    Is it possible to install IRST drivers on Hyper-V Server 2012 R2/2016


      Hi there,

      I have several DELL PowerEdge T20 "servers", that are equipped with IRST RAID controller. On that machines, there is installed Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 or 2016. That server is working as Core server - it is not having any GUI, only two CLI Windows at all.

      Installation of current IRST packahe ends up with and error.

      I was digging in the log and I found the difxapi.dll is missing. I believe that it is related to absence of an GUI.


      Do you anyone handled that?


      My goal is to see what is happening with the array - remotely, now I must reboot the server each time if I want to confirm all is working fine - If there is some failed drive and so on.


      Also, it would be awesome if tah monitoring could be done via WMI, but CLI or GUI interface would be enough.
