Installing a base Debian in Hyper-V
There is nothing too tricky about installing a base Debian instance in Microsoft Hyper-V, but I have compiled a short training lesson which will step you through the process. The goal is to provide a very bare bones Debian install without any superfluous services being loaded. This enables us to only install needed services later as we build upon the image to provide other services such as HTTP, J2EE, SQL or other technologies.
The attached video is about 21 minutes long. Full install was approximately 15 minutes if I simply performed the install with no voice over narration or pauses to explain why I made the choices I did.
Future training sessions will follow for installing a variety of other services such as Jira, OTRS, proxy services, OpsView and Nagios among others.
