  • Hyper-V replica for a Windows 8 VM possible?

    Hi,

    I plan to maybe run 2 VMs on Hyper-V. Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials and Windows 8.1 Pro. I plan to use a second server with hyper-V free on it. We'll make replicas on it.

    I know I can use Hyper-V Replica to make a replica of the Windows Server VM every 5 minutes on the second server. Can we do the same for the Windows 8.1 Pro VM?

    Also Can we use the Hyper-V server included with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials to replicate on a Hyper-V free server? Are they compatible? Or should we use 2 Hyper-v free servers so they are more compatible?

    AFAIK the replicas are a function of the HyperV host, and have nothing to do with the OS running on the guest VM, so I don't see anything stopping you having replicas of both 2012 Essentials and Windows 8 VMs on Server 2012 hosts

    If I misunderstood you and you are using Windows 8 as the HyperV host, you cannot have replicas of VMs running on it.
