    I saw mention that Virtual Server 2005 will run on X64 W2k3 via SP1.

    Where can I get Virtual Server 2005 w/SP1?

    The evaluation download seems to be pre-sp1 and refuses to install on X64

  2. Andre has given you the link to the beta version. My only comment? It is
    quite fast on my x64 box.

    Thanks guys. I've "submitted my survey" for the beta.

    It wasn't clear in the informational web pages at the main Virtual Server
    web site that SP1 is only in BETA.

    While on the topic, has anyone heard when the final SP1 expects release?

  5. Not sure when the SP1 beta will be done, fairly soon though.

    One thing I would like to point out is that you will only be able to host
    32bit guests on x64, no 64bit guests, that wont be until future revisions
    of Virtual Server as they have to rewrite the hardware emulation side of
    the product to emulate 64bit environments. This SP is meant to only add
    support for 32bit environments running on x64. Ping me with any questions.

  7. Dunno yet. I actually sit next to someone that's close to the VPC stuff
    but he is out the next two weeks, I will ping him when he is back in the
    office and see what I can find out for you.

  9. Yeah, I've heard mixed things. Personally, I prefer the interface of VPC ( I
    find VS fairly annoying, frankly), but I must say the performance of VS is
    definitely better than VPC.

  11. there is a console app, but not for administration. I'm getting used to VS,
    but I can't say I'll ever love it. ;)
