Creating a virtual desktop collection

I am trying to create a virtual desktop collection from a template (The template is Server 2012 standard edition) created in hyper v but am getting the following error


"The virtual desktop template does not meet the provisioning requirements."

Any ideas?

Basically you have to use unmanaged clients with the server os and it works.

Really cant understand why Microsoft wont allow desktop OS on the SPLA licencing model.

How does that work with SPLA licencing though?

i guess i'm curious why would you do vdi with a server os?

As i have been told that spla licencing is only through server os and you have to skin the server os to be like the desktop os.

correct
the only thing i can think of to make this work is go for a different license model to use a desktop os with vdi - which of course may not be an option in your situation
in looking around there is a fair amount of discussion around lack of licensing clarity with desktop os vdi with spla and no direct workaround

unless someone else here has a suggestion...

After much research I found that you can create the collection with server os but have to use unmanaged.
