After finally setting up a SLES 10 server on Hyper-V I thought I write a little how to on getting the Linux Integration components working. Microsoft includes an install doc that doesn’t really tell the whole story.
I had already installed SLES before I read the manual and found out that XEN Virtualization support needed to be installed as well and Microsoft documentation also states that you need the C++ compiler. What they really mean is the gcc compiler. What they fail to mention is that you also need he kernel-sources installed as well.
