You could think I am crazy to link this, but I thought this would be somthing to try at home, so here I am linking it.
http://www.yellow-bricks.com posted this blog post on ESX in Workstation ( site : http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2008/12/10/esx-in-workstation/ )
Lately I’ve been testing scripted builds of ESX hosts and several other tools like RDA. Because of this I had to reinstall my ESX hosts several times. Sometimes I actually had to completely delete them before I could start over again. You can consider this blog posting as a note to myself, this way I can do a simple search on my own blog when everything is screwed up again:
- Create Virtual Machine, Custom
- WS 6.5 Compatibility
- Linux Kernel, other
- Number of processors: 2
- Memory: 1024
- Bridged Networking (change to team later on)
- LSI Logic
- New disc, SCSI
- 6GB, pre-allocated, single file
- Customize hardware, remove: soundcard, usb, floppy
set execution mode to: Intel VT-x
- Edit .vmx and add the following:
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"
monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = "true"
- Install ESX
- Add VM to Team and select “LAN 1″ for networking(keep the test vm’s completely isolated)
I hope to try this as stated above.
