Virtualization Manager does not display the guest operating system of a virtual machine

Updated December 11, 2017

Overview

Virtualization Manager displays the operating system of a virtual machine on the VM details page.

In some cases, this information is not available for virtual machines running on a Microsoft® Hyper-V host. This happens when the Hyper-V Daemon is not running on the operating system of the VM. The daemon allows the hypervisor to query the name of the operating system.

Environment

All VMAN versions

Resolution

Install the Hyper-V KVP Daemon.

Windows systems

Hyper-V integration services are a built-in feature of recent Microsoft Windows® versions.

Linux systems

The KVP Daemon is usually available as a package in the standard repositories. For example, on CentOS, the package name is hypervkvpd.

On Ubuntu, the package name varies between versions. For Ubuntu 14.04, the package name is linux-cloud-tools-generic. On older versions, the package name can be linux-tools-generic or hv-kvp-daemon-init.
