Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Hyper-V host RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    as you know, with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials it's possible to activate Hyper-V role. I found a manual to configurate the auto-deployment of the 2012 R2 Essentials VM but what is to do if I want to setup 2012 R2 Essentials as Hyper-V host with the RTM iso?

    I removed the Essentials role, but after the needed restart, the assistant to configurate Essentials role starts again. This is also Happening, when I already have activated the Hyper-V role.

    I know, I also could use 2012 R2 Standard or Datacenter - but we have many customers that are only want to buy a license for 2012 R2 Essentials and use it as Hyper-V host and not the Hyper-V Server 2012 R2.

    What's the solution when I don't want to adjust the iso as described here:
