I've been told that a good way to place a copy of virtualised machines on multiple pieces of hardware is to copy the VMDK file from one machine to another with a script so I have at least some redundancy if the server fails. Does anyone know of a script that I can use that can do this or perhaps some commands in Linux that I can use to achieve this? I don't know very much about Linux scripting or Virtual machines. What I'm planing on doing is using Vmware infrastrucutre 3 ESX server Starter edition to begin the process of virtualisation and i need some redundacy without having to resort to purchasing the Enterprise version.
Any help or suggestions
