Hi,

does someone knows about the abibility to install the latest version of SLES 12 x64 in the Hyper-V environment of MS Windows 2012R2?
If I create a new VM in HyperV, I can choose the SLES 11 x64, only.

thx for a reply

According to both SUSE[1] and Microsoft[2], SLES12 is supported as a
guest running in Hyper-V on Windows 2012 R2.

Not knowing Hyper-V in detail check that you are using the latest code
as with VMware you need to update their ESXi to latest version for it
know about later operating systems.

If you do choose the "SLES 11 x64" option do you get to specify which
ISO too boot from? SLES12 has similar hardware requirements to SLES11 so
you should be okay choosing that.

HTH.

thx for reply.

Well, SLES12 is running in Hyper-V environment. One problem I have detected: the Hyper-V manager still showing, that an update is needed of the integration services. In the properties of the VM running Suse, all integration services (e.g. timesource, guest, ...) are enabled. Maybe I have to update it with a newer version of these services. But I don't know how and where to get the latest version of it.
