Although it is not officially supported we run Windows Server 2003 on AHV without any issues for some legacy business applications.

Thanks for sharing jtempleton
Has anyone tried OEL 5.9 on AHV?
Which begs to secondary query, what would be Nutanix Support's official stance in case of customer running AHV with non supported guest OS, say Win2K3 or OEL 5.9?
