  • What version of Debian?  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn614985.aspx lists the versions supported and which already have the integration services as part of the distribution.

  • The downloadable Linux Integration Services are intended for use only with Red Hat, CentOS, and the Red Hat-Compatible version of the kernel in Oracle Linux. For Debian, Linux Integration Services are inherited from the upstream kernel (I think stable is based on the 3.16 kernel, and unstable is based on the 4.0.8 kernel). Most of what you want is already there, but on Debian, the daemon processes aren't packaged for use.

    Are you having troubles with your Debian installation?
