Subject Re: ACS 4.4 XenServer 6.2 how to upgrade to ACS 4.4.1
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2014 17:51:01 GMT
when you are creating vms using a w2012 template choose windows 2008 server type from drop
down box and you should be ok, in change log i can see that they resolved this problem with
4.4 but upgrade is not easy for you because of manual changes required in mysql database,
if you are familiar with executing queries it is very easy,
