Overview

This module installs Hyper-V tools on Linux guests.

Usage

This module takes no options. To use it, simply do

include hyperv

Compatibility

Hyper-V compatibility between distributions is... interesting.

RHEL

RHEL includes all related EL distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc. RHEL5 had patchy support for Hyper-V so this module only works on RHEL6 and RHEL7. See Microsoft's documentation

Fedora

RHEL is derived from Fedora so compatibility is the same, and Fedora has supported Hyper-V for ages. This module only supports Fedora 21 and newer, because 20 and older are no longer receiving security updates and should not be used.

Debian

Debian 7 and 8 support Hyper-V natively. This module will work with Debian but it won't actually do anything. See Microsoft's documentation

Ubuntu

Ubuntu has supported Hyper-V since 12.04. This module installs some extras. See Microsoft's documentation.

Summary

These distros work and are supported by this module.
