SRM4.0 not supported on Windows Server 2008 64-bit

Filed under: Uncategorized — ermac318 @ 2:27 pm

So this has already bitten me in the ass and I just wanted to warn anyone else with test or lab environments who runs into trouble.

According to the SRM Compatibility Matrix, you cannot install SRM Server on 64-bit Windows Server 2008. Considering this is generally the recommended platform for vCenter installs, it means anyone trying to co-habitate the SRM server with vCenter is out of luck.



  1. Good find there Justin, thanks for sharing.

    VMware seriously… WTF?
