Cloud Connector edition don't allow me to install it on Server 2012 r2 datacenter edition evaluation RRS feed

  • Question

  • as the title, we're trying to install CCE following all advice from Microsoft... planning is the key word here... downloaded datacenter edition evaluation copy and followed all the steps. issue certs and preparing a domain online E3 enterprise license but when issuing the command for create the instances, we got this horrible error even when we're 99% secure we're using a 

    copy of server dc2k12 evaluation: 

    Cloud Connector cannot be deployed on this server. The Host server must be running Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter
    or Standard Edition. Please restart the deployment on a Host server running Windows Server 2012 R2.
    At C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\CloudConnector\Internal\MtCommon.ps1:652 char:5
    +     throw (Get-MtMessage -FormatKey "InternalCommon_Error_HostIsNotWinServer2012 ...
    +     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : OperationStopped: (Cloud Connector...Server 2012 R2.:String) [], RuntimeException

       ws Server 2012 R2 Datacenter or Standard Edition. Please restart the deployment on a Host server running Windows S
      erver 2012 R2.

    question is: do we need to get or buy a license key of datacenter edition even for a trial of CCE, or is there something we're missing?

    another question: which exactly version of datacenter edition is needed knowing that the only difference between standard and datacenter installation is the cd-key?

    thanks you in advance.
