WMWare server question

WMWare server question

WMWare server question

Hello all-

I installed VMWare Server on my Windows 2003 server, can anyone point out a url link on how to just get started creating a vm on it?

Just a short step by step. This is the freeware version so I am not sure if whether I should be expecting too much out of this product but have heard it can at least allow you create a vm.



RE: WMWare server question

google is your friend. There are literally hundreds of blogs and guides about vmware server out there just try looking.

When I was born I was so suprised I didn't talk for 18 months

RE: WMWare server question

What exactly are you trying to do and what program are you using? VMWare Player, Workstation, or Server? Trial versions or free?

RE: WMWare server question

Thanks to all


I am using VMWARE Server (free) to just get acquainted with the product. At this point, just would like to build a VM from scratch.

Once I am comfortable with this process, perhaps begin taking existing vmdk, vmx files and create other vm's from these.

Thanks again


RE: WMWare server question

Thanks to everyone,

You are all extremely informative and humble technical warriors (couldn't help it, my 3 yr old daughter and I just watched Kungfu Panda)

good evening


RE: WMWare server question


Is there anywhere I can grab a general ISO image of a windows 2000 or 2003 standard server so that I can practice building a VM?

Or how can I take my CD of Windows 2003 server and create an ISO.. never did this before and apologize in advance for the 101 question


RE: WMWare server question

Oh wow!

Thanks a ton BB!!!

Excellent work for all on this thread, couldn't meet a nicer nor a more informative bunch of technical pros!
