Need a guide on how to quickly set up VMware-server-2.0.2-203138 within Server 2008 SP2 so that I can install Windows virtual machines using VMWare; please provide me with this info.

I have set up VMWare virtual machines using VMWare workstation before, but VMware-server-2.0.2-203138 is still very new to me. I need to use it to set up several virtual machines within Windows Server 2008.

Please provide me with a guide or information on how to quickly set up virtual machines using VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.

A simple guide or set of instructions will be a lot more helpful than a complete manual.

Oops...just saw that you didn't want a complete manual..sorry :)

Basically tho, starting on pg. 59, it shows you how to create a VM. But, you have to have a 'storage location' (i.e. datastore) to house your VMs. You can find more about that on pg. 108/110 (add datastore).

Let me know if you need/want more info.

Basically, once you have your datastore set up, you can click to 'Create a new virtual machine' in the Server console and go through the wizard to configure its settings. Once that's done, make sure the CD is set to use "physical drive" (or use location of ISO) to actually install your OS. Once the VM is created, insert your OS DVD in the VMware Server host CD/DVD drive, power on the VM, and install like you would on a physical box. :)
