Enable Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012

2012/11/09

Configuring Hyper-V on a Windows Server 2012 is really simple and straight forward. Its a very similar process on Windows Server 2008 R2 too. If you want to do this on virtual machine then you need to setup the VMware Workstation so it hides the fact a hypervisor is already running from the Windows Server. See my previous post here on how to do this

Start Server Manager, under Roles and Features choose Tasks and select Add Roles and Features

This starts up a the Add Roles and Features wizard and hit Next

Choose a Role based installation

image

Choose the server where the role will be installed

image

Choose the hyper-v role and click Next

image

I will allow the installation to add the features needed for the hyper-v role

image

After the features have been setup we will configure a virtual switch

image

I’m going to configure hyper-v for Live Migration

image

I will accept the default settings for the location of the virtual machines, you can change this to whatever you wish.

Click next then click Install and the Hyper-V role will be installed. Note that this process does require the server to be restarted for the installation to complete
