Supported 2.x Guest List Is Not the Same in Management Interface and VirtualCenter (1003041)


When you connect to an ESX Server 2.5.x host through VirtualCenter Server 2.5 and attempt to create a new virtual machine, the following guest operating systems are not listed in the Choose the Guest Operating System menu, even though they are supported:
  • FreeBSD
  • Windows 2000 Professional
  • Windows server 2003 Web Edition


Connect to the ESX Server 2.5.x host through the management interface and create the virtual machine. This Choose the Guest Operating System menu contains all supported options.
