    Now i thought this was going to be really difficult but i was in for a suprise! I got a server and client running in about 2 hours.. DNS and DHCP all enabled and ready for when i start the hands on for XP which should be this time next week! As a matter of interest i tried using the stuff mention in this Thread and they work like a charm... just some advice to a newbie setting up there first VMWare network! oh and 1gb of RAM is a must! :biggrin Thanks to everyone who gave advice!

    Well done Zimbo!

    IGB of RAM is nice to have for sure but for others that might read this it is not a necessity.

    Right got my virtual network started

    started with 2 win2k servers and 1 xp pro client

    1 win2k server domain controller and exchange 2000 server

    upgraded both to win2003 and exchange 2003

    2nd server still has win2k server although will be getting upgraded and WSUS installed

    XP client was just a cd install

    added a MS-DOS virtual machine now using this to RIS another XP Pro Client

    might try imaging this 2nd client when it is finished as i have not done this before does anyone have any tips for doing this in the virtual enviroment ?


    cheers
    Mick

    don't you just love VMWare, I could'nt live without it. Prior to VMWare I used to have a room stuffed with kit so I could go through stuff in my own time and boy was it noisy. Now I have VMWare all that has gone, the giant monitor and kvm has been replaced by a nice flat panel monitor, the old desktops and the incredibly nosiy proliant 1600 are in computer heaven, the only thing that remains are the 2 2500 routers although I do have a copy of routersim it is nice to have a couple of subnets so I can set up a couple of AD sites, so we are down to 2 pc's now and a pair of routers!

    When I was doing my CCNA, I had 2 servers, 2 routers and about 8 NICs

    Now that was fun configuring
