MS Hyper-V

When creating a Platform layer for Hyper-V, be sure to be prepared with the following information:

  • Hyper-V settings: If the operating system image you used to create your OS layer originated in Hyper-V, you do not need a Hyper-V Platform layer, because the Hyper-V settings are already included in your OS layer. There are no additional prerequisites when selecting Hyper-V as the hypervisor in your Platform Layer.

    If the operating system image you used to create your OS layer originated on a different hypervisor, you should set the Hyper-V settings in the Platform layer. The purpose of these settings is to ensure that applications install and run flawlessly in Hyper-V.

  • KMS settings: If you are using KMS licensing, you need the KMS settings.
