    Lab Manager Evaluation - use an existing ESX 3.5 Host

    Jamin Enthusiast

       

      We've been using VMware ESX for a while, and now wish to evaluate Lab Manager.  Here are some preliminary questions:

       

       

      1) If I choose to use an existing ESX host for evaluating Lab Manager, what is the impact to existing VM's and the ESX host during the course of the eval?

       

       

                           Does the LabManager agent install (or uninstall) require a eboot of the ESX host?

       

       

       

      2) I already have 1 VMkernel Port on VSwitch 0 for NFS.  Do I need to create another? Should it be in another Vswitch?

       

       

       

       

       

      3) Will I get a satisfactory trial using a host with VM's already in place, or do I need a fresh install?
