Not as bizarre as it sounds.  The 2008 server is one of about 30 running on 4 
esx servers that form my company's infrastructure.

VirtualBox is the way that I run some windows-only admin tools on my Linux 
desktop. vSphere which is the admin client for the esx cluster is win-only (in 
spite of the fact that the esx host is Linux)

The weird part about this, though is that my Rube Goldberg-esque setup works 
fine on all of the servers in the cluster except 2008R2.  2003-2008 work fine.
