Hyper-V Requirements for ISO Image Files Used in Self-Service

When self-service is implemented in a Hyper-V environment, additional configuration is required to enable self-service users to use ISO images.

The requirements are different for a stand-alone library server than for a library server that also serves as a Hyper-V host.

Hyper-V Library Server-If a library server that stores the ISO image files also is running Hyper-V, the following NTFS permissions are required:


” Give the machine accounts of all other Hyper-V servers Read permission on the library share and in the NTFS folder permissions”

” Add the Network Service account under which the Hyper-V Image Management Service is running to the library share and NTFS permissions. For Windows Server 2008, the default account is Network Service. “


Stand-Alone Library Server-If the library server that stores the ISO image files is not running Hyper-V, the following configuration updates are required:


” Give the machine accounts of all Hyper-V servers Read permission on the library share and to the NTFS folder permissions.

” Configure constrained delegation between the library server and each remote Hyper-V host”

On each Hyper-V server computer object, add the machine account for each library server to the list of services that that Hyper-V server is trusted to delegate credentials to.

You will find these settings on the Delegation tab of the Hyper-V computer object Properties dialog box in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). To make this change, you must have administrative rights in AD DS.
