I've started using Vmware ESXi 5.0 recently. I've enacted a host with following version. I'm having difficulty creating Windows Server 2012 R2 based VMs where upon booting it blows up and restarts continuously. Then I found this (http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=200685...)KB article.
Does this patch applies to this installation of VMware ESXi 5.0 I'm currently? Please help. Thanks.
No you are not on the right version, you are on the GA version and you need to be on at least update 1 and patch 4. Here is the link to build numbers.
Thanks for that link. So from that KB article if i install any of following patches (preferably 7) would that help creating WS 2012 R2 based VMs?
As per the KB below you need to Install Patch 2 for Windows Server 2012 not sure will it be applicable for Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows 8 Developer Preview / Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate does not boot on ESXi 5.0. To resolve this issue, you must install patch ESXi500-201112001 (Patch 02)
