New build of Windows Server “Longhorn”

December 20th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

There’s a new build up on the ongoing Longhorn Server beta program. It’s the next build up from 5600 which was available back in August. This current build, 6001.16406 will be on Microsoft Connect very soon – just waiting for permissions to propagate across domains.

There’s also an updated copy of the Microsoft Beta Client. Ensure that your new build of Longhorn Server is running this, and another versions running on any other machine are updated accordingly.

    I have tried to install the new build in Virtual Server R2 SP1 Beta, but ran into problems installing vmaddition. While they install without errors, the system does not appear to be virtualized. Can you confirm the functionality of the new build under Virtual Server.
