Hi all,

I have 2 test ESX servers.  I am using a G2 Compaq DL380  attached to basic storage array enclosure STORAGEWORKS ENCLOSURE 4354R RM DUAL U3 PORTS for one of them.  I have been told I can create a vm in virtual center and run open filer on it to create shared storage so that I can test out HA, DRS, and V motion.

When I go to the open filer site it has several options for download including vm ware "virtual appliance" ..is that the one I want or do I want the one for "x86" and just create a windows vm and run it there?  How do I set it up?  Do they make an open filer app for windoze ?Thanks.
