How to create Hyper-V virtual server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Do anyone know how to create hyper-v virtual server? I need pre-requisities , requirements and steps to create hyper-v virtual server. When I am searching from net, i am getting only about creating virtual machines in hyper-v but nothing about creation of hyper-v virtual server itself. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • It's really simple:

    1. Install Server 2012 R2 on a physical machine,
    2. Install Hyper-V role and its supporting management tools (auto-selected)

    That's it..

    After reboot, use Hyper-V Manager to create and manage VMs..

  • And the pre-requisites are just what Server 2012 needs.

    From there you need to look at:

    1. How many VMs you will run

    2. The HDD space they will require

    3.The RAM they will consume

    Then you can purchase or upgrade to adequate hardware ;)
