7. Hyper-V > Installing the Hyper-V Role

Installing the Hyper-V Role

Deploying Hyper-V in Server 2012 requires adding the Hyper-V role. As with other roles and features, this is done in Server Manager. And as with most of the instruction throughout this book, the focus is on performing tasks through the GUI. Keep in mind, however, that you can also perform all of these tasks through PowerShell.

From the Server Manager dashboard:

  1. Click “Add roles and features,” then click Next and select “Role-based or feature-based installation.” Click Next until you get to “Select server roles.”

  2. Scroll and select the Hyper-V server role. By default, the Hyper-V Module for Windows PowerShell and Hyper-V GUI Management tools are also installed. Opt to include management tools by leaving the checkbox selected and then click Add Features.
