Windows Server 2012 R2 is officially available from last week. What are the plans for 2012R2 Hyper-V Support on UCS platform /B200M3 servers/? Also Nexus1000V for SCVMM 2012R2?

Hi there,

I was just wondering if there was an update for when Server 2012 R2 qualification is? Particularly for the ability to configure HyperV SRIOV --> enabling the "Cisco Vmfex Switch Extension".

We have Windows Server 2012 R2 (x64) configured as Hyper-V Servers running a Cisco UCS. We use Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Servers with a VIC 1240 (including a Port Expander). It works just fine. I have also succesfully tested VM-FEX and SR-IOV.

I must add that there are only 2012 drivers, although they work properly. In case you have a FlexPod and use iSCSI. NetApp does not have a DSM driver (MPIO) to support 2012 R2 yet, so you have to use the Microsoft DSM driver.

I am also waiting for Cisco and NetApp to release updated drivers that officially support Windows Server 2012 R2.

I hope this information is usefull to you. Please let me know if you have any questions.
