"newbie" try to get started with VMware Server 2 ~ ~ homepage of VMware Server - Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage

Hello, I downloaded and installed the new FREE VMware Server 2 on Windows Vista.

The only customization I did was to change the target folder to C:\VMwareServer2

There is a desktop icon VMware Server Home Page , I think it's supposed to allow me to manage VMware Server 2 BUT:

https://Ramblewood:8333 / ui /.

Was not able to connect, the connection was refused when attempting to contact ramblewood:8333.

I had hoped all VMware Server 2 would just go 'out of the box. "

just like the competitors of this another software company.

In which case it was browser related, I installed Firefox 3... no difference.

No idea what could be wrong here?

Thank you in advance.

Looks like you have one of two problems:

  1. The VMware Server service does not work. You can check this by opening Windows Services console (start > run > services.msc) and find names of service starting with "VMware".... »

  2. Your hostname cannot solve on your local machine. Try going to https://localhost:8333 / ui /

    Hello, I'm just getting started with VMWARE. I downloaded VMWARE server I would ask what book would be a good book to start? I'm looking for something that will tell me how to install and configure VMWARE server for a beinger. Thoughts?

    Welcome to the Forums!

    You can find lots of good information on vmware server on vmware website located here:


    This is the ' book online' real provided by vmware:


    You'll find everything you need to know with the basic.  There are a few books out there, but they are not up-to-date regarding new versions of Vmware Server.  Most users always seem to use Workstation or "free ESXi.  You get free ESXi 60 days fully unlocked and I use it in my lab at home virtualized on vmware workstation.  I think you could do the same with vmware server, but never did.

    The only good book I could find was this:

  • Getting started with VMware ESXi

    Please forgive me, because I'm just getting started with virtualization in the data center (ESX and ESXi). I been using virtualization desktop and server (player and GSX Server and Workstation) for several years now and I'd like to see if ESXi would be a good choice for an amateur system in order to use a training platform.

    Are my limited infrastructure management tools, or are there third-party or community free equivalents that will make the most much (not necessarily all) Infrastructure functions for me getting started with ESXi? I can't afford the cost of a license of Infrastructure to learn just the platform and also have a few questions regarding the ESXi environment.

    ESXi abstract everything, or I can pass through some devices (for example, a map of Zaptel for VoIP Asterisk) to a guest operating system? That would be my only reason for the use of a Linux host and stick with VMware Server instead of going completely virtual.

    Any assistance to the start-up, as well as good resources for someone new data center virtualization (no virtualization in general) would be very appreciated. I tried to read some briefs VMware tech directly, and a part of the documentation can be downright confusing.

    Thanks in advance, and I look forward to the next meeting.

    ESX are equipped with a fully functioing 60 days trial license - ESXi when correctly entered, you will receive an unexpiring licenses to run ESXi - discover https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/?p=esxi

  • How to get started with vmware in the SMB

    Hello world

    I read through this forum to help me understand more about vmware. I think that I have only a very basic understanding of vmware, so ask your recommendations for the project, I'm about to start.

    We are a company SMB with 3 offices in 3 places. We are about to implement a new software which runs on separate SQL 2005 servers in all 3 offices.

    I intend to provide all 3 offices with a similar configuration and have the servers SQL replicated during the night.

    The necessary servers are SQL server, file server and license server.

    The material I've been watching is DELL R710 or PE2950III PE. The number of people using the software would be about 5 to 6 for each office.

    Now, my goal is to move finally all our servers in a virtual machine, but to keep it simple for now, let me just start with what it takes for my project.

    My plan is to buy 1 server for each office and make them run 2 VMs each (SQL, Server license). With respect to the file server, I could use the local storage of the physical server.

    I am aware that this configuration will give me any redundancy in the case of a material error in the physical machine, but I'm hoping to expand my setup with the budget for the next fiscal year and buy the redundant servers.

    So I'm trying to get to the top and now works with spending too much on the material, but I still want to be able to move to a business solution from vmware that allows me to move VM is 1 physical machine to another, etc..

    I wonder now, what software to use for my project. I've been mainly reading on ESX and ESXi. I was looking at the license to the Foundation, but not sure that ESXi makes much sense at all if I have my VMs on 1 physical computer only.

    Then the VMware Server would be a better solution for me? If I decide to VMWare Server, can I still upgrade ESXi later?

    If I go with ESXi, I understand that I can have embedded it or installed. I guess that I can't use the local file storage when using the embedded version of ESXi?

    If I install ESXi, however, I have to start in Win Server 2003 or 2008 first that requires a separate license again and then install ESXi on its own partition on a Raid1 array. I would then use a Raid 5 for all virtual machines.

    Also with ESXi, would I be able to upgrade to a later version of ESXi with my setup? I guess that all the virtual machines must be stopped for an upgrade to ESXi?

    Appreciate any advice.

    See you soon

    Yes, this seems a sensible approach. As you are new to do this of course, you understand the different options of ESX here because it can be a little confusing to start. Going with Vmware server path would be much more disruptive in the future that you will suffer more downtime to make the change. Just to be clear, VMware Server is one where we have an application that runs on Windows (or Linux) to provide the functionality of virtualization. ESX or otherwise runs directly on the hardware.

    ESXi free edition, this may be an option for you initially, but you can not manage it with vCenter. You must use the VI Client directly to each box, failed to get the enterprise as vmotion etc features. With a single server, initially, this could be a good starting point.

    With paid for ESX you will have many other options, note the ESX layer features are essentially the same although we allow them just allows you to add the other stuff by taking the commercial offer.

    At this point it is assumed that you have vCenter somehow, so you will need a Windows Server to the host which can be a virtual machine if you want. If you started with the edition free is simply a matter of connection of the device of vCenter for ESXi nodes and they get activated with the management features - no downtime is necessary.

    Then you have 2 choices for ESXi

    (1) install on HDD or USB

    (2) buy what it come pre-installed with your server.

    The question is then what edition you purchase. We have some packages SMB has been called Essentials or Essentials more, but they are limited to a maximum of three servers altogether, it would be ok for you in you're first scenario but if you then want to make each site two nodes, so you'd not nowhere to go, a nd currently is not a licensing mechanism to upgrade , that's why I suggest you seriously consider 'Standard '.

Maybe you are looking for
