I got a free licence from vmware, downloaded it, burned it on a CD and installed vmware ESXi 4 on its 1GB card to act as hypervisor. Then I allocated all hard disk space (~600GB) as a single datastorage repository. So far so good. I also got vSphere as evaluation and installed it on a seperate machine, specifically my computer. Finally created a new virtual machine running Windows 2008 R2 on it and works OK too. What I need to know are two things: 1-Are these licences free? or we shall buy some? 2-Downloading from the datastore to a PC via network takes ages? what is the best method? Thanks all for your help Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
