Upgrading Server 2008 Hyper-v to server 2008 R2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently running computer Network support in south florida and have many customers wanting to upgrade from server 2008 hyper-v to server 2008 R2 Hyper-v and wanted to know if there were any difficulties in upgrading Microsoft Server 2008 to Microsoft Server 2008 R2, and any Softwares such as SQL, Microsoft Office, Sage MAS90 or Great Plains that would have difficulty upgrading?

  • I have not done many of these upgrades, but I have done a couple and did not have any issues.

    The software should not be an issues as it is still running in the virtual machine with the same OS as before the Hyper-V upgrade, unless you are running the other software on the base machine, there may be issues with the software supporting Windows 2008 R2 and you will have to check each product.
