C'ant install remotefx on Hyper-V core 2012

    Question

  • Hello,

    I had a 2008-R2 hyper-v core with remote Fx installed and working. I upgraded to Hyper-V core 2012 (from fresh install). I have no success in having Geforce GTX 560 been recongnized in the Hyper-v management console. I know this board is not supported to do that but I installed the driver using pnputil with success (either Geforce W8x64 or quadro S2012x64). Hyper-V console still say there is not graphic board installed.

    Compared to 2008 R2 core, I understood that nothing speical has to be done to enable hardware remote FX. 

    What did I do wrong: Is it simply because Hyper-V core 2012 does not allow remote FX 3D or is it that I did not enabled a service or something else ?

    On the other hand every thing is working eventhe soft directx11 on the Windows 8 VM machines.

  • Hi,

    Remote Desktop Services requires that the Windows Server 2012 operating system be installed. There are no additional hardware or software requirements for running Remote Desktop Services.

    There are several hardware requirements that must be met when you deploy a RemoteFX server:

    • SLAT-enabled processor. The processor on the RemoteFX server must support Second-Level      Address Translation (SLAT).
    • GPU. At least one graphics processing unit (GPU) that is capable of supporting RemoteFX is required on the RemoteFX server. The GPU driver must support DirectX 11.

      

    Ensure that you download and install the latest driver for the   graphics card that is installed on the RemoteFX server. Do not rely on the   graphics card driver that is included with Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Your graphics card driver may not support Windows Server 2012, since Windows Server 2012 is just related, you may contact its vendor to get the latest driver.

  • Hi,

    Sure, I think you can contact graphics card vendor to check whether your card compatible with Windows Server 2012, and whether they have new card driver.

  • First thanks for the answer,

    So I understand, It should work on Hyper-V core 2012.

    • I checked CPU (I7-2600 2nd generation) SLAT using coreinfo: When hyper-v not running, coreinfo -v marks SLAT (EPT) as supported, when hyper-v running (hypervisor is running) SLAT marked as non supported (I suppose this is normal as seen on documentation)
    • About Nvidia driver, I tried quite many with no sucess.

    So my understanding is that I should wait for next Nvidia driver.

    Best regards
