Is Vista supported on VDI

Jump to solution

IS Vista supported on VDI. I tried to search for this subject. From what I understand ESX 3.5 is the recommended platform for Vista, but I have not seen any documentation stating that Vista is a supported OS

Thanks,

Miguel

Did you power down the VMs before the storage?

The VDM Agent is supported on XP Professional, Vista Business/Enterprise, and Vista Ultimate, as outlined here:

http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vdm20_manual.pdf

Note that they don't explicitly say Vista Ent. is supported but I've spoken with VMware and it is supported. These OS's are the only ones officially supported because up until recently they were the only ones whose licenses allowed being run in a Virtual Machine, but moreso the other versions of Vista don't have an RDP server.
