Share Desktop VMs and Servers VMs

Hello,

Is there any restriction to use the same ESX server for using to host Desktop virtual machines and also servers virtual machines ?

Or I need a dedicated server for Desktops and another dedicated server for Servers?

Wait for your comments

Thanks

Federico

I believe there is a restriction for running mixed workloads if you purchased one of the View bundles that included ESX licenses. If you already own enterprise ESX licenses you should be ok.

The only restriction may be from a licensing point of view; depending upon how you get the licensing.

Q: Can I run other server workloads on the vSphere that is included in View?

A: No. The vSphere and vCenter components of the View bundle are restricted to desktop deployments.

A desktop virtual machine is defined as a virtual machine running the following operating systems:

Windows 95/98, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Ultimate,

Windows Vista Business, or Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows 7.

The only exception to this rule are the components that make up the virtualized desktop infrastructure

(View Manager, vCenter Server, another Connection Broker and/or any management and performance

monitoring tools used solely for ESX-hosted Desktop Virtual Machine(s) within an operating system of a

Server). Download the EULA here for more details http://www.vmware.com/download/eula/.
