Server 2012 R2 Upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have Server 2012 Host with two VMs (DC and FS) and I am going to install a third one which obvious should be a Server 2012 R2.

    My questions are

    Can I install Server 2012 R2 guest on Server 2012 Host?

    If yes, what the benefits would I get if upgrade my Host to Windows Srver2012 R2 first?

    Thank you in advance,

    Alex

  • according to http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh831531 , 2012 r2 is supported as a guest operating system on a 2012 host. the site also includes links to changes to hyper-v in 2012 r2. a feature which was quite useful for us is for example the option to export a vm without the need to shut it down.
