VMWare server 2 & win2k3
Thought I'd share this gotcha and the fix I hit today.
VMWare server version 2 is a pretty big MSI and as I found can result in a GPO security policy error (ie: not allowed to installed because of the policy).
The fix is this:
FIX: Error message when you try to install a large Windows Installer package or a large Windows Installer patch package in Windows Server 2003 or in Windows XP: "Error 1718. File was rejected by digital signature policy"
And it has Tomcat without the option to leave it out (like VirtualCenter)
Euuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. I went back to 1.0.7
B*gger... Wish I'd done a little searching first... Seems like this wasn't my smartest move ever... Reverting.

Yeah.. I looked at one of the v2 beta/RCs and decided server 1.0.6 (lastest 1 series then) was staying put, not least for the Workstation-like UI. This is a pity because there are some new virtual hardware bits in v2 I wanted.. just not that much!
