Vmware View Update 1

As I blogged in this post, I’m testing Vmware View to develop a training for the company I often work for.

This weekend I greated the basic setup. I installed a ESX 3.5 U3 server on a Dell Poweredge 2900.  On this host I created 2 virtual machines:

vCenter
Windows 2003 SP2 (192.168.1.10/24)
AD called VMWARE.LOCAL with one OU called USER where I created a user for myself (Mike)
DNS and DHCP server
Virtual Center 2.5 U3 (duh)

vView (192.168.1.11/24)
Windows 2003 SP2
Member of the VMWARE.local AD
a share called data with all the necessary software to install Vmware view

I know it’s not the best solution to put my vCenter server on the ESX host it’s managing but this is just a test setup. In real life I would take a physical vCenter server.

Next week, I’m going to install the Vmware View software.

    Little update: I also installed a Win2003 server that will act as a security server.
