1 Comment


Here you can download the Software you need for a Home Test Lab Server :

  1. Microsoft Windows Server “8” Beta ( 64-Bit ISO and VHD)
  2. The Windows® Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows® 7
  3. Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Express
  4. Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 Native Client
  5. Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 Command Line Utilities
  6. System Center 2012 CTP for Windows Server “8” Beta support

Installing Microsoft Windows Server “8” Beta with Active Directory, my domain is called Cloud.local.

Prepare the Server with the next software installations :

  • Installing The Windows® Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows® 7
  • Installing Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Express ( ENU\x64\SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe)
  • Installing SQL Native Client and Command Line Utilities
  • And as last you install System Center 2012 CTP for Windows Server “8” Beta support ( SC2012_SP1_CTP_VMM.exe)

The installation of SC2012 SP1 CTP Virtual Machine Manager is the same installation as before.

Just connect to your Virtual Machine Manager Server on Microsoft Windows Server “8” Beta.

Working Fine, and my Virtualmachine Windows 7 is running in my DMZ again 😉

Can’t wait for the RTM versions :
