I am fairly new to the whole VMWare infrastructure and was wondering how to go about adding virtual machines to the ESX environment. I have installed ESX on a server and I have installed the Virtual Center Console on a standalone Windows XP machine. I have made it as far as logging in to the Web Access piece and getting to the Virtual Machines interface. How do I go about installing Virtual Machines so that I can manage them in the console? One other little tidbit of info is that when I log into the Web Access piece the IP Address that it is pointing to is itself: 127.0.0.1:8086/ui/VManage.do
I don't have a SQL Server configured I just let the install configure it's own MSDE as this only for testing purposes.
Any help you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated,
