Server App-V 2012 – a (very short) testdrive on Server 2012 Beta.

With the System Center 2012 “Cloud-based” approach, focusing on easily deploying multiple VM’s (both Servers and Workstations), a new feature has been added that makes it even easier to get an ApplicationServer quickly up-and-running.
Server Application Virtualization, or Server App-V , or SAV.
The latter not to be confused with Symantec Anti Virus 🙂
So in my testlab based on Server 2012 Beta, Hyper-V, and System Center 2012 SP1 CTP, I was ready to go and build me some packages.
First, we have to install the App-V Sequencing Agent on a clean server, to start packaging.
Of course, I did this on a freshly deployed Windows Server 2012 Beta VM.
Only to get this message:

Awww….
Okay, I know that the prereqs page states that only Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 are supported, but I was hoping that this was outdated, with the CTP of SP1 for SC2012.
So, no dice.
Ah well, lets fire up a good ol’ Server 2008 R2 VM then. :p
