How do I add sound support to Windows 7+ VMs on Xen?
Posted on 2014-07-21
I am using XenServer 6.2 using the prebuilt ISO's from citrix. I need to have a sound device installed in windows in order to get audio applications to work. How do I add a fake software only sound card in XenServer? On VMWare this is fairly trivial to do so I assume this is doable in Xen.
Looking for a configuration for Xen or other software I can install via yum to solve the problem.
Solutions I would like to avoid:
Adding physical hardware to the physical machine, doesn't scale.
Relying exclusively on Remote Desktop for sound.
