SBS 2011 Standard comes to a halt every 150 hours RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I Have a SBS 2011 license with a physical and a virtual key.

    I installated the physical machine with as less functions as possible,

    it only runs HYPER-V in workgroup mode,

    just to have as much memory and performance left for the virtual machine.

    The virual machine is also installed but as it should be.

    Every about 150 hours the physical machine comes to a halt with event id 1074

    referring to SILSVC.EXE  telling that there is a license conflict (on the physical machine)

    Must I make active directory and the DSN active to solve this shutting down,

    or can i simply turn off the silsvc.exe service ?

    regards

  • You can't use SBS to HOST HyperV
    You can use a standard server license and install just the core

  • In addition SBS has to be a domain controller and can't run in workgroup mode. Han has a terribly botched setup.

    Solved the problem,

    The first installation was the first part of SBS with just windows running and HYPER-V, on this point you do not need the have a domain installation. The second installation was a FULL Windows SBS in the virtual machine. 

    Where I went wrong is that on the new release of SBS 2010 you can not do this setup, as you could with SBS 2008. The license server is shutting everything down. So i have a Windows 2008 Standaard installation on the physical machine and this wil work of cource. It is just another license to pay for the customer.....

  • Hyper-V Server is free.
    Tuesday, October 16, 2012 9:09 AM
  • SBS2003 was not supported as Hyper V guest

    SBS 2008 and SBS 2011 both are suported as Hyper V guests

    SBS ALL VERSIONS have never supported acting as a Hyper V Host

    SBS (all versions) MUST be the First Server in the AD Forest/Domain (meaning AD must be installed) and must hold ALL FSMO roles

    Failure to do so is a: a violation of licensing b: will result in the shut downs on a regular basis as you found.
