So from my understanding, you can only use the Cisco 1000V with Server 2012 which runs Hyper-V version 3. Is this correct? We are currently running Server 2008 R2 enviroment and have need for the 1000V. We have layer 2 performance issues with our VMs and I was thinking 1000V would be an excellent add-on to the network.
What is everybody using for their virtual switch in the Hyper-V version 2 environment? Seems like the virtual switch included is pretty basic.
See the following link:
I hope it will be useful.

I totally agree! I've tried to convince the customer to use VMware, but they like the fact that Hyper-V is free. But all in all, it's going to cost them some money to get the 1000V up and running with Server 2012 from a licensing standpoint.
I'm currently working on the 1000V in my lab, and it's just awesome!
