It seems that there has been some flux in the support level for using Windows Storage Server 2008 serving up a VHD via iSCSI to the K2.

The current edition of the KB lists "Virtual Disk" as a supported way of setting up the offboard storage, but support says that isn't actually working right now, but a patch should be down the road.

Has anybody set up offboard storage on Windows Storage Server 2008? What kind of problems are happening?

I think you are misreading the technical note: http://www.kace.com/support/kb/index.php?action=artikel&cat=1&id=1129&artlang=en&highlight=esx

The only supported interface for adding offboard storage when 3.4 ships for hardware K2000's will be Network Attached Storage using the Network File System. The only supported devices are the ones listed in the technote.

The part of the technote I think you're referring to references adding virtual disks to VK2000's or RSA's; it includes a reference on how ESX communicates to virtual hard disks.
