Please read the interesting post at the url below.
It gives an interesting insight into the psyche of the folks at VMWARE.
Despite the recent public posturing about SUSE Linux for VMWARE.


I wonder if Domain Services for Windows might help with this issue but
that is not really the point of the post.
It is really about functionality that previously worked suddenly
disappearing with no explanation.

My belief has always been that VMWARE's primary raison d'etre was to
make management of windows servers tolerable.
"I also found it difficult to believe thatthey actually gave a XXX about
anything else. "pseudo mainframe for windows".
Can you imagine a datacenter with hundreds of windows servers w/o VMWARE.
