Since FreeBSD 11 is here, I am tempted to simplify our server setup, and use Bhyve also for all jail needs.
I would not mind exchanging a small percentage of available CPU for more simplicity, but does it make sense to standardise on Bhyve vs Jails, in order to simplify setup and workflow?
I would like to introduce a new FreeBSD-based distro: ClonOS ( http://clonos.tekroutine.com/ site is underconstruction ).
Currently, FreeBSD is well proven as a base for routers (pfSense, OPNSense, BSDRP) and NAS (FreeNAS, zfsGuru, Nas4Free). However, FreeBSD-based solutions are almost...
Hi guys! Any notable difference on choosing socket 1151 for FreeBSD vm-bhyve?
I want to be able to use:
MSI / MSI-X
My setup is raidz3 SSD. Will ZFS Raidz3 SSD's benefit more in socket 1151 (Skylake)?
Here are the difference between the two. Aside from Socket 1150...
How can I configure my network to achieve this? Probably it's simple, but I couldn't figure it out.
The simplest case is when I have 2 bhyve guests, one on tap0, another on on tap1. I'd like those guest OS's to see each other having IP addresses in the same range.
It seems that hardware offloading doesnt work with Intel I210 NIC and bhyve. I had to disable the hardware offloading to make the host talk to the vm via ssh. Further details are here.
Is this a known limitation of this NIC?
I'm trying to configure bhyve to use a static ip address on my network. I know I can use nat and dhcp but I'm trying to learn how to configure a static ip as a learning lesson.
I used the vm utility to configure bhyve like so
betsy# vm switch list
NAME TYPE IDENT VLAN NAT PORTS
I have a VM running FreeBSD-CURRENT in bhyve but I could not get the network working properly.
I created tap0 and bridge0 interfaces as described in the relevant chapter of the handbook. I have only a wireless NIC, so I followed the advice in bhyve wiki page and created proper pf...
Hello, I'm build kernel with options for Bhyve:
It's ok and it works.
But, I can't find anywhere option for vmm like: device vmm.
With this option kernel can't build. My configuration for bhyve works when I add to /boot/loader.conf
Just reading about OpenStack, in particular about supported hypervisors. Is there any technical reason why bhyve isn't on that list or is it just a matter of it being too young, immature or a lack of time/interest from the community?
I am trying to determine if my processor supports bhyve. Just reading the 21.7. FreeBSD as a Host with bhyve page. I can find the POPCNT flag when grepping /var/run/dmesg.boot but can't find a line with VT-x. In particular:
CPU: AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 3380 (2600.05-MHz K8-class CPU)...
Please help, I have been trying to figure this out for a couple of weeks now. I need a new set of eyes on this problem. Attached is a diagram to better illustrate the configuration.
To sum up the issue:
Can ping any host to any host
Can fully communicate from/to other physical hosts to the...
I've try to find anything on FreeBSD to run virtual machines. Looks like XEN is not ready (my system is reboot on booting kernel with xen). After some hours in google i successfully run bhyve with FreeBSD guest. But I would also like to get Linux in bhyve. And i do not understand how to...
I installed FreeBSD 10.3-BETA2 on a system with a Z170 chipset and Skylake CPU on a ZFS root device. When I have both VT-d enabled in the bios and vmm (for bhyve) enabled in loader.conf, sometime during the boot, there's an unrecoverable error with my SATA hard drive, it's reattched, but the...
I've got a bridge1 with several jails' interfaces as members (vnet1:1, vnet1:2, etc) these can pass packets between each other.
There's a bhyve instance on the host using tap0 which I've added to bridge1, this tunnel is not able to connect to any of the jail vnet interfaces.
Is this to be...
I have several bhyve guest OSs in FreeBSD 11-CURRENT. I never run two guests with the same PCI pass-through device.
I pass trough a PCI device (USB controller) to a Linux guest. It works properly. Then I halt the VM, make sure that bhyve destroyed it and run Windows guest with the same PCI...
