    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this has already been asked. Did a search with no results…

    I am looking at building a new VM Ware Server for home usage. I would like to virtualize it and I am looking for a good virtual solution with out spending alot of money on software.

    I currently run the free version of VM Ware on a Dual PIII Server with 1GB of RAM. Gets the job done but slowly. I am looking at upgrading to a Dual, Dual Core Opteron system with 8GB of RAM.

    My question is, does the free version of VM Ware have a Hardware/Core Limit? I downloaded XEN Server and tested it on a server at work Dual, Intel Quads, and it found all 8 cores but only used one. Would I run into this same issue with VM Ware? I am unable to test on the Intel box since it is now in production… :(

    I have check on [IMG]http://www.vmware.com/products/server/[/IMG] Site and had no luck. Quite possibly overl00ked it too…

    Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. If more information is needed please ask.
