    I have Virtual Server R2 running on Vista B2. However, I cannot get the
    network connection working on a clean install of Windows XP virtual machine.
    The network connection has "Limited or no connectivity". The Virtual
    Machine Additions (13.552) are installed, and that didn't seem to help.

    Does anybody have this working successfully?

    Thanks,
    Bob Willer [267513]

  2. You might want to post this on the microsoft.public.virtualserver newsgroup
    as it "feels" like a problem with Virtual Server :eek:)

  3. No its not, its a Vista issue. Its strange you can't find a solution to
    problems in a program you recommend so enthusiastically. Bob, I would go
    with VM Ware, it is compatible with Vista out of the box.

    I'm trying to run Virtual Server R2 on Vista B2 as well but when I go to the
    administration web page I see an error message which states:

    "The following error occurred:
    An error occurred accessing the website application data folder."

    This message prevents me from creating a virtual machine.

    The Recent Events log on this page shows that the service is running and
    started OK.

    This looks like a permissions issue but since I'm logged in with admin
    rights I'm not sure what I need to change. Does anyone know what the problem
    is?

    An initial observation I have about Vista is that it is quite irritating to
    use. When I log into a machine as an administrator I don't expect the machine
    to constantly ask me if it is OK to do things which I have asked it to do.
    Obviously, Microsoft have really tried to address security issues with this
    release of Windows but there's a fine line between security and usability -
    or am I missing something?

    You took the words right out of my mouth. If I loging as a admin, DONT ask me
    anything. I know what I want to do, LET ME. This is nuts and a HUGE pain.
    KEY items like OWA do not work!?!?! What is that about? I know, I know, its
    beta dude, what do you want? Answer: Let me do my job if I'm an admin and
    make the basic functions work. Thats not asking to much, is it?
