    As part of my studies for 70-290 I built a VM lab. First time doing virtualisation with servers.

    Made a Win2003 VM and set it up to use AD/DNS and DHCP. Made an XP VM and it connected to the domain straight away. DHCP worked too, it grabbed the first IP in the range.

    Should I really be getting this excited about this kind of stuff? :p lol

    I'm not far enough in the book to be doing this stuff, but it's far more fun messing around and finding out how things work.

    That is all. :p

    Sounds cool. I thought setting up VMs would be difficult but it's pretty straight forward :blink:p

    I don't think I'm that far forward yet although I have win2k3 and 3 xp pros and am still working out how to get Linux to work with them all. I use VPC not tried VMWare yet

    Oh I don't know mate, just jump in at the deep end. Best way I always learned. VPC is realy good, I just use VMWare because its what all the big companies use so beneficial to me. IMO VMWare is better and if you do a job search the VCP cert is highly regarded. Jim

    Yeh vmware is great. Our virtual environment is not overly complicated, and have oodles of resources in our two hosts so don't need to worry about the resource sharing and stuff like that so i have never really needed to delve too deep into it.

    This post is actually coming from a vista VM. Created it as our Dubai office went out and bought themselves laptop with it on it, so needed something for me to look at while i talk them through things :)

    If he's excited with virtual pc, it'll be interesting to see what happens when he experiences ESX!! :eek: :D


    Well done with your domain QS!

    Wha?

    Think I broke DNS by manually messing around with the settings :( lol

    Going to slow down and do the excercises as stated in the book as opposed to doing whatever the hell I like :p

    Don't forget that when you shut down virtual machines in vpc it asks you if you want the changes saved to disk. So, when you're playing with it and you break it then you can shut it down and it's back to the way it was when you started the vm (unbroken). Not sure if you have to configure this though, it's been a while since I used vpc and it seems that you cant run vmware workstation and vpc at the same time on the same machine.
