Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

I have a question if it is possible to install the Hyper-V Integration Services and if so is there a tutorial about thsi.

 

Thanks for the effort

 

Cheers

I think someone would need to compile the Integration Services source code for DSM. I can't find any links for this on Google, I think you may be out of luck.

 

There's a lot more people running Xpenology under VMware vSphere so there are more guides and help available if you go down this route. If you come from a Microsoft background, as I do, it can be quite steep learning curve, but it's worth it in the end :smile:

I'd like to know if this is possible. I just need something to make the VM shutdown properly when restarting the Hyper-V server.

Currently it shuts down forcibly, so before rebooting the Hyper-V I have to login to the machine and shut it down properly before reboot :sad:

Microsoft Hyper-V client drivers

Aigor, I am not sure how to determine if I have the latest version and how to update to the latest if I have an out-of date one.

Please advice.

Hi, ssh in your NAS, go in /lib/modules/ check if there are modules with this command

DiskStation> pwd
/lib/modules
DiskStation>
DiskStation> find hv*

hv_balloon.ko
hv_netvsc.ko
hv_storvsc.ko
hv_vmbus.ko

 

If you have these modules, load them,and try if they work

Forgot to mention my version

DSM 5.2-5565 Update 2

Hi I have all of those listed as well. My version is DSM 5.-5967 Update 2.

The only issue I have is, that I need the VM to shutdown properly when restarting the Hyper-V.

Currently the sutdown is by force.

Can you please explain how to load those modules?

I am a little n00b here.

cd /lib/modules
insmod "name of module.ko"

Can't insert (any of the four modules) : File exists

It means they are already loaded, at this point i don't know why you can't shutdown VM in safe way.

It says Failed to shutdown the VM and a lot of text, that the integration services are not installed or runnning blah di blah...

Have no clue why it does behave like this then.

Searching on google showme kernel part that need to be included in kernel compiling, but i suspect it's a little beat out of your knoweldge as you said before.
