Install FileMaker Server 15 on Windows Server 2016 OS?

Windows Server 2016, released last October, is not an officially sanctioned Windows OS for FileMaker Server 15. Is anyone successfully using Windows Server 2016 with FMS 15 and, if so, are there any caveats with regards to using that OS with FMS15? Any advice would be appreciated.


A client of mine is in process of replacing an eight-year-old FileMaker server and they have advised me that their IT consultants will be supplying a Dell PowerEdge T430 Server with Dual Intel Xeon 10-core Processors, running Windows Server 2016. I'm not sure whether the client's IT consultants have experience with FileMaker and I have no experience with Windows Server 2016, so I'm not sure whether to try and intervene and question the decision to use Windows Server 2016.
