VMware releases VMware Server Beta 2

What's new in this release?

VMware Server beta 2 is an update to VMware Server beta 1. The beta 2 version includes support for using the VMware Server Console to connect to and configure GSX Server 3 hosts. You can also use virtual machines created under GSX 3 as legacy virtual machines as well as upgrade virtual machines created using GSX Server versions 2 and 3. You cannot use a GSX Server Virtual Machine Console to connect to VMware Server. See the VMware Server documentation manuals for more information.

VMware Server beta 2 also includes the VMware Server C API Technology Preview, which is installed on a Windows host when you perform a complete installation using the master installer or on a Linux host when you install the server software. VMware Server continues to support the VMware Scripting APIs, which include the vmCOM API (Windows hosts only) and the vmPerl API. For more information about the VMware Server C API Technology Preview, see the documentation for the Server C API on the VMware Web site at

In addition, review the Resolved Issues and Known Issues sections for additional information about what has changed since the beta 1 releases.
