Soundcard Windows 7 on a Hyper-V Host

Hello,

I am setting up a lab environment for Microsoft Lync Serve.r To show the voice features I need a virtual Windows 7 Client with a sound card. Is that possible and how can I accomplish this ?

I am using Windows Server 2008R2 with the latest Patches on the Host Maschines

You would need USB Redirection, and for that you need RemoteFX, and webcam support is limited.

Audio Redirection is possible between client and Windows 7 VDI workstation when using RemoteFX and RDS.

But to Enable the RemoteFX function for USB Redirection, you must meet the RemoteFX requirements

1. SLAT capable processor in the Server
2. Supported GPU for RemoteFX

if you do not have the above you will not be able to enable RemoteFX, and USB Redirection, but Audio Redirection should function between client and vdi workstation.

Just to understand, I have 2 Windows 2008 Servers 2008R2 with hyper-v I need to start the Windows Audio Service on the hyper-V host itself and then when I do an RDP to any child machine I got sound correct ? Just to point out I only got 2 physical machines with Hyper-V and virtual machines for each student.

One last thing. Can I also use this workaround to use a webcam on a virtual machine ?
