Technically, Debian can run on Hyper-V without hyperv-daemons package.
But it lucks important features like volume shadow copy service (VSS).
And, about hyperv-daemons package is same situation as Azure, if Microsoft
doesn't officially endorse Debian as support platform because of not
providing hyperv-daemons package, many managers/clients doesn't allow
to use Debian as a part of their systems due to luck of support that
compared to other distributions.
It's sad, really sad.
So I thinks we should care such situations, and try to improve it by adding
hyperv-daemons package to stable (it means for production system).
Adding hyperv-daemon package to stable is
- it can solve political issue (support/endorse)
- it improve managing VMs backup operation (at least)
- no harm for existing packages/systems
- low cost to backport it
Please think about it.
If we can add it to stable, then I'll ask microsoft to update their documents
