  • Hi RKART,

    Welcome to post in our forum.

    Regarding your issue, it is supported to deploy SFB 2015 on windows server 2016 Hyper-V, and you can also deploy SFB server 2015 on windows server 2012/2012 R2.

    The following article is about Hyper-V server 2016, please refer to

    Hope this reply helpful to you.

  • Hi

    There is no statement from Microsoft which says either Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V Host or Windows Server 2016 OS supported for Operating system.

    however there should not be any issue while deploying the Hyper-V Host on 2016, however deploying SFB 2015 Should be on WIN 2012 R2.
