SIM 7.3 on Server 2012 R2

Hi All,

I can see that Server 2012 R2 should be a supported operating system, however when trying to install 7.3 on Server 2012 R2 Standard, i get a prompt that the operating system is not supported.

 

I can run this in compatability mode back to Windows 7 which gets me past that error then i run into a diffferent issue with SQL.

Is anyone else expiriencing problems with Server 2012 R2. I cant believe that its unsupported?

Hello there,

 

Please read the link below:

 http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/ITRC-HP-Systems-Insight-Manager/HP-SIM-on-Windows-Server-2012-R2-Essentials/td-p/6519052

 

If i look at the supportmatrix 2012 R2 is supported on the following versions:

 

Latest Software Release Support

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard, Datacenter (CMS and Managed Node)
  • Microsoft Windows Standard Storage Server 2012 R2 (Managed Node)

You can read about this on the following URL:

 

http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/hpsim/dl_windows.html

 

When you read the first link it says that the Essentials version is not yet supported.

 

Hope that helped.

 

Kind regards,

 

Andrew

I had the same issue you described but I was able to fix this by doing the following:

 

Download and install the 64bit version of SQL Express 2008 R2 SP2.

 

Enable TCP/IP in the Network Configuration in SQL Server Configuration Manager (you may also need to add port 1433 to "IPAll" in the IP addresses tab while you're in TCP/IP protocol settings).
