I am using the free version of VMWare Server 1.0.2 on an old server, with only 2GB memory. I did a lot of testing with it, including VMWare Converter ( ) and worked wonderful.
I installed VMWare Server 1.0.2 on a new server, 4GB RAM and two 2.8GHz Dual-Core CPUs, to test how many machines I will be able to run simultaneously. I copied one of the existing machines to the new server, clicked File -> Open and it was added to the console.
But when I try to run the machine, I get a message stating that I need a serial number to unlock the VMWare Server version. How come it worked OK so far?
Is it because of the 2003 Server SP2 ?
I am attaching a screenshot of the Help -> About info window.
