VMWare ESXi with SBS 2008 x64

I would like to install SBS 2008 x64 on my ESXi Server how ever it is not an option on the Guest OS List... Would choseing Server 2008 x64 have any long term issues?

Thanks!

You shouldn't have any long term issues since the virtual hardware is the same for both.  Since SBS 2008 x64 has Exchange, and perhaps SQL running on it you may want to allocate additional memory up front, otherwise you're ok.

Done it lots of times. Works just fine. I am not actually sure that it does different, other than populate a few fields. Probably just ensures the right version of the VMWARE tools are mounted!

Just make sure that you create the VM with the System Requirements required by SBS 2008 - http://www.microsoft.com/sbs/en/us/system-requirements.aspx
