Re: Hyper-V 2016

Any update on the progress of this? Little past the 90 day mark now.

Re: Hyper-V 2016

@Mikasa - Thanks for reaching out, right you are.

 

This is still a work in progress. Microsoft's changed a TON that we need to deal with, so we're taking the time to do it right.

 

 

Work with your Nutanix account team to get the forward looking details on when we project this to land, but in this public forum I'll simply say, we're working on this, trying to get this off the ground, at least in tech preview at minimum, by end of calendar Q1 2017. All dates subject to change based on internal progress, but its looking that way.

Re: Hyper-V 2016

We're keen to see Hyper-V 2016 on the Nutanix platform aswell. Is this the best place be notified for updates / Tracking progress?

Re: Hyper-V 2016

Any update for support Hyper-V 2016 & Windows Server 2016? If lets say hyper-v we still continue using 2012 version, can we put client as MS windows 2016?

Re: Hyper-V 2016

@desmondgooi This is our current setup, 2012r2 hypervisors with '16 on everything apart from SCVMM that also requers 2012 to play nice with the Nutanix platform. Runs perfectly. 

 

Very disapointed with the lack of updates regarding the 2016 Hypervisor support. We'd aimed to be up on 2016 from the get go as we foolishly belived the 90day statement when making the purchase.

Same here. Totally disappointed on support.

Any updates?

 

Looks like MS are now saying Server Core is the best option for hosting Hyper-V. So I hope engineering time has not be wasted on trying to make Nano work...

  • From these changes, customers will now see the Nano Server images shrink in size by more than 50 percent, further decreasing startup times and improving container density. As part of this effort to focus on containers, we will be removing the functionality for infrastructure-related roles. Instead of using Nano Server for these scenarios, we recommend deploying the Server Core installation option, which includes all the roles and features you would need.
  • Moving forward, Server Core will be the recommended choice for hosting your virtual machines as well as your containers – which can be running a Nano Server container image, a Server Core container image, or even Linux container images.
  • Server Core is also our recommended option for infrastructure workloads. Many customers don’t realize that Server Core is the base image that runs Azure and Azure Stack.

Us as well.  Still waiting for some word on Hyperv 2016 support.
