Windows Server 2012 R2 guest on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V?

    Question

  • Hi,

    does Microsoft offical support to run a "Windows Server 2012 R2" as guest on a "Windows Server 2008 R2" Hyper-V?

    I could find only Information about "Server 2012" as guest.

    Thanks.

  • No, this is not supported.  We only document supported guest operating systems - and Windows Server 2012 is the last operating system to be supported on Windows Server 2008 R2.

    You might want to re-read that article. The OP was asking about 2012 R2 guests, which do not appear on that article.
