Create UCS Platform Emulator Virtual Machine for Hyper-V

Version 1

    This script quickly creates a UCS Platform Emulator Instance on your Hyper-V host machine.


    You must first download the UCSPE from, extract the files and convert the four VMDKs to VHDs.  I use StarWin V2V Image Converter but others also work.

    It requires Windows Server 2012 or beyond with the Hyper-V role installed to run the UCS Platform Emulator.

    The Hyper-V service must be running.

    You must copy the UCSPE VHDs to your Hyper-V Virtual Hard Disks default folder

    You must have a vSwitch configured for use

    Your workstation must be able to allocate a minimum of 1GB RAM or maximum 4GB RAM to the virtual machine.
