Installing HyperV Core server 2012 on specific hardware (HP DL380 G6)
Posted on 2013-10-25
I am just starting with virtualization - so far I have installed few 2008 R2 servers with HyperV role enabled and I was successful with setting up and running vm's of different sort on them.
As a host OS I was using full version of MS 2008 R2 server, but there are limitations in memory etc.
Now I attempted to install the MS Hyperv Server 2012, and since there is no GUI it looks much more challenging.
The hardware that I am using is HP DL380 G6 - my question is if I should install any of the drivers and applications that I would normally install on the HP server? It seems that all of the hardware installed automatically (although I do not know how to check it - no GUI)
Next I will attempt to install VMware and I have the same question - is installing driver an issue and how should I approach it?
