Many thanks! I indeed checked user manual, and I am certainly not expecting it to include later OS versions when it is released around 2010.
Ayomide, I guess I will take your words as a confirmation that the OPC DA/HDA server 2010 indeed are supported on 2012 R2. Alan did seem to suggest otherwise though.
Thanks for the response Joe.
As you mentioned, it was not originally tested with Windows Server 2012 R2, but was eventually tested when a customer asked previously about compatibility. In addition, Alan's comments about the DCOM configuration would be extremely helpful.
