      This virtual machine will provision an instance of Server 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 R2 on Hyper-V or Windows Azure VM role. The instance is pre-configured to support the evaluation of SAP's Gateway product, which you can download from SAP. It can also be used on its own, but be aware that the SQL default collation is set to CP850_BIN2.
  • Supported Operating Systems:

    Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

      Hyper-V is required to run this virtual machine. In addition to Hyper-V, you will need a 64-bit system with hardware-assisted virtualization enabled, as well as data execution prevention (DEP).

      Hyper-V can be run from one of the following environments:
      - Windows Server 2008 SP2
      - Windows Server 2008 R2
      - Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

      Prerequisites, installation steps, OS recommendations and known issues of Hyper-V can be found here.

      The virtual machine will require 4GB RAM, 2 processors and at least 25GB of disk space, or a medium-size Azure VM.
    • 1. Download all parts of the VM archive
      2. Run the self-extracting RAR archive.
      3. When prompted, accept the EULA. The VM will now be extracted.
      4. Import the VM into Hyper-V Server, or create an Azure VM with the VHD file provided as described here
      5. Administrator password is "pass@word1" (no quotes)

      By default, this VM comes configured without a virtual NIC assigned. If you do not have a virtual NIC already defined in Hyper-V Manager, you will need to configure one. This is required in order to activate your 180 day trial period. You will have 10 days to activate.
