bumped ... I hope someone has some ideas.
I honestly doubt you'll find much help. VMware server went End Of Support almost 18 months ago....
Thanks for that piece of information.
Just wondering ... do you know what's the closest free vmware flavor that matches as closely to what enterprises are using now to create vm server environment? I just want to test it at home on a laptop - building VMs for Oracle RAC in Solaris.
There are so many of them https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads ... and I'm not sure which ones I should be checking out or the differences, for that matter.
The closest thing you will find to VMware Server 2 will be VMware Player. This is a free download. The VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) listed on that page (or one of its licensed versions) is more likely what enterprises or larger shops would be using, but this isn't going to work on a laptop.
