I am about to start a consolidation project in my datacenter. I will be changing over 10-12 physical Netware servers (5.1 to 6.5 upgrades and 6.5 servers) to virtuals on 2 Dell 2800s with 12GB of RAM and dual 3.4 procs. I am totally new to this. All the help I can get is much appreciated. I have done two small Windows servers (SNMP and Blackberry) just to get my feet wet but Netware is a different monster. Ideas? Thoughts? Advice? Basic understanding? Anything would be a help.

Play around with ESX and explore all of it's features. Experience is a great teacher, the more hands on you get with it the more skilled you'll become
