I recently had this same scenario, but couldn't get Console to run at all. Had to revert to Windows 7.
Thanks for the response. I didn't realize that on a Virtual Server machine, different servers can have different OS's. The client is going to rebuild it as Server 2008 R2, so my problem, at least with this client is no longer an issue. Would be nice though, if Filemaker Server was certified for Server 2012.
