Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 in same failover cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it still not possible to mix versions of Windows Server in the same failover cluster or can I join a Windows Server 2012 R2 server to a Windows Server 2012 failover cluster as part of upgrading the whole cluster to Windows Server 2012 R2?

    You cannot mix but you can upgrade w/o downtime. See the upgrade matrix here:
