Last April we released the first Hyper-V Best Practice Analyzer. This has been one of our top Hyper-V related downloads – and we have received lots of good feedback about this tool.
Last week we released an update for the Hyper-V Best Practice Analyzer that you can download here:
(Note – you need to have the original Best Practice Analyzer installed first).
This update includes:
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 updates:
- The memory configuration rules have been updated to account for the new supported limits once dynamic memory is enabled.
- Server roles that are needed for RemoteFX are no longer flagged as being a problem if they are installed with Hyper-V
- Allow a consolidation ratio of 12:1 for Windows 7 virtual machines (still 8:1 for server virtual machines)
- Correctly report “Microsoft Hyper-V Server” as a server core installation
- Correct issues with identifying whether ECC or non-ECC ram is present in the physical computer
Changed from customer feedback:
- No longer flag the presence of the file server role as an issue – as there are many valid configurations for this.
