    Hyper-V - question Linux Guest with RAID arrays


    Hi there
    I'm gradually giving up on VMWare to go to HYPER-V.

    One issue I have is that if I create a Linux server VM I still want to use existing XFS formatted HDD's on the Guest in RAID arrays. There's around 10 TB of space - and about 3 TB of data.

    Is the HYPER-V system as Host robust enough to run say Ubuntu or Centos VM's with their native Linux formatted HDD's - that's no prob with VMware but googling around the advice seems to be don't use physical HDD's with HYPER-V.

    I really don't want the whole exercise of converting these to VHD's - also the RAID system might hose up when done like that. (using Linux software RAID - mdadm - works efficiently every time and is a good performer).

    Any ideas @Kari as I think he's the expert around here). I don't have a problem with creating the base VM's -- some of the pass thru stuff is a bit ???.

    I don't need sound either but I do also need "Hot pluggable USB3 devices" -- Is that sufficiently robust as well - note these external HDD's are also xfs formatted so I just want to mount them on the Linux vm with standard mount/dev/sdx-t auto -o rw /mnt/shares or whatever.

    Thanks

    cheers

    How to get a Linux guest to work with Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V

    I've got Hyper-V running on my Win10 Pro computer and am having trouble getting a Linux client to run. It will install fine, but keeps telling me that it's running in software emulation mode and not using the actual GPU. Here are my questions:

    Does Linux need to be installed as a Gen 1 or 2 installation?

    Can guest additions be installed or will it be permanently grayed out?

    Are there certain Linux distros that work better than others in Hyper-V?

    I have been using Virtualbox for the longest time and quite happy with it. That being said, I have a new job and need to learn the Microsoft way of virtualization as they use Hyper-V and Server 2008 or 2012. Yes I will be installing the trial versions of
    those two to learn them also.

    Thanks.
