Vmware Vcenter, on which servers to install ?
Posted on 2011-03-03
I have Vmware essential. I want to install Vcenter Server for managing my vmware host (two hosts). But I don't know where should I install the vcenter server.
There are my options;
I have the following server
1 virtualized Windows 2008 32bits Domain controller, file server. (4gb ram)
1 virtualized Windows 2008 R2 Exchange server (8gb ram)
1 virtualized Windows 2008 R2 Terminal server (8gb ram)
1 virtualized Windows 2008 R2 for access card and security camera but on a branch office (I would prefer not to install vcenter on a remote office)
I wished to install the vcenter on my windows 2008 domain controller.. but I can't since it's 32 bits.
What would be the better choice ? Exchange server or TS ?
Also, I have Eopen licence for my Windows 2008... could I use the same serial number two times ? so like that I could configure another windows 2008 R2 excusively for vcenter and other minor things like that ?
I don't want to have to buy another windows Licence..
