    Ubuntu Server on Hyper V Keeps Locking up

    I have an Ubuntu Server on which I run the Concerto application for Digital Signage. When I had Ubuntu on a physical machine it ran fine. I have now built it as a VM on a beefy Windows 2008 R2 machine HYPER-V install but the Ubuntu server keeps locking up. Users cannot login to the Concerto web front end and I cannot ping the server. When I go into Hyper V and pause the server and then click Resume it kicks into life. I have given the ubuntu machine 1 Virtual Processor and 4GB RAM.

    Any ideas why it keeps locking up?

    Has anyone successfully run Ubuntu Server under Hyper-V?

    Is the network adapter in Hyper-V a Synthetic or Legacy adapter?

    Ubuntu includes the HyperV drivers. Once you enable them you can run synthetic network drivers.

    Altough not officicly supported by Microsoft, it works great.

    Code:
    nano /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
    
    & add below lines
    
    hv_vmbus
    hv_storvsc
    hv_blkvsc
    hv_netvsc
    
    then run
    
    update-initramfs ľu
    
    and reboot
