sql 2008 on hyper-v virtual machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having problems getting SQL server to install on a Hyper-V virtual machine.

    Host is a full install of 2008 enterprise server R2 with Hyper-V on an Acer AR380 with dual quad-core xeon processors.

    Application server is virtualized install of same.

    I capture the DVD drive to the virtual machine, insert the dvd, and instruct the system to run the install from the DVD.

    It installs perfectly -- on the host server.

    What am I missing???

  • I finally got hold of my guru - it appears I needed to go to the local computer anf find the dvd there to run it. I knew it had to be something simple and stupid.
