Hello,

I upgraded one of my vsphere environments to 5.0 U3 today to get support for MS windows server 2012 R2. But I can't see the OS in dropdown menu when creating the VM. I do see 2012, but no sign of 2012 R2.  Is this OK?

Thank you

Even with 5.5, and vCenter 5.5 you do not see a Windows Server 2012 R2, it only shows Windows Server 2012 (64 -bit).

Windows Server 2012 R2 is supported as a Guest OS on 5.0 U3, see

HCL here - http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=software&testConfig=16

Just use the Windows Server 2012 (64 -bit) (template in the wizard)

Alright. Thanks for clearing that up. I just wanted to be totally sure.

Thanks

It does not even appear yet, in the vSphere Client 5.5 or Web Client 5.5!
