  • VM Server on VISTA 64 cannot connect

    Hi,
    I have a problem with Virtual Server 1.0.5 on Vista 64 bit.
    1. I don't have an option open existing machine or create a new. Only connect to the host.

    2. When trying to connect to Localhost or by computer name with Administrator credentials the connection is refused.

    Please explain could it be an issue with VIsta 64 or 1.0.5 Virtual Server is different from previous and requires some specific stuff.

    thx.
    Michael.

      According to this DYasny is correct.

      Windows Host Operating System Requirements
      You must use a Microsoft Windows server operating system. To use the VMware
      Management Interface, Internet Information Server (IIS) 5.0 or 6.0 must be installed.
      NOTE Operating systems and service packs that are not listed are not supported for
      use as a host operating system for VMware Server.
      64‐bit host computers can run the following operating systems for 64‐bit extended
      systems:
      ! Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise, Standard, and Web Editions, R2
      VMware, Inc. 7
      Chapter 1 Introduction and System Requirements
      ! Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise, Standard, and Web Editions, Service
      Pack 1
      32‐bit host computers can run the following operating systems:
      ! Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise, Standard, Web, and Small Business
      Editions, including Service Pack 1
      ! Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Service Pack 3 and Service Pack 4
      ! Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Service Pack 3 and Service Pack 4
      VmPerl API requires Perl 5.005x or higher.
      VMware Management Interface requires one of these browsers:
      ! Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0 (6.0 highly recommended)
      ! Firefox 1.x
      ! Mozilla 1.x
      ! Netscape Navigator 7.0
      On the other hand though....
      I have got both Server 1.04 and Server 2.0 Beta working on Windows XP at home

      So go figure....

          I'm only able to run MS Virtual PC but I really want to run VMWare server...
