No suitable device found: No device found for connection CentOS

No suitable device found, No device found for connection was the error I faced. I encountered this issue while I was migrating a Virtual machine created and managed in PHPVBOX. I converted this virtual machine using the PHPVBox utility and wanted to use this on Hyper-V. It took me around two hours to figure out what was the actual problem. The problem was “There was no integration tools installed for Linux on Guest Operating System”.¬†Integration tools are required for the installation and configuration of different devices like mouse, keyboard and network. I installed these tools and created the Ethernet connection again and rebooted the virtual machine on hyper-v and it worked!!!!. Under given is the method,¬†how I did this:

  1. Converted the Virtual machine from phpvbox and registered on my hyper-v manager
  2. Download “Linux Integration Disk” for Hyper-V from Microsoft
  3. Mount the ISO Image file on guest operating system
  4. Run under Linux Integration Services CD’s RHEL63 Directory.
  5. Create IFCFG-ETH0 file. vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
  6. Insert following lines DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes
  7. SAVE and QUIT
  8. Edit or Create Network File vi /etc/sysconfig/network
  9. Insert following lines NETWORKING=yes HOSTNAME=Server FQDN
  10. Restart the virtual machine and you will be good to go!!
