Hyper-V and Server compatibility tool

    Question

  • Hello everyone, 

    I need to find out with you guys if its possible to run 2 Hyper-V environments in the same LAN, the LAN runs 1 hardware cluster and 2 more hardware servers. If so, are there any risks? Also, I like your suggestions on a hardware compatibility software that I can test if my hardware is suitable running Win Server 2019. 

    Many thanks for your help.

  • Hi,

    Yes it's fully possible to run multiple Hyper-V environments on the same LAN (Local Area Network), what are you going to run on these Hyper-V environments?


    For the certified hardware you can check the link below:

  • Hi Leon, 

    Thank you for responding your help again. Following your question, the answer is bellow:

    Yes it's fully possible to run multiple Hyper-V environments on the same LAN (Local Area Network), what are you going to run on these Hyper-V environments?

    All will be running Windows Server VMs in different versions (2008-2019). We also have WS 2003 running, which I hope WS 2019 is able to support guest OS VM. I know Microsoft does not list this 2003 OS, at least will be good to test it.

  • I think a Windows Server 2003 "can" run as a guest virtual machine, but do note that this is an end-of-life (EOL) product that is not supported anymore.

    So one risk here would be the unsupported operating system as you probably already know, also note about Windows Server 2008 R2 EOL coming soon.

    Server 2003 is no longer supported regardless of the installation scenario. Will it run? Most likey yes.

  • Hi Leon, 

    Thank you, and yes aware for the EOL support. It is part of the plan doing a major upgrade this year anyway.
