Exchane 2013 on Hyper V - 2012 R2 questions - 500pnts
Posted on 2014-01-28
I need to setup a exchange 2013 server for 50 users, I need to do this fairly quickly and the server will be place for quite a few years. At the moment we are running 365 online but we need to move the exchange server back in house.
I know that exchange 2013 won't work with 2012 R2 until exchange 2013 sp1 is released, but also am told you get two 2008 R2 licences to run on 2012 R2 as hyper-v boxes so.
1.) Do I tell my boss we have to wait for Exchange server Sp1 and run it off the 2012 box directly?
2.) Or do I installed 2012 and exchange 2013 via hyper-v installed on one of 2008 R2 licenses.
3.) And if I run exchange 2013 on a hyper-v box and install in on to a system with removable disk can I take the disk and run the vhd from anther 2012 box with Hyper V as disaster recovery backup?
