Anyone successfully install Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a Microserver N36L,N40L,N54L ?

Yes it's compatible with R2 and VMware ESXi and has an extra network port and it's Intel based.

I bought the tp link one from maplins. Was full height. Emailed tp-link the same day asking for a low profile bracket. They sent one and it got delivered next day for free. Great service and fully works with 2012 r2 out of the box.

Interesting the response I got from TP-Link was:



Thanks very much for choosing TP-LINK products, much appreciated.

Regarding your enquiry, I am sorry, but the product in different area may be different, we don’t provide the half height bracket in this product in uk market.

Sorry about this. Wish you a nice day.

I disabled the onboard nic and r2 installed with this $30 card from Newegg. Also at Amazon, i think.


The ST1000SPEX2 PCIe Gigabit Ethernet


Plus, the card includes both full profile and low profile/half-height installation brackets for installation in a wide range of computer/server chassis.
