Series: Hyper-v, not in my Datacenter part2

Guest OS

After you installed your hypervisor you want to virtualize your physical servers on it. When doing the research for my presentation I was very surprised to find some strange limitations in which guest are supported with Hyper-V. Can you believe that not all Windows Server versions are supported? Well neither could I.

The guest OS support of Hyper-V:

  • Windows 2000 Server is only supported with SP4 and 1 CPU.
  • Windows 2003 Server is only supported with SP2 and 1 or 2 CPUs.
  • Windows 2008 Server is supported with 1, 2 and 4 CPUs.
  • and there is Linux support for SUSE Linux Server 10 sp1 / sp2 with only 1 CPU.

This does look quite reasonable at first glance, because these are current versions. True, but when looking at the ESX environment I work in now, we would not be able to virtualize as many servers as we have running on ESX right now
