    I've currently got it set-up to on a win2k3 host running a few win2k3 virtual servers and it works a treat - I just need a better spec PC

    Thanks for that Michael. What are your hardware specs?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.

      Didn't they just offer their GSX Server for free? I got an email about it a week ago.

        Athlon 800mhz with 512 Ram - it's a bit slow but workable

          I think this is the "NEW" free GSX server.

          Very handy if it is.

            Definitely need to up that RAM to 1Gb or 2Gb! Otherwise the CPU should be fine to run 2 VMs

                Very handy for all sorts of stuff.

                  First we had pants, now we have dogs. For a country (Isle) that gave the world English, you guys sure don't speak much of it.

                      hi just a quick question

                      after you've installed it whats the difference between

                      vmware server console
                      and
                      vmware virtual machine console
