The Live Migration feature in Hyper-V allows you to migrate a running virtual machine between hosts with almost no downtime. Initially, Live Migration in Hyper-V was only available as part of a Windows failover cluster with CSV shared storage. Starting with Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V Live Migration doesn’t require a cluster and shared storage. To migrate VMs, Hyper-V hosts need to be connected using a fast shared Ethernet network.

In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at how to install Hyper-V Linux Integration Services on popular Linux distros – CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu.
