 Dimension for Hyper-V Setup Wizard fails

Products: WatchGuard Dimension
Operating System: 2.x and 1.x
Issue Status: Resolved
Tracking ID: FBX-16103
Status: Resolved
Resolved In: 2.1.2 Update 3
If you deploy a Dimension system on Hyper-V on a computer with Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 or higher, you might be unable to complete the Dimension Setup Wizard.
This occurs because of a known issue with the Intel Xeon line of processors. To learn more, see https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/xeon-e3-1200v3-spec-update.pdf

When this occurs, the setup will stall at the administrator passphrase step. 

 
This issue does not occur with other processors, or with ESXi deployments.
