Known issue with Ubuntu Server 14.04 Hyper-V deployments


You’re trying to deploy Auvik using the bash script installer. Ubuntu installs successfully, SSH is installed, but you’re finding the following issues:

  • From your Ubuntu console, you can’t ping an internal or external IP address or hostname except for your hypervisor.
  • Rebooting the Auvik virtual machine temporarily solves the issue but the issue resurfaces after a minute or two.
  • Attempting to run the Auvik bash installer script when the above issues are present results in the script hanging.
