I want to change from ESXi 5.5 to Hyper-V Server 2012 R2.

 

Does anyone run Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 on their N54L?

Do you mean Server 2012R2 with the Hyper-V role?

Well, then has anyone installed Server 2012R2 with the Hyper-V role? Edited by riahc3

Hyper-V Server is more at home in an AD environment. In a workgroup, you will need to tweak several things before you're able to manage it remotely.

 

Windows Server with the Hyper-V role is more straightforward, with the GUI and all, but you pay the price for the larger resource footprint.

Tweak what settings?

 

Also, at my work, a external party from a external copany certified both in Hyper-V and VMware, told us that the gap between Server Core and ESXi is getting smaller and for SOHO, its not worth it. He also told me that, again, for a SOHO, the difference between Server Core and WS012R2 with just the GUI and the Hyper-V role it is not worth it. Sure, there is going to be a larger resource footprint but its not really worth it.

As I've said, Hyper-V Server is not Workgroup-friendly and for it to even start to play nice, you'll have to do several things: http://nearlydeaf.com/?p=1149

 

But if you've got the time and the know-how, it will be worth the effort to make it work. Especially since it's free.

I use server 2012 R2 with the hyper-v role in a workgroup and it works really well. There are some changes you need to make in order to get remote management but I found the hvremote script from msdn worked a treat.

I run it on my nl54 with 8gb ram.
