SharePoint 2013 Support for Windows Server 2012 R2

Hi Folks!

well since morning i have been working on demo Virtual Machine and i have faced lots of issues while  installing  SharePoint 2013 on WindowsServer 2012 R2. but finally after 2 hours i have installed the SharePoint 2013 Server on WindowsServer 2012 R2 and configured most of the services but when i have configured Workflow service and try to register my Test site with Workflow Farm it was refusing and PowerShell was throwing errors like Register-SPWorkflowService : The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found. Then i tried to create new scope with            –ScopeName  but it was also not working. Unfortunately i have wasted whole day to figure out the issue but couldn’t find . then i dug more in Google and Bing search and i found the article which says that  currently SharePoint2013 is not supported for installation on computer running WindowsServer 2012 R2. Here is the link you can find more information TechNet. Please comment on this blog If anyone has information regarding this issue i would appreciate.

“Currently, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 is not supported for installation on computers running the Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system.   Installing SharePoint Server 2013 on a computer that is running Windows Server 2012 R2 could lead to unexpected behavior, therefore, Microsoft does not support SharePoint Server 2013 in Windows Server 2012 R2.  SharePoint Server 2013 with Service Pack 1 and SharePoint Foundation 2013 with Service Pack 1 will offer support for Windows Server 2012 R2. The release date for Service Pack 1 for SharePoint Server 2013 and SharePoint Foundation 2013 is to be determined. This article will be updated as more information becomes available.”

Happy SharePointing 🙂
