Excuse me if this is a noobish question, but this is the first time I'm using FreeBSD after purchasing a QOTOM and installing pfSense on it.
Context: The QOTOM PC I bought for my home office has shiny specs, and I intended to use the spare power to use it as my Kubernetes master (but without...
(1) Does the bhyve "-D" option as described as "Destroy the VM on guest initiated power-off." really work? -- I don't see the memory coming back until I call "bhyvectl --destroy --vm=vmname".
(2) Is there a command to show/list all running and "un-destroyed" (ie. memory not...
I'm experimenting bhyve with virtualized FreeBSD guests.
Host system: FreeBSD 13 with 8 GB or RAM on Intel chip.
On installation, there is a message that says ZFS tuning is necessary for using FreeBSD with less than 8 GB of RAM. I tried giving 1 GB to bhyve FreeBSD guests and they seem to be...
I'm now trying nested bhyve virtual machines:
Host OS: FreeBSD 13
Guest OS: FreeBSD 13
Yet Another Guest OS inside FreeBSD 13: OpenBSD 6.9
Upon trying to execute the "bhyve" command inside the Guest OS: FreeBSD 13, I get the following:
So, is there a way to make it work?
I'm trying to install/configure OpenBSD bhyve guests, by following these instructions.
Host OS: FreeBSD 13
Guest OS: OpenBSD 6.9
First, when I connect to the VM using VNC, I notice that it actually uses a different console. The text which are output the KDE Konsole terminal console is different...
My host is FreeBSD 13, and I'm now configuring bhyve to run a FreeBSD guest (version 13 as well).
If I put "-s 30,xhci,tablet", the mouse does NOT move at all.
However, if I remove that above, the mouse pointer moves BUT not synchronized with the one inside the VM.
What are the solutions -...
I'm trying to run FreeBSD with KDE or Xfce inside a bhyve virtual machine.
The bhyve command executed to start the VM has "-s 29,fbuf,tcp=0.0.0.0:5900,w=800,h=600 -s 30,xhci,tablet" included.
From within the VM, I tried to execute "startx" and I'm hit with the following error:
(EE) Cannot run...
I've launched an OpenBSD instance within bhyve. I'm testing if it is possible to run OpenBSD's virtualization (vm) by executing this command (from within OpenBSD):
and it returned nothing.
So, it is possible to set bhyve to to enable OpenBSD to run virtualization?
Hi, I have one virtual machine that returns "dataset does not exist" when I run vm info.
The configuration file of this vm is in /zroot/vms/windows7, there are two files device.map and windows7.conf.
I have a Lenovo X250 laptop. Alpine Linux works well on this laptop. When I try to start Windows - I get an error:
exit_reason 2 (Triple fault)...
I've tried a x86_64 guest Linux on Bhyve and it works. But x86 guest hangs at the virtio-blk message from the Linux kernel during boot. Might anyone know the reason for this?
This's my guest bootstrapper:
grub-bhyve -m device.map -r cd0 -M 196M -S linuxguest
bhyve -AHPDHwS -c 1 -m 196M -l...
I want to pass my WLAN card to bhyve VM. Host is FreeBSD 13.0-RC5, tried on FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Linux guests.
WLAN card is M.2 device and works on host. Passing another PCIe card (PCIe x4 LAN) to guests works.
WLAN card on host:
Apr 7 12:11:55 zen-pobro kernel: ath0: <Atheros AR946x/AR948x>...
Did someone notice performance degradation of the Bhyve VMs after upgrading to the 12.2?
I followed typical flow to upgrade:
- freebsd-update upgrade -r 12.2-RELEASE
- freebsd-update install
- freebsd-update install
- delete all ports installed
- portsnap fetch update
I've been using iohyve to help manage bhyve instances for a couple of years, but I'd like to explore other options.
Is it safe to run multiple management systems on one host (iohyve in addition to, say, cbsd or vm-bhyve), or is there a strategy for migrating guests from one to another? Is there...
As "FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE Release Notes" shows:
Does this only support FreeBSD guests?
On the following guests with virtio-blk+zvol backends, I tested whether the free space can be reclaimed automatically after deleting some files:
1. FreeBSD 12.2R UFS: Yes
2. FreeBSD 12.2R ZFS: Yes
I would like to make a quick note showing how I solved this. I actually noticed my mistake after reading reading this forum post.
I never allowed my vm-bhyve interface vm-public through my firewall. Because my default setting is to simply block everything, my VMs weren't...
I am having some difficulty getting vm-bhyve working. Actually, I am having difficulty getting bhyve to work at all, but I opted to try vm-bhyve because it seems easier to use and manage compared to the native tools.
I am trying to run a Linux guest (I have tried Ubuntu and Fedora) using...
we needed dedicated USB port on windows machine on bhyve so we installed a dedicated USB host controller: uPD720202 USB 3.0 Host Controller detached it and attached ppt driver to it :
devctl detach pci0:1:0:0 && devctl set driver pci0:1:0:0 ppt
