Hello,

I’ve announced a new functionality for Linux virtual machines on Hyper-V a few days ago. I called it “Set-LinuxVM”.

What you can do with “Set-LinuxVM”:

1) Unattended IP, Hostname and DNS configuration for Linux VMs.
2) Automatic Linux integration components installation.
3) Multi Distro Support: Debian, Ubuntu, Centos, Fedora, Redhat and Suse!
4) Automatic CPanel installation for Redhat and Centos
5) Linux VM Template support (Use Skip for EnableLIC switch)
6) Hyper-V support! You don’t need SCVMM to use this script.
7) Multiple Hyper-V and SCVMM host support.
8) Automatic Emulated NIC to Synthetic NIC support.
9) No need to internet connection (SSH access etc.) or additional changes on VM.
10) Custom Answer File support! You can execute your own scripts.

Download:

Usage:
1. First, you should disable Execution policy:

Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

PS: I’m looking for a way to assign this script with a commercial certificate.

2. Extract file and move “SetLinuxVM” directory under to “C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules”.

3. Import as a module:

Import-Module SetLinuxVM

4. That’s it. To see how to use it:

Get-help Set-LinuxVM -full

5. Follow to instructions.
