I'm trying to allocate a box to install geoServer for my company's intranet site. We have a box with Windows 2012 R2 installed but I can't find any specific documentation if geoServer will run on this OS. Can anyone help me answer this?

    As GeoServer is written in Java it should be no problem. The Java virtual machine is meant to be plattform independent. Also the Windows Server is in most cases usable like a normal OS. – Matte Mar 8 '17 at 6:41


Long Answer

Yes, of course. You can use the usual windows installer and install GeoServer as a service. Make sure to read about production settings.

  • Thank you. Just wanted to make sure and there was nothing specifying the 2012 R2 os, although I suppose it's just standards windows os. – geoJshaun Mar 8 '17 at 18:51
