I've been thinking about using VmWare's Fault tolerance for a while and I would like to create a little test lab with 2 identical desktops workstations that we have lying around on our office with the following specs:
Windows Server 2008 R2
8GB of Ram
1 500GB SATA drive
I intend to install the Esxi on both of them then create 2 Vms on each one, one for running in fault tolerance, and another in HA with vCenter.
My questions are:
- Can I do this with the free 60 day trial that can be downloaded on the vmWare site?
- Is the Storage Appliance included (VSA) in that trial?
- Can the VSA use the same 500GB drive that the esxi is installed or would I need another drive to use for VSA?
Thanks in advance!
