Recently decided to try out VMWare ESX.
- ESX offers two management interfaces, a desktop client or a browser interface. Neither support the Mac.
- It looks like you must use the "Virtual Infrastructure Client", a windows app, to get started using ESX
- Took me a little bit to figure out how to get ESX running inside Fusion. Virtualization.info had some good pointers. Watch out if you're copying from the web for "smart quotes". Curly quotes will crash VMware right quick
In case you're wondering, the key lines to add/edit in the vmx file are:
scsi0.VirtualDev = "lsilogic" ethernet0.virtualdev = "e1000" monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = TRUE monitor_control.vt32 = TRUE
