  • Hyper-V beta - Is it working?

    I just downloaded the latest CTP 6001 with Hyper-V.
    After installing, I added the Hyper-V role, nothing else.
    However, I found that the Virtual Machine Management Service will not start. As a result, I can't get anything else to work.

    Has anyone else had any success yet?

    Do you have the right hardware for it?

      I fixed it.
      Yes, I had the right hardware. If the hardware is not correct, the system will tell you, and will not install.

      I found out that you must NOT change the locale away from English (US). Otherwise, the installation will finish, but the services will not start, and nothing will work.

      After a reformat, and another install using English (US), everything worked.

          Hi all,

          I thought to recommend you read the Hyper-V guide at http://www.virtualizationteam.com before trying to set it up on your own and get stuck.

          They had scripted a step by step guide for installing, configuring, & using MS Hyper-V. I have followed it in our installation for our testing enviornment and the installation was really easy. The MS Hyper-V 5 parts series are linked to below. Check it out and hope that will get you there easily just as I were able to do it first time.

          Intro: Introduction to Microsoft Windows 2008 Hyper-V RTM & Our Discovery Trip.

          Part one: Microsoft Windows 2008 Hyper-V RTM Installation

          Part Two: MS Hyper-V Virtual Networks Configuration & Hyper-V Server settings.

          Part Three: MS Hyper-V Virtual Machine Creation.l

          Part Four: MS Hyper-V Virtual Machine Settings.

          Part Five: Microsoft Hyper-V Snapshots Technology.

          Bonus: Install SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP1 & Component Integration for Linux on Hyper-V

          Hope that get you there.

          Enjoy,
          Susan
