  • Lab Setup

    Hello everyone I going for my 70-642 certification, and I am using Microsoft training kit 70-642 as my study guide. So the question is what vitalization software should I use for the labs I am torn between virtualBox and vmware workstation 6. Also what where some of your guys and gals setup for labs and studying for exams.

    What about the free MS products -- VPC and VServer?
    If you are using the MS Training Kit they will talk you through a suitable lab setup in the first chapter

        Microsoft Courses seem to use Virtual PC a lot. It's very simple and lets you focus on the practices instead of the virtualization software. Personally, I prefer VMWare Server 2.0. You mentioned VirtualBox, so is your host a Linux machine?

            Yeah, for some strange reason I thought VirtualBox wasn't available on Windows. I'll have to check it out now...

              We have a lab and use a furminator on her during shedding season. Other than that the she gets a bath. That tends to take care of loose hair and the stinky waterproof oil around the neck.
