Due to the nature of virtualization software, some system functionality is not available to the administrator of a virtual dedicated Windows hosting server. The following are known to not function in this environment:

  • NTBackup
  • RAS (Remote Access Services), including VPN
  • Anti-virus software
  • MS ISA Server (Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server) and other firewall services
