Does any has been able to install Windows server 2012 On a B200 M3 blade running 2204XP As fex with VIC 1240 card installed in blade.

I am running 2.0(4b) On B 200 M 3 blades & while trying to install Windows 2012 . It installed succesfully since i am using local disk's But it;s not picking up HBA and NIC drivers . The support Bundle under download link on cisco;s website is missing the drivers for 1240 . It has for 1280 and MK811 KR & Mlom. Just cruious does Cisco supports intallation of Windows 2012 on B200 M3 blade with VIC 1240 adapters. I downloaded whole of 1.0 GB Iso containing Driver Only to see the VIC 1240 Drivers missing from the ISO .

Docuemtation On below link says " it;s Not supported "

Hello Sushil,

UCSM 2.0.4b is not tested for W2K12 and so it is not qualified for support.

However, W2K12 will be able to install  on B200 M3 + VIC 1240 hardware and once you upgrade UCSM + firmware, you will be in supported config scenario.

VIC 1240 is also known as MLOM. You can install drivers published under MLOM folder.

HI

Thanks Padma . excellent to see you active here as well.. it;s been quite some time now . I have opened a Support request as well with you guys as 626787149 .

So what;s the Supported UCSM Firmware version for the  VIC 1240 to Work with windows 2012 ?? .we are running 2.0 (4b ) at the moment .

will appreciate if you could post the relevant official link here and the nearest supported firmware for it to work & yes, I can see Drivers for Mlom in that downloaded ISO. Has downloaded t twice thinking that 1240 is supported.

Regards

Sushil
