System Requirements for Load Balancer for IPv4 and IPv6

    I am running Load Balancer for IPv4 and IPv6.

    I am running this on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

    I would like to upgrade the Windows OS.  I am trying to find out what versions of Windows are supported by this product.  The website on the PC itself points to the following site for system requirements:  http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27006921
    IBM has since redirected that site to some obscure maze called "WebSphere Application Server Detailed System Requirements" which sounds like just what I wanted.  It's new URL is:  https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/websphere-application-server-detailed-system-requirements
    However I am unable to find what I am looking for here.
    Can anyone help me find out if I am able to upgrade the version of Windows?  And to what level?

    Hi Robert, unfortunately this component doesn't support later operating system releases on Windows.

    For 9.0, the Edge components system requirements were factored out to a standalone technote: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/617633

    For 8.5.5, they are incorporated into WAS Network Deployment. The reports can be generated for just the individual edge components or in aggregate. Here is an example limiting the report to just LB for IPv4 and IPv6 and windows: https://www.ibm.com/software/reports/compatibility/clarity-reports/report/html/softwareReqsForProduct?deliverableId=C53CA3103DAF11EDACD8B030F24C9374&osPlatforms=Windows&duComponentIds=S001&mandatoryCapIds=13|25&optionalCapIds=341|9|13|39|8|132|20|223|26|40
