HV_KVP_DAEMON(8)	FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual	      HV_KVP_DAEMON(8)

NAME
     hv_kvp_daemon -- Hyper-V Key Value	Pair Daemon

SYNOPSIS
     hv_kvp_daemon [-dn]

DESCRIPTION
     The hv_kvp_daemon daemon provides the ability to store, retrieve, modify
     and delete	Key Value pairs	for FreeBSD guest partitions running on	Hyper-
     V.

     Hyper-V allows administrators to store custom metadata in the form	of Key
     Value pairs inside	the FreeBSD guest partition.  Administrators can use
     Windows Powershell	scripts	to add,	read, modify and delete	such Key Value
     pairs.

     The hv_kvp_daemon accepts Key Value pair management requests from the
     hv_utils(4) driver	and performs the actual	metadata management on the
     file-system.

     The same daemon and driver	combination is also used to set	and get	IP
     addresses from a FreeBSD guest.

     The set functionality is particularly useful when the FreeBSD guest is
     assigned a	static IP address and is failed	over from one Hyper-V host to
     another.  After failover, Hyper-V uses the	set IP functionality to	auto-
     matically update the FreeBSD guest's IP address to	its original static
     value.

     On	the other hand,	the get	IP functionality is used to update the guest
     IP	address	in the Hyper-V management console window.

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	     Run as regular process instead of a daemon	for debugging purpose.

     -n	     Generate debugging	output.

HISTORY
     Support for Hyper-V in the	form of	ports was first	released in September
     2013.  The	daemon was developed through a joint effort between Citrix
     Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Network Appliance Inc..

AUTHORS
     FreeBSD support for hv_kvp_daemon was first added by Microsoft BSD
     Integration Services Team <bsdic@microsoft.com>.
