What should I add to convert a Dell Poweredge 830 Server into a Virtual Lab environment ?
Posted on 2016-10-04
I have little resources but I have gotten my hands on a Dell Power edge 830 server .
I would like to use it as a Virtual Lab which would run 3 machines ( Dare I hope ) I would like to host Windows server 2012 or something around that .. as well as a windows 7/10 desktop and maybe Kali Linux or Mint with a virtualized network .
My goal is to work on Server Administration skills ,powershell skills , python and other scripting skills as well as some hacking skills .
I was thinking of buying a 3 terabyte Drive and some memory and hope that this could do it .
Can you provide any guidance as to how you would proceed in my case ?
