Jump to solution

Hi

I'm using ESXi 4.0

When does VMWare start the technical support for Windows Server 2008r2 ?

Windows Server 2008 R2 is developed by Microsoft, while ESX 4 is developed by VmWare, therefore about all support for it you should ask at MS. Beacuse for now WS2k8R2 is not available in GA, you have to use corporate licemse to get it.

If you mean support of VMs with this OS - it`s available already now, but full support of this OS will be available only after GA release of OS.
