Hi All. We currently have a Windows 2003 network with about 6 windows servers and we also have about 6 Oracle servers. I have been approved by management to go ahead with VMWARE. However, i dont have any spare servers to test VMWARE on. I have no clue how to install or use it but I dontwant to get an external company in to do this. I want to do on my own.
Maybe for now i can test and put our DC2 on VMWARE just to see if I can do this installation. Is there any FREE software that I can download that will run on normal laptop with Windows XP so that I can replicate the VMware environment. I want to install the VMware on a laptop and move DC2 to this to see if I can handle this installation. Also, what software can I sue to run on my current servers that will throw out a report to inform if my current servers meets the vmware requirements. Basically, can I create a test environment of vmware with no servers but on normal Windows XP pcs.
