Support Pack for Windows Server 2012 RC

Hello,

Does anyone know if HP has a beta support pack for Windows 2012?  With the existing Windows 2008 R2 Support Pack/Service Pack, some things install, but others like the video driver and Management agents do not.  I was hoping there would be a native, even if still beta, version specifically for Windows Server 2012 RC.  I am running a DL380 G6 as my test server.

 

Thanks

Nelson

Thanks.

 

I never received an email about your response from the boards - so sorry for the late "thank you".

Unfortunately, that Support Pack (9.05) still does not include the iLO 3/4 driver so you cannot install the HP Management agents.  Of lesser issue is no video driver yet in the SP either.  But what I was really hoping to test was adding a Win 2012 server to SIM to see if it came in properly - but with no support for the SNMP or WBEM management agents (due to lack of iLO driver), I cannot due this.

After reviewing the white paper, I noticed this:

 

Recommended ProLiant servers

Upon commercial release of Windows Server 2012, we will support the current generation of ProLiant servers and one generation back; therefore, we will not support ProLiant G6 servers with Windows Server 2012

 

As I am using a 380 G6 as my test server, I guess I am out of luck.

Pretty dissapointing, love my G6, still under warranty.

 

My $200 cell phone is older and still gets support.

 

What gives? The G6 is a great box for 2012.

 

Sigh.

I'm dissappointed to hear that the G6 servers will not support 2012.  Shame.

This is really wrong as you can still buy some g6 servers even today.  I have an ml350 g6 I would like to run 2012 on and my company has a bunch of dl380's.  I really is wrong that the g6 is not included when it can be a new server.
