Linux VirtIO drivers for Linux

Modern Linux Kernels have VirtIO drivers installed but they might not be registered if VM was originally created on ESXi.

  • Login as root (or a sudo user)
  • Run “dracut –add-drivers “virtio_pci virtio_blk virtio_scsi virtio_net” -f -v ” command
  • Make sure the output does not show any errors.

This applies to CentOS, RHEL, SUSE Linux versions.
