We recently started integrating our Windows Server environment into Foreman. When setting up Compute Profiles for our VMWare Compute Resources, we realized that Windows Server 2019 is not selectable for the “Guest OS” field. I assumed this was a problem due to the fact we were/are running a rather old Foreman version (2.0.3). But I just discovered that the version we will be updating our production environment to this weekend (2.5.3) still does not offer Server 2019.

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:
Name Description Author Version foreman-tasks The goal of this plugin is to unify the way of showing task statuses across the Foreman instance. It defines Task model for keeping the information about the tasks and Lock for assigning the tasks to resources. The locking allows dealing with preventing multiple colliding tasks to be run on the same resource. It also optionally provides Dynflow infrastructure for using it for managing the tasks.

I primarily would like to know if this is known/intended or even fixed in a recent Foreman version. I assume this is some limitation of libfog but maybe this is also just some form of oversight that could easily be fixed on our side.
