SCVMM 2016 with cu4 can not add more than 64 vCPUs

We have some demands on BIG-ASS VM´s and in our new environment with System Center 2016 and VMM 2016 we tried to add a hardware profile with more than 64 vCPU´s as now in Hyper-V 2016 we can have a VM with 240 vCPU´s and 12 TB of ram, but that cannot be done 🙁

We have also updated with the latest SCVMM CU4 but still no success! Neither via GUI or via PowerShell!

We installed a new Preview of SCVMM 1711 to see if it was any difference and guess what! It has finally been updated but we would much rather see it also comming in a CU in the near time for VMM 2016 as we cannot deploy a preview of the semianual into production..

The gui also have been updated for a hardware profile where it clearly states that it has to be a gen2 vm and also the OS cannot be lower than 2016 for both host and vm

 

Download System Center preview 1711 VHD´s with PowerShell

I have updated my PowerShell Script that download the evaluation VHD´s of System Center with the latest 1711 release and now you can utilize that and get all or selected System Center components you want to evaluate in your environment.

 

System Center 1711 preview version available now

As announced on Microsoft Ignite System Center will start with a new release cadence and now the first one is available as version 1711 (as it is 2017 and november)

You can if you want to evaluate it download as preconfigured VHDs:

good luck and explore
