the end of the file:

hv_vmbus
hv_storvsc
hv_blkvsc
hv_netvsc

Now save and exit with Ctrl+X then Y then Enter.

Now type

update-initramfs -u

The next step is to change some settings that will improve the use of the Hyper-V console. Type:

nano /etc/default/grub

Find the lines below, and make sure they are set accordingly. You may have to remove "quiet splash" from one of the lines.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

Next, uncomment this line by removing the #

GRUB_TERMINAL=console

Now save and exit with Ctrl+X then Y then Enter. Now type:

update-grub

To ensure the changes take effect you must reboot the USS Gateway server. Simply type

halt

and then in the settings for the virtual machine. ensure that the Hyper-V virtual machine is set to use the Synthetic/Native Network Card driver (not the Legacy Network Driver). Now you can start the virtual machine again and continue with the configuration.
