If you don't update your servers, you are setting yourself up for
more issues that you should.  I've never run my VMs on anything
other than a RHEL-based environment and all have been more
or less well behaved.  The pain I have felt was when I was asked
to move my VM (that was a Fedora 12 I think) to a VMware
host and it refused to boot. Needed some voodoo for the VMware
to make it work, but fortunately, my VM got back to a RHEL
host and all was well.
