    Folks,

    need help here. I am setting up my vmware lab. I do have Laptop as a host installing vmware workstation 7. I need to setup server 2003 connected through virtual network to another guest client xp. Is that possible? How is that?

    Hope to hear from you.

    Thanks.

    If I remember workstation 7 correctly, you can set up your virtual machines into a team would be the quickest and easiest way to do it?

    also if you go to edit - virtual network editor, you will be able to set up a lot of different network settings there

    not sure about workstation but in server you can just set them all to use NAT and thats about all you have to do.

    When using the network adapters used the bridged option on network connection for settings in server and client machine. :):)

    Do not used the NAT option as it does not work.

    Um, yes it does
    but it doesn't happen to be the best choice for this sort of deployment
    either Bridged, or a custom VMNet with it's own subnet would be desirable

    When you install (or after installation) the guest systems you can configure the settings for each guest by clicking on the link "Edit virtual machine settings" . From there you can select the network adapter and in the side panel you can select the Custom: specific virtual network and choose which virtual network to use for the guest machine. You will also need to do this for both guests so they are on the same virtual network.

    guys, so you mean that having vmware workstation could do the guest networking too? Were you suggesting that Vmware Workstation Seven may do so well for my network lab?

    Thanks

    Sure it's good enough. The biggest problem is the amount of RAM that you have. Each guest takes up a certain amount, the more you give each guest the better it runs but the worse off you are overall. Another factor is the type and speed of your hard disks, the faster they are the better.
