Hi Guys,

I'm new to VMWare hence still trialing this technology. I've download vmware center 4.1 update, extracted and burned the files onto DVD. Im my lab Dell server has the following specs:


Dell PowerEdge SC1435
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2
Dual Core AMD Processor 22212, 2.00 GHz,
2.00 GB of RAM
75GB

When i tried to installed the vCenter 4.1, inside a virtual guest server of windows 2003 R2, the installation wouldn't complete because of the below message.

The processor is not supported.please contact your vendor ...

The vSphere 4.1 host was installed in the above host server. How come the vCenter would not install?

Is my RAM not enough? The recommended is 3GB? My specs although less it should allow the vCenter to complete the installation?

And I cannot seem to find the link for vCenter 4.0 server evaluation version?

Appreciate your help.

Hi

VMware vCenter 4.1 needs a 64 bits server and System Operation.

Is this the case?

As Bestway has stated you'll need to use a 64bit Operating System for vCenter 4.1 installation.

I would recommend a Windows 2008 Server 64 bit.

Is there a particular reason why would Windows 2008 O/S 64x  bit takes ages to complete when installing it from VM guest with using the host server above?

Hi

That is a different question.

Installing vCenter is one, installing ESX on that host, then a VM on that host is another.

Regarding installing a vCenter on that server, you need a 64 bit System Operation(Windows 2003 or Windows 2008).
