Configuring Windows template on KVM and Nutanix Acropolis hypervisors
- Windows virtual machine running on KVM and Nutanix Acropolis hypervisors requires a VirtIO driver installed in the guest. Stable virtio-win iso can be found here: Windows Virtio Drivers .
Once downloaded, attach it to the virtual machine and install missing drivers:

Join template to domain if required. It is not a requirement, since all guests will be joined to domain after template deployment in any case.
