Debian 8 LIS supported features RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With the release of Debian 8 jessie, what are the supported features in Hyper-V?

    Will this be the first distro with a long term release that supports all integration features?

    A side question, why is it that centos 7 does not support trim but all other features?

  • Since Debian 8.0 is based on the 3.16 kernel, a lot of recent LIS features are built-in. We will be updating https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn614985.aspx to indicate which features are included soon, but for now the LIS features included should be equivalent to Ubuntu 14.10.

    Booting a fresh Debian 8 on Hyper-V, I see the following modules when I lsmod: hv_utils, hv_netsc, hv_storvsc, hv_vmbus. Under vmbus you will even see the emulated graphics, keyboard, and mouse as hid_hyperv and hyperv_fb.

    Integration features and improvements continue to be developed and integrated into a lot of Linux distributions, including Debian, and a lot of those features are coming from the upstream kernel.

  • Hi,

  • Use the hyperv-daemons package from jessie-backports:

    https://packages.debian.org/jessie-backports/hyperv-daemons

  • You need to add the backport repository and install kernel 4.2 and the hyper-v deamons, check this out: http://wiki.lenux.org/debian-jessie-hyper-v/
