Thanks for your reply.
I already tried it myself.
I can confirm that OpenIndiana will install under Windows server 2008
datacenter R2. I installed the "desktop" version and the only problem is
that you can't install it when you are on a RDP session with the Windows
You need to be at the server to install the openindiana 1.51 destopversion,
since the mouse is not captured over RDP. But on a direct session (attach
yourself physically to the mouse) you can install Openindiana without any
problems. Of course you need to use the "legacy NIC" emulation.
I installed MySQL on OpenIndiana and ran some tests with MySQL slap. I will
post a link soon with the outcome of these tests, since I compared them with
openindiana running on a HP N40L homeserver, solaris 10 MySQL running in a
zone (X4140) and MySQL running on a Windows 2008 VM under Windows 2008
datacenter (HP DL380 G7).
The outcome of these tests are very, very interesting. Differences range
from 0.80 secs to almost 6 secs between these servers. And the homeserver
stays close to or beats sometimes the overall winner!!

I'm guessing this is the same as Windows 2008 Hyper-V, yes?
If so, I'm running a "text mode" install of OI. Works fine, as long as you
remember to configure the VM with the "legacy NIC" emulation. The OI guest
has no guest para-vartual support, so no mouse, etc.
Don't bother trying the GUI install, for the same reason.
(Hyper-V does not support a mouse in the guest with anything other than
their para-virtual driver.)
