Configuring Windows template on KVM and Nutanix Acropolis hypervisors

  1. 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 .
  2. Once downloaded, attach it to the virtual machine and install missing drivers:

    • Red Hat VirtIO Ethernet Adapter
    • VirtIO Balloon Driver
    • Red Hat VirtIO SCSI pass-through controller
  3. Install required software.

  4. 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.
