Virtuozzo Hybrid Server Supported Guest Operating Systems Guide

Virtuozzo is committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective solutions to our customers. Rapidly changing technologies influence the level, timing, and character of demand for particular product versions and components. All of these drive the need to introduce new products and services and to stop testing and supporting specific guest operating systems.

This guide intends to provide the list of guest OSs supported by a particular version of Virtuozzo Hybrid Server.

Find below information on guest OSs tested and supported in virtual machines and containers and the list of legacy (end-of-life) guest OSs

Notes and Known Limitations

  • FreeBSD 10.x and FreeBSD 9.x cannot work inside the virtual machines with UEFI boot enabled.

  • FreeBSD 8.x is not supported due to SCSI limitations. Instead, you can try to configure the OS manually and use IDE controllers.

  • Hotplug features for FreeBSD and some functions of FreeBSD guest tools are not fully implemented yet.

Experimental Support of Guest Operating Systems in Virtual Machines

  • AlmaLinux 9.x

Legacy (End-of-life) Guest Operating Systems

We highly recommend upgrading or using new versions of supported operating systems. Using an end-of-life operating system may cause technical issues in the future, as we no longer test such an operating system.
