I do not know the release dates for support, but I can tell you that I have both Windows 2008 Server Core and Windows 2008 Server installed and functioning w/o problems in VI3.
I think the announcement is more of a chicken and egg problem. VMware cannot really announce support for an unreleased product. They could - but if something suddenly changed in WIN2k8 which caused problems, that announcement would need to be retracted.
However, as renehasp notes, you can run it now without any problems.
I would expect to see support announced by VMware very soon after the offical windows release.
Server 2008 has been officially released for over a month now.
1. Yes, Windows 2008 has been officaly released over a month now.
2. Yes you can install in in VI3 under Guest OS version (Microsoft Vista) but you can not deploy vm's from templates in a clean manner and I simply can not take a risk of deploying production 2008 servers at our company, without VMware officaily supporting it not to mention I don't even know if vmtools is really working the right way on 2K8 since it thinks it's VISTA.
If anyone hears some type of timeframe for a release dates or support.It would be helpful..
Huh, it came out feb 27! That is what I get for spending too much time in the Unix world.
