Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 & 2012 R2 not available in "Browse Products A - Z" search field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In MSDN Subscription > "Subscriber Downloads" area, Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 & 2012 R2 are not available in "Browse Products A - Z" search field.  Look at the image below:

    You can see that it's not in "H" nor in "M".  The only way to get to Hyper-V server 2012 is through the search field, if that's working correctly.

    Please correct this.

    TIA

    I'm talking about the circled control here:

    OIC.  Yeah, this "Search" field is working now.  It didn't work several months ago (maybe something was broken in website? That seems to be the case quite often) so I was not able to find pure Hyper-V server ISO.  So I had to consume a Windows Server license just for pure Hyper-V role.  What a pity.

    FYI, I personally use both controls (aka fields).  I would use the search control first because it always returns too many results, but that also lets me see what alphabet(s) to use in A-Z control.  For example, some products have to begin with "Microsoft" while some are not and the result is more accurate.

    Thanks.

  • thanks for the post Horinius.  Hyper-v server is now a part of the Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 families, and can be found under those items in the A-Z browse control.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    But Hyper-V Server is different from Hyper-V role enabled inside Windows Server!  The former is free and thus does not consume license while the latter requires a license for Windows Server.

    I thus don't think it's the answer unless I'm wrong.

    @__Temp123456, I see that you are a member since 2014-03-10.  We'd appreciate a lot if you do NOT mark any reply as answer without thorough thinking and thorough understanding.  Thanks.

  • I'm not quite following you Horinius.... are you saying there are two different products we have hosted called Hyper-V? or are you saying in your opinion Hyper-V doesn't belong with Windows Server?    This categorization is why we have (and rely mostly on) the text search, so you can find what you want regardless of what product its categorized with.

    Is this file the one you're looking for?:

  • I'm not quite following you Horinius.... are you saying there are two different products we have hosted called Hyper-V?

    Subjectively/In my opinion, the answer is "yes", they are different.  The answer is what I had written earlier:

    Hyper-V Server is different from Hyper-V role enabled inside Windows Server

    or are you saying in your opinion Hyper-V doesn't belong with Windows Server?

    CF previous paragraph.... for Hyper-V role, it's a part of Windows Server.  If it's on its own, it's not really Windows Server. QED.

    This categorization is why we have (and rely mostly on) the text search, so you can find what you want regardless of what product its categorized with.

    I'm not sure what you meant in this sentence...

    However, if you (had) looked carefully at my screenshot at the beginning, you can see that there are Hyper-V Server 2008 (and R2) but not Hyper-V Server 2012 (and R2).

    Is this file the one you're looking for?:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/hh442898#FileId=54544

    Yes, and it cannot be found in the A-Z browse field.

    Also take a look at these:

  • I'm not sure what you meant in this sentence...

    I'm talking about the circled control here:

    If you search on "Hyper-V" all versions of hyper-v will return.  Here's a URL for that search: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/hh442898#searchTerm=Hyper-v&ProductFamilyId=0&Languages=en&PageSize=10&PageIndex=0&FileId=0

    We very rarely hear from people who have issues with the alphabetical browse or the product category associations, and its interesting to hear from a customer who uses these controls.  

    We don't have any plans to change this at this time, but thanks for your feedback about the product categorization for Hyper-V.  Please use the product search box to track down the product you're looking for among the many thousands we have available.

    Also, i'm not able to remove the 'proposed as answer' from that weird account.  I'm getting a strange error... so just ignore it.

    Thanks!
    Mike
