if you are following Hyper-V, you know that they added support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (32bit and 64bit). This is the webpage outlining this support: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/hyperv-supported-guest-os.aspx

In order for VMM to take advantage of this new OS support in Hyper-V (and as long as you are using the supported version of Hyper-V for SUSE 11), you need to execute a Database script to update VMM.

 

To make the process simple, follow the exact same steps as this blog post from me. http://blogs.technet.com/b/m2/archive/2010/04/16/getting-the-os-name-for-windows-2000-to-show-up-properly-in-the-vmm-administrator-console.aspx However, instead of the DB scripts outlined in this blog post, run the two ones i mention below

<< 

INSERT INTO tbl_IL_OS

(OSId, Name, Description, Edition, ProductType, Version, Architecture, OSFlags, VMWareGuestId) VALUES ('dd8570f2-00db-449f-aa97-9c189279eeb3', 'Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 (64 bit)', 'Suse Linux Enterprise Server (64 bit)', NULL, NULL, NULL, 'amd64', 0x14, 'suse64Guest')

INSERT INTO tbl_IL_OS

(OSId, Name, Description, Edition, ProductType, Version, Architecture, OSFlags, VMWareGuestId) VALUES ('7a6b5e40-c2ae-4709-b789-1ed711817094', 'Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 (32 bit)', 'Suse Linux Enterprise Server (32 bit)', NULL, NULL, NULL, 'x86' , 0x15, 'suseGuest')
