Not compatible with Server 2012 Hyper-V 11/25/2013
SuperMicro tech support is great. No where have I ever experienced working with a manufacturer where you literally talk to the guy sitting on a work bench reproducing your problem and figuring things out for you.
Unfortunately, this board is NOT compatible with Server 2012 Hyper-V. This board has a fatal flaw with the network adapters. If you install the Intel drivers for the network cards with advanced networking services (so you can use teaming, vlans, etc.) and install Hyper-V the system will become unstable. Whenever accessing the network adapter properties of the Intel 82574L or trying to create a team, or other configuration the motherboard will instantly reboot. The problem has been submitted to SuperMicro, it has been reproduced, it has been escalated to Intel, it has been 3 months, there is still no solution.
In addition, at this time Intel has NO drivers for Server 2012 R2.
There is a thread in the Microsoft forums where we are tracking this issue and desperately waiting for a solution. If you intend to use this board with Server 2012 Hyper-V you MUST use the built-in windows drivers for the network adapters which do not have any advanced networking services.
There have been some other minor issues I have experienced with this board that were not show stoppers. It has trouble with detecting boot devices unless you change some really strange settings in the BIOS.
