VMware Server Beta 3 Released

VMware releases VMware Server Beta 3 (Build 23869).

What's new in this release?  From the release notes:

VMware Server beta 3 is an update to VMware Server beta 2. The beta 3 version includes support for taking and reverting to snapshots in the background. VMware Server beta 3 also includes experimental support for running both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Sun Solaris 10, including update 1 and update 2 beta, as guest operating systems. See the VMware Server documentation manuals for more information. In addition, the beta 3 version includes the VMware Virtual Machine Importer version 1.5, which lets you import virtual machines from Microsoft Virtual Server and Virtual PC as well as Symantec LiveState recovery system images. To access the VMware Virtual Machine Importer from the VMware Server Console, choose either File > Import or File > Open. You can access the VMware Virtual Machine Importer only from the host machine. For more detailed information about how to use the VMware Virtual Machine Importer, see the VMware Virtual Machine Importer User's Manual.
Beginning with beta 3, the master installer for VMware Server also includes the VMware DiskMount Utility, which lets you mount a Microsoft Windows host file system as a separate drive without connecting to the virtual disk from within a virtual machine. For more information about how to use the DiskMount Utility, see the VMware Server Administration Guide.
