6.2. RHEA-2013:0484 — new packages: hypervkvpd
New hypervkvpd packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The hypervkvpd packages contain hypervkvpd, the guest Hyper-V Key-Value Pair (KVP) daemon. Using VMbus, hypervkvpd passes basic information to the host. The information includes guest IP address, fully qualified domain name, operating system name, and operating system release number. An IP injection functionality is also provided which allows you to change the IP address of a guest from the host via the hypervkvpd daemon.
This enhancement update adds the hypervkvpd packages to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. For more information about inclusion of, and guest installation support for, Microsoft Hyper-V drivers, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Release Notes. (BZ#850674)
All users who require hypervkvpd are advised to install these new packages. After installing the hypervkvpd packages, rebooting all guest machines is recommended, otherwise the Microsoft Windows server with Hyper-V might not be able to get information from these guest machines.
