reasonable limit?? reasonable limit?? aftertaf (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 9 Jul 04 07:52 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 DDRthx RE: reasonable limit?? comtec17 (Vendor) 9 Jul 04 08:05 I believe the max. supported on one ESX server is 25. RE: reasonable limit?? Beboen (TechnicalUser) 10 Jul 04 18:12 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?? aftertaf (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 12 Jul 04 02:30 thxgonna boost the memory and set up 3 or 4 servers....will be fun :) RE: reasonable limit?? Willy2782 (MIS) 14 Jul 04 00:22 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?? Steveheart (MIS) 27 Jul 04 04:23 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.
