Hi,

Does anyone know if Workspace will work on Windows Server 2019?

**EDIT: I didn't saw the question was about Workspace.

Based on an IBM Software product compatibility report, PAW is only available for the following Windows server:
  • Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Edition Base x86-64
  • Windows Server 2016 Essentials Edition Base x86-64
  • Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition Base x86-64

Have not seen anything confirming PAW on Server 2019, only articles saying it is not like this one.

Roadmap sounds like containers, OpenShift, RHEL but stand to be corrected.

Oh silly me. Now I realise the error of my ways. Here I was thinking that I would be on safe ground trying to get the goddamn abomination called PAW to run on a Windows Server 2019 environment since the version has only been out for over two freaking years. I should have checked.

Do you know how many problems I've had running Docker in a Windows environment for relational databases since I started doing that a couple of months ago? SQL Server, PostgreSQL, My SQL... how many problems do you think I've had running those in both Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10? Go ahead, guess.

Not. A. Frapping. One. Installation, port redirection, all that, smooth as a baby's backside covered in silk.

The only piece of cr@p that I CANNOT get to talk to anything outside its own little box (when I can get it to install at all) is named PAW. I should have realised that support for a 2 year old O/S is just too much to ask. That, and getting IBM to clue itself into the fact that if it does NOT pull its finger out on this, some sites WILL NOT (do you understand those two words, IBM? WILL. NOT.) allow Linux boxes in an all-Windows shop just to run one sodding user interface. (Like, oh, mine for example.) Nor will they willingly bind themselves into prior versions of the O/S.

Un-frapping-believable. :roll:

Oh, and thanks for the pointer, George. I should have added; I know that the thread that you pointed to was from late 2019, but according to the Software Compatibility Tool (I selected PAW specifically, though to see that you need to click on the View link) this is still the case:
