Oracle 9i on Hyper V ?

We currently have an Oracle 9i server (6 year old hardware) running on Windows 2003.
Over the past several months, we have moved 90% of our server to Hyper V.  

The last two server are (Exchange 2007 and ) Oracle 9i.  Can this be run on Windows 2012 Hyper V cluster?

Oracle only (Can't speak to Exchange).

I don't see why not.

I can't speak specifically for 9i but I've been running 10g through 12c on HyperV 2008 for some time.  I just recently moved to 2012.  All VMs with instances are running fine. *knocks on wood*

Suppose I should also point out that if you ever wanted to upgrade Oracle to a supported version, Oracle Support recently announced that they will support HyperV VMs starting with 2012.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I can't speak for the asker but I believe they were talking about running Oracle and Exchange in a guest VM running on a 2012 HyperV Host.  I have to assume the Guest VM OS will support Exchange 2007.

Ref. Exchange.....I would only throw it on a Windows 2003 server OS But hosted on an Windows 2012 Datacenter......

Ref. Oracle......How do I stand license wise.....have they not gone down the core router instead of the processor router from years back.

I cannot talk about licensing.  I also doubt Oracle will talk to you about it since 9i has been desupported for years.

My gut feeling is that as long as the VM doesn't exceed what the physical server has, you should be good.  Then again, I'm not a lawyer nor do I work for Oracle...
