Unfortunately, there is no Windows Ceph client. The Nova Hyper-V driver only supports iSCSI, Fibre Channel and SMB Cinder backends (which already covers most of them).

"I did a lot of testing including to attach a ceph backend cinder-volume to a Windows VM on Hyperv and worked fine" - high chance is that you were actually using a backend other than Ceph. There is no upstream Cinder driver that exports Ceph volumes through iSCSI (although that's possible, using tgt or lio, for example).
