[Bug 1457168] Re: [Hyper-V] kvp, vrss, fcopy daemons no longer in init


Are these still in proposed? I thought this would have gone live in the
next SRU in June.

  [Hyper-V] kvp, vrss, fcopy daemons no longer in init

Status in linux-lts-utopic package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux-lts-vivid package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  hv-fcopy-daemon.conf hv-kvp-daemon.conf and hv-vss-daemon.conf are
  missing from /etc/init and therefore these critical daemons are no
  longer launched on Hyper-V installations that use linux-virtual-lts-
  utopic or other instances of the HWE kernel.

  Because Azure now uses the HWE kernel, in the generic 12.04 and 14.04
  images I see the file /etc/init/hv-kvp-daemon.conf, but executing this
  fails to start the service (because negotiation of these services is
  done in the first minute after an image is started) On the 12.04 image
  I can install the proper linux-tools-`uname -r` and linux-cloud-
  tools-`uname -r`, but it seems that perhaps the init script is not
  pointing to the correct binary.

  Normally /usr/sbin/hv_kvp_daemon is a wrapper to find
  /usr/sbin/hv_kvp_daemon-`uname -r`, but that latter file is never
  installed. On Ubuntu 12.04 I do see that "/usr/lib/linux-lts-trusty-
  tools-3.13.0-51/hv_kvp_daemon" is installed and works, but I'm not
  sure yet what's missing to get the upstart service working.

  Please correct the init scripts for the HWE kernels on 12.04 and
