Benefits of virtualization

The Standalone Sysadmin has a nice post about where to start in the topic of virtualization.

VMware ESXi & existing virtual machines

When starting with the free (as in beer) ESXi product one challenge is to migrate existing virtual machines from the VMware Workstation or VMware Server products.

The easiest way to accomplish this task is to use the VMware Converter. It not only virtualizes physical machines but is also able to convert between the various virtual machine types.


My experience with VMware's software started with their first release of VMware workstation back in 1999 (or 1998?).

Back then it was possible to hack their evaluation license file to change the expiration date. Ah, the good old days...

Now, they still make great virtualization software, and their latest coup is to release the ESXi standard product for free.

The linked pages below document some of my experiences with VMware products and contain tips & tricks.

VMware Server Client & Ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron

VMware Server Client 1.0.6 issues errors when started on Ubuntu 8.04.

You can savely remove a library file from the VMware directory, as it also comes with Ubuntu (and in the correct version):

# sudo rm /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/libgcc_s.so.1
