Hello,
 I have that new VMware ESX 5.0 virtual environment and I have created and P2V most of my physical servers. I have a few servers which are using serial connection to other servers.

So I have two questions:

1. How to virtualy connect serial to serial between two VMs and how to test the connection

2. One of my servers has serial connestion to a Perl box which translates in to IP. My PBX connects there and communicats with the server. How to configure my VM to have a serial but to be converted to IP and then I can point my PBX to that IP address.


Let me know if you need more information.


Thank you,
Plamen

1. Use a USB to Serial Port converter, and attach to the VM via USB. See my article on how to connect a USB device.

HOW TO: Add and Connect a USB Device to a Virtual Machine, hosted on VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESX 4.1 ESXi 4.1, ESXi 5.0

you can also use TCP/IP to network Serial devices we use these as well, but these are far more expensive, that a $20 USB to serial port converter.

2. Use a TCP/IP to network Serial devices
