One of the themes of the last roadshow we did was hybrid cloud with Windows Server 2016, and one of the things I wanted to show was Azure Site Recovery running on a Windows Server 2016 host with VMs. Unfortunately we were a little too early out of the gate, so instead I had to settle for showing Nano Server being replicated into Site Recovery. This week’s good news is that ASR is now officially support Windows Server 2016, and I tested this out by upgrading my Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Site Recovery host to Windows Server 2016 and everything continued to worked. Obviously most people aren’t going to be doing in-place upgrades to Windows Server 2016, but this was a low risk environment so I was happy to test it out and see how it went.
For more details, including the supported scenarios matrix, take a look at Azure Site Recovery now supports Windows Server 2016.
