Is Win2019 supported as a Virtual Machine on Hyper-V 2012 R2 ?

Sorry for such a easy question, but I can't seem to find it.

According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2012-r2-and-2012/dn792027%28v%3dws.11%29 it isn’t.

Thanks Evgenij, that's what I was looking for.

Pity they don't explicitly mention that Win2019 is not supported, and the article is dated november 2017, long before Win2019 exists. But well, I'll go for the *not supported*.

I think the basic rule is one-up. So ws12r2 host can have ws16 guest, but not ws19. Ws16 host can have ws19 guest.

Having said that, i just installed 4x ws19 guests on my ws12r2 host..

Same here, I installed a Win2019 on Hyper-V Win2012R2.

That's why I want to find a MS statement that makes sure that W2019 is not supported on Hyper-V 2012R2.

The one-up isn’t stated as a rule I see, prob got that from an unofficial source.

Ps. Release info is on github now:
