Suggestions on a Cirros like test image

So for my KVM nodes I can always spin up cirros and do some quick checks on key services. For hyper-v what could be a solid ultra simple corollary? Unsure if Nano will have a licensing model to allow for that type of usage. I found an old request from apilotti in 2013 on the Cirros backlog, but no action so not optimistic there.

I know I can use the full Cloudbase images, but they are quite large so they make for a lengthy qualification run. Seeing what others may be using as a micro image.

Thinking publicly available would be an ubuntu cloud image which will have the hyper-v support. And I can likely create my own nano vhd for my rough testing?

You can use a cirros image with LIS drivers for Hyper-V from here:

Or you can create a Nano image using these scripts:

Nice! I didn't know the Cirros image even existed. That's a huge help since it is similar to what I already have for KVM. Reading through their feature request I know it isn't as straightforward as a couple modules. Maybe they could make a branch and accept your pulls officially though.

Nano image building isn't the problem... more the current licensing stuff etc. Hopefully they will toss the community a bone so you can make an "eval" copy for Nano as well.
