2012 upgrade to 2012r2 with HV-replication in place.

TopCat-007 used Ask the Experts™
I need to upgrade one 2012 hv-host to 2012r2, it’s replicating with another 2012 hv-host which I don’t have a license to upgrade; question is will upgrading just one of the hosts to R2 cause any problems?  I’m pretty sure it won’t but I’m in need of conformation..

many thanks 🙏

It certainly won't be supported and I'm pretty sure that the hyper-V version between the two wouldn't be the same. Either do them both to ensure stability or don't do it at all. I'd not consider it to be fair.



I found out that this would result in not being able to replicate back from the 2012r2 server.
