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:
[peter@orca] /vms/.config# vm switch list

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):
184.108.40.206 (webserver vm)
The first, 220.127.116.11 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="18.104.22.168 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.
Over the course of the last week I tried to install Veeam Endpoint Backup (or rather Veeam Agent for Windows) on a Windows Server 2016 bhyve VM. I let vm-bhyve auto-create a disk for the VM. After installing Windows and installing Veeam Agent for Windows, the SQL Service and the...
I am trying to install Windows Server 2012 R2 (German Eval Version) as a virtual machine with bhyve. File name of the original iso is: Windows-Server-2012-R2-Eval-DE.ISO
I followed the instructions at https://github.com/churchers/vm-bhyve/wiki/Running-Windows.
The VM boots but...
