Installed a bhyve instance of FreeBSD for testing. Mouse cursor appears and clicks work (I can click the line it's hovering over) but mouse movement is not picked up.
Using TigerVNC client.
Anyone familiar with this issue and know how to fix it?
Hi, I'm running FreeBSD 11.1 on an Fujitsu Siemens RX300 S6, with two Xeon L5640. I've to use for software legacy reaons an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to develop a large set of PhaseOne IIQ images (SDK is released for Linux 16.04). I use bhyve and it worked very well out of the box . Thank you FreeBSD...
I'm getting to a point where I want to switch my desktop to FreeBSD, but can't yet because there are some specific applications that I use that are Linux only. I'd like to simply just run FreeBSD as my host OS and have a Linux guest(s), but the thing is, some of the applications I use require...
Hello! Having troubles with passing pci device to the guest. Here is what we have:

I have two old (hardware) production servers, one which runs bhyve VMs and another which runs virtualbox VMs, which are to be replaced -- ideally by a workhorse.
Can a single FreeBSD server be made to stably host both bhyve and virtualbox VMs?
(It occurs to me that it might...
A long time linux user, I tried FreeBSD on digitalocean a few years back. Now I'm to the point where my entire cloud & home infrastructure is FreebSD based- pfsense, FreeNAS, and a FreeBSD application server.
Release: FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p4
I have recently started working with bhyve setting up virtual servers in my office. So far it works great.
Now that it I see how well it works I am regretting not making my file server larger. Is there any way I can just "append" the VM disk file and make it bigger without having to build...
I want to build FreeBSD NanoBSD images in a Bhyve VM.
Can anyone speak to the speed hit I will take when compiling under a FreeBSD-CURRENT VM using FreeBSD 11.1 Bhyve host.
What is disk throughput like in a VM? Much speed loss from host disk thoughput?
I currently use a separate box for...
I've just started using vm-bhyve, and none of vm's have network connectivity. Here's what everything looks like, following the simple example in the vm-bhyve wiki to install a FreeBSD guest with default settings:

I use bhyve and have a problem with non-US keymap and the VNC server.
This is a bug that was reported at least to FreeNAS and was fixed a few weeks ago according to the bug report here:
When will this fix come into FreeBSD?
How does the process work...
Both host/guest are using FreeBSD 11.1, I created the VM using vm-byhbe.
This is host configurationhe host:
ifconfig_igb0_ipv6="inet6 2a01:4f8:150:84ec::1 prefixlen 64"
Environment: FreeBSD 11.1R, 10Gbx2 Ethernet(LACP), 8GBx2 FC(multipath)
I want to build a FreeBSD virtualization cluster with 5+ hosts. Because bhyve doesn't support live migration at this time, Xen(Dom0) is the unique method.
The simplest topology looks like:
Server2 ... Server9...
I'm trying to assign a public IP to a guest managed by bhyve.
My host gave me 2 public IPs to use, which I'll refer to as (to obfuscate the real IP):
126.96.36.199 (webserver vm)
The first, 188.8.131.52 is assigned to the host's interface, which has internet...
I'm trying to figure out to assign a real IP address to a bhyve vm running Ubuntu. (Real IP address means a public facing IP address assigned by the provider.)
vm switch add public em0
Then, I should omit:
ifconfig_igb0_alias0="184.108.40.206 netmask n.n.n.n"
in the rc.conf...
I am very close to getting Centos7 (version 1503) running on FreeBSD 11.1 with bhyve, but I am stuck. I have used the following instructions for installation. Please let me know if you can advice how to address the /dev/mapper/centos-root issue or an alternative way to get Centos7 running in...
After updating my poudriere ports tree, sysutils/rubygem-facter was updated from version 2.4.6 to version 2.5.0.
This is causing puppet to hang for 5-10 minutes at Info: Loading facts, but only for my bhyve virtual machines. I'm trying to track down differences between facts that test on eg...
I am running arch Linux guest via bhyve. I already installed xorg-server and xorg-xinit on the guest. But I am not sure which graphic driver I should install and I don't know if I have to install any graphic components at the host as well?
tl;dr - Don't add vmm_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf when trying to play with bhyve on a server using VirtualBox and then forget about it...
I'm posting this partly in public celebration of my own stupidity o_O, but mostly because I found a lack of pertinent results when searching the web for...
Hello community of freeBSD
I have a project in mind to replace my windows server park.
Currently I have a netgear as router and a Windows 2008 server that does AD and windows share.
I have for idea to replace the netgear by PFSENSE and the active directory by samba4 for the domain controller...
After restarting FreeBSD11.0p10_amd64 and then connecting to one of the bhyve guest machine for testing purpose I encountered the problem with escaping from the cu command.
The following commands do not work. Terminal puts char ~ and new line only without escaping, I use Putty v0.69.
