    A guide how to run Ubuntu 18.04 in Enhanced Mode in Hyper-V

    NOTE: This guide has been superseded. Just use Quick Create from Hyper-V, select Ubuntu.


    Here is a quick guide how to run ubuntu 18.04 in enhanced mode in Hyper-V.

    EDIT: This has now been modified for release version.

    Please guys, do not add any comments about Virtualbox or VMware being better. Start a new thread if you wish to discuss that. The aim here is to get constructive comments about the Hyper-V mode that can be fed back to developers. I will ask @Brink to remove any such irrelevant comments.

    It is actually quite easy to do.

    Note: It will only work on 1803 (or Skip Ahead I believe). It will not work on FCU 1709.


    It is based on this blog, but there are a couple of differences as that was based on 16.04

    Sneak Peek: Taking a Spin with Enhanced Linux VMs | Virtualization Blog

    Running in enhanced mode allows you to :-

    a) resize screens

    b) cut and paste text from host and vice versa

    c) access native wndows drives

    I cannot guarantee this works if the RDP default port of 3389 is changed, or if using 3rd party firewalls.

    Steps are as follows:-

    1) Install Ubuntu


    Download Ubuntu 18.04 iso, and install it in hyper-V as generation 1 vm. I will assume install is named Ubuntu - you need name in Step 4


    http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04/ubu...ktop-amd64.iso


    Be patient installing - it is very slow, even with minimal install!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2) Modify ubuntu 18.04 to use xrdp


    Code:
    Now we need to edit install.sh and comment out two lines

    edit it and add # in front of the two rmmod commands as so:-

    Code:
    Code:
    Shutdown Ubuntu VM.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3) Register Ubuntu session

    Run this command on host PC using powershell with admin rights

    Code:
    (change vmname as appropriate from Step 1). Put name in double quotes if spaces in name.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4) Start in Enhanced Mode

    Restart VM, and you the get the familiar enhanced mode screen

    Important:- UNCHECK Printers in local resources. There is a bug at the moment and if you leave it checked, you cannot see host drives you select.



    If you forget, close down VM AND the VMCONNECT SESSION - do not restart same VMCONNECT session or else the enhanced mode screen does not pop up.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5) Login to XRDP

    You will then get the xrdp login screen, and enter username - must be lowercase.

    It will now run it in enhanced mode.

    Cut and Paste works now.

    Shared Host Drives are now visible
