I am currently running VMware server 2, and have succesfully created a several virtual machines (XP, Vista and Linux). However, the problem I'm having (and it's one that I have read about and found several solutions, but not one that suits) is that I need a new instance of the VM to be spawned for each user that connects.
Other solutions that have been suggested already include setting up Terminal Services on the Windows Boxes and configuring X for multiple sessions on the Linux boxes, however, this is something we'd only consider if there were no other options.
Any hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Welcoem to the Forums - Depnding on how many of these VM instances you spawn you will quickly find VMware Server will become overloaded - Since it sounds like you are looking to deploy desktops I would take a look at VMware View - http://www.vmware.com/products/view/overview.html - you can even purchase base on the number of workstations you are looking to host -
