    Win10 Pro - Hyper-V hosting a Server 2012 R2 Server + Gaming on Host?


    Hi,

    I run a home server for Hosting file shares, a Plex server, an LMS Squeezebox server, and Ubiquiti management server. The hardware is about 8 years old and I`m looking to upgrade.

    One thing I would like to do is some VR gaming (Elite Dangerous specifically) and I`m thinking about leveraging the new hardware to host the server in a Hyper-V VM on the Windows 10 Pro machine, and then install Elite Dangerous on the host operating system for some VR gaming action.

    As the 2012 R2 server hosts a number of essential services for the home, it needs to be running reliably 24/7, even when Im gaming on the host (which will be infrequently). The services running on the 2012 server take very little resources.

    My question is - assuming I spec a good multi-core system, with plenty of RAM and a fast SSD for the OS - are there any issues with the approach I`m suggesting?

    Would VR gaming work reliably in this configuration?

    :)

    Hyper-V VM server licensing

    Hello,

    We have a VM running a 2012 R2 OS and are having an issue applying the license we have purchased.

    I was advised that a 2019 standard license would work for licensing a 2012 server and this is not working when typing in the key to the VM.

    Can anyone point out what could be the issue, maybe I'm supposed to type the key into the Hyper-V host?

    Hyper-V 2012 R2 Virtual Server that crashes every 8 hours, on the dot!

    Hey Everyone, We've got a Hyper-V 2012 Virtual Server that has started having issues several weeks ago. If the server is left running, it will crash every 8 hours, sometimes to the SECOND from the previous
    boot time stamp. Its almost always within a minute of the 8 hour interval. I've checked scheduled tasks, scheduled backups, SQL maintenance.....nothing!

    However, if we reboot the server, say at 7 hours and 50 minutes, it will not crash and continue to run happily for another 8 hours.....at which time it will crash again. The only thing we get after a crash
    is the crappy new blue screen that reports "Registry Error." The event log is incredibly clean with no suggestion as to the cause. We have three other Virtual servers

    that are Hyper-V virtual servers and they are working great. We've ran all kinds of virus and malware scans and everything is clean. By the way the Host Server is 2016 R2 Standard

    Anyone have any ideas, or seen anything similar?
