How to Install Hyper-V Linux Integration Services on Debian

First, install the package

apt-get install hyperv-daemons


Next, make sure the modules are configured to be included in the inirial RAM filesystem

echo "" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "# Hyper-V Modules" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "hv_vmbus" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "hv_storvsc" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "hv_blkvsc" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "hv_netvsc" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "hv_balloon" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "hv_utils" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules


Finally, update the initramfs and reboot

update-initramfs -u reboot
