VMWare on 64-bit Linux
Posted on 2005-03-04
I'm looking for anyone with any sort of experience running VMWare on a 64-bit Linux host that can let me know how it worked out. I'd like to try installing VMWare GSX Server on either Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 (only 8 is supported according to VMWare but I would prefer to use 9) or Red Hat Enterprise 3. I would then use it as a Windows consolidation box by installing Windows and the apps as guests. The hardware I'd like to use is a 64-bit AMD Opteron system from Sun.
I'd like to hear opinions, things to watch for, experiences with this or similar setups, or any other info that you think would be important for me to know. (I'll be spreading out the points based on quality info)
