My ohter timewaste project load test vmware server (gsx) on centos 4.3
Ok i downloaded centos 4.3 from centos.org, installed on my vmwarebox server.ok now i need to install vmware gsx server.
untar setup.tar.gz (vmware gsx) to /root folder. Now need to run /.vmware-setup.pl …Bingo !!! thats it it will ask series of easy question
just give default 'enter' as answer :). it will compile kernel modules for vmware as centos is not built in for vmware gsx server. ( yo can install centos with gui …. but it requires developer tools , kernel developer rpms. Next it will ask network settings just use default settings and don;t enable NAT option while setting virtual networks(have some security issue with GSX 3.2 ,workaround update to GSX 3.2.1)
Now from my windows Xp laptop i used to connect vmware server vis vmware server console program. Its very fast and easy to use configure virtual boxex on your vmware server.
Ok now i created 3 virtual boxes on my vmware server 1.RHEL smaba server+oracle 10g 2.Solaris 10 intel version 3. windows xp. i stared at a time bingo i thought my vmware server will on knee but stragly it survived well.
Although Centos "TOP" command showing high usage with vmware servd deamon…..
