Description Michal Skrivanek 2016-11-25 09:26:27 UTC
We need to add virtio-rng driver installation to guest tools iso for all supported Windows versions.
Currently the device is added but shows up as unknown device and the driver needs to be installed from web

Similar downstream changes needed, feel free to open a follow-up bug

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1337101 +++

RHEL 7.1+ transparently supports improvements to entropy of random numbers. It should be safe to enable it by default for all 7.1+ guests

See http://rhelblog.redhat.com/2015/03/09/red-hat-enterprise-linux-virtual-machines-access-to-random-numbers-made-easy/ for more details

this needs driver installation on Windows

Comment 4 Petr Matyáš 2017-01-26 12:56:16 UTC
Verified on virtio-win-1.9.0-3

Although only iso image contains this driver, floppy drive does not.
