Anyone using Hyper-V Server 2012 with WHS 2011

Have any of you noticed the CPU Power Management changing after your install of Hyper-V? This seems to be an open issue with MS for MS Server 2012 and Win8 after installing Hyper-V. Look at Task Manager CPU readings and Resource Monitor... notice anything different?

I just started playing around with N40L server i received. I have the standard driver that came with it and 2 gig of memory. I installed Hyper-v core and created 2 vm's so far. But my issue is that I need to get a bigger drivers don't know which ones that are good price for my budget and of course memory. Since I only have 2 gig it's not enough to run all more vm's ... 

 

Any suggestions where i could get the drivers and memory would be awesome. 

 

Thanks,

As I posted in the other thread, you need to check out this thread: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5190-microserver-hardware-links/. You should upgrade you RAM to at least 8GB, which is pretty easy to do. Upgrading to 16GB is more difficult because you have to watch out for RAM compatibility issues.

 

BTW, cross posting in multiple threads is likely to get you fewer responses, not more.

It's a known "issue", but I'm not so sure it's actually an issue.

 

There seems to be some theories that hte host CPU is effectively being virtualized, and that's why you're not seeing SpeedStep working.

(And I've seen posts to this effect elsewhere).

 

I guess the best way to measure is to use a killawatt meter and monitor the wattage.
