reasonable limit??

reasonable limit??

reasonable limit??

what is the n° of machines you can emulate with VMWare.... i want to try for my 70-216 and route/vpn an all that fun....

Athlon 1Giga, 512 DDR

RE: reasonable limit??

I believe the max. supported on one ESX server is 25.  

RE: reasonable limit??

Well, I've passed 70-216 a while ago in the VMware 3.x era...

It the total # of virtual machines depends on your hardware (mainly memory) but I guess that's not the answer you are looking for. Theoretical max I don't know but I guess it was something around 125.

I've run tests with up to 8 virtual machines on old quad Pentium Xeon 700 or 900 w/ 4 Gigs and that still runs smooooth .

Microsoft, not just A company

RE: reasonable limit??

gonna boost the memory and set up 3 or 4 servers....

will be fun :)

RE: reasonable limit??

I really don't know the limits I know it all depends on your hardware special memory and if you want best performance scsi. I have been running VMware GSX with around five servers on the host machine and just works great....Dual AMD 2.0 with 4GB Memory and 15000RPM SCSI in the other hand I really happy that we know have a VMWARE Forum great product.....

RE: reasonable limit??

First of all, it depends on the HW. But with VMWare ESX 2.1.x you can run up to 90 Machines while max. 200 configured machines are possible.
