DCE virtual appliance in Hyper-V

Hello,

 

is it possible to deploy DCE virtual appliance over Hyper-V? 

 

I think this topic was commented in the previous DCIM Support Comunity. Regarding to this, is the information of the previous community available in any link?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: DCE virtual appliance in Hyper-V

Hi Javier,

As far as I know DCE was never supported on Hyper-V.

As described in the following page:

https://dcimsupport.ecostruxureit.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039289653-Data-Center-Expert-Virtual-Appl...

The Data Center Expert v7.x server is available as a virtual appliance, supported on VMware ESXi 6.5.0.

Kind regards

Hi Jzurera,

 

Actually, you're both right...As Jef mentioned, only ESXI is officially supported.
Hyper-V has been seen to work but getting it deployed from what I remember was not in the instructions (or officially supported) but I too recall comments on the old forum as Jzurera mentions. 
Sadly, we don't have access to these older posts just now but I am told they are working on getting those old posts up on this site. I have no ETA.

Per Steve's not officially supported.

Requires conversion from OVA, unzipped to OVF, convert it to VHD format for Hyper-V.

The conversion is the tricky part, on making sure storage works.

Would not recommend that for production DCE.

 

I wished we can still access the old forum, lots of useful info there.
