Dear all,

 

I would like to understand the Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2019 Free Version Features and Limitation. Is it support Fail-Over Cluster and Cluster Set?

 

Thank you and best regards,

Natthaphol.

Hello Natthaphol Hyper-v is completely free. It's comes from with Windows Server licences. You can use 2 Hyper-V virtual machine with your base licence. 

 

And you can use for free and configure as cluster. The pricable one is System Center Virtual Machine Manager SCVMM


It's comes from with Windows Server licences. You can use 2 Hyper-V virtual machine with your base licence. 


Completely false info here. The hypervisor does not need activation but in order to run windows on hyper-v server you'll need to license and activate.

Hi Dave which information is false can you explain that.

 

Probably you are confusing about concepts. Hypervisor is a term about virtualization. We are talking about Hyper-v and cluster features.

 

Also you can see the page for Hyper-v licencing rights

Dear @Dave Patrick 

 

Thank you for your tip.

 

As far as I understand Microsoft has a Free Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2019, Do you have any link reference information on that version Microsoft doc web site? I try to but cannot find it.

 

Best regards,

Natthaphol.

 

Dear @aliortul

Do you have any link reference Features and Limitation information on that version Microsoft doc web site? I try to but cannot find it.

From the TechNet evaluation center

Try Hyper-V Server 2019 on Microsoft Evaluation Center

(better to start a new thread for your questions)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi Natthaphol
Yes as your understand. Microsoft Hyper-v 2019 or 2016 is free you can use as Bare metal hypvervisor which called Hypvervisor1 or on Operating System called Hypervisor2.

But dont miss it Hyper-V server is not a operating system its jusy Hypvervisor and need to Windows Server.

I have already share the link again you can find below. Look at licencing sheet. Find the Hypver-V and Container part you will see.
