VMware is virtual machine software that provides a virtualized set of hardware (a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk adapters) to the guest operating system. VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the point of suspension. VMware's enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are bare-metal embedded Hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

I will try this product on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 soon and let you know the result.
By the way are you aware on a upgrade of this product to version 2. It should be released till the end of April 2017 and it seems you can do an export to VMDK (even for those who are interested, Directly on HYPER V VM).

Shame it's not released yet...

Hi,

I'm trying to connect a virtual machine (on ESXi 6) to Internet. I have seen most people can do it just with install vmware tools, but it doesn't work for me. Can you help me to configure it? I have an ESXi 6 server and I have two Vmachines (ubuntu and windows), neither of them are connected to Internet. Windows VM has a dhcp configuration (I'm not sure if it's ok, I supouse vStwich gives Internet...) How do I have to configure the vm? or the server? or the vSwitch?
Thanks

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your message.  I'll flesh it out a bit and then submit it again.

I have a related question:  If I have a topic/article/post that I only want to post to the Paessler Topics page, does it still go through independent review?  I tagged "paessler" on several articles, but haven't been asked to review or approve them.  Who decides what can appear on our topics page?

(um, to avoid confusion, yes, I'd like to post this article to several topics, after it meets the requirements for an article.  My question is more a hypothetical one, in case I have things to post only to the Paessler topics page at some point).

Thanks for your help!
