Ways to set up Virtual Machines on Server 2008R2 if I can't run Hyper V?
Posted on 2010-09-22
I just got several used HP Proliant DL380 G4 servers. It has 2 Intel Xeon 3.6GHz processors.
I've successfully installed Windows server 2008R2 on it I would like to run Virtual Machines on it but the processors do not support Hyper-V. Is there some other reasonable way I can run VM's without using th e Hyper-V feature? Some older VM mechanism from Microsoft that would work?
I'm new to Virtual machines and want to play around with it a little. It doesn't have to go into production right away. I'd like to stay with Server 2008R2 if possible.
