I have just installed seven new HP printers that will be managed by HP through their Jet advantage software.
I had created a Windows 2008R2 server to act as the print server and it was running on UCS 4.1.3-239 using
QEMU and managed by UVMM and I’d installed VIRTIO drivers for the hard drives (a pretty standard install).
I then started installing the HP software but during its prerequisite checks it said I couldn’t install it on the
C: drive because it wasn’t an internal system drive, it saw it as a network drive.
I tried creating a new drive image as D: drive (RAW and QCOW2) but nothing worked.
In the end I used Sysinternals ‘disk2vhd’ to grab a copy of the qemu image and copied it to a hyper-V server.
The software installed without a glitch.
I assume it is the VIRTIO drivers that are the problem. I would like to use the latest version of QEMU on UCS
but there are obviously restrictions to this which is a shame, I don’t think it would solve the problem
but it would just be nice to have a current QEMU version.
