No hyper-v daemons available in 22.04?

ba flag

I have been looking for quite some time for a way to download the Hyper-v Daemons in Ubuntu 22.04 server as it seems my install did not come with any. The last thing I found was a microsoft guide on how to enable them and such, but their command to show all the available daemons was empty- even as super user. Even using systemctl to check if any are running I just get Unit hv-vss-daemon.service could not be found.

I'm really at a loss as to why these weren't pre-installed, or even how to install them.

Really what I am trying to do here is back up my hyper-v machines, which is working fine for any windows VMs that I have but not working at all for ANY of our Ubuntu VMs.

There are no standalone Hyper-V daemons for Ubuntu, you need to install the custom Hyper-V kernel from Microsoft:

sudo apt-get install linux-azure

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
