Iain Posted June 9, 2009 Share Posted June 9, 2009 I've been following the virtualisation discussion and episodes and they've stimulated me into getting on with something, particularly as I have a "significant" birthday approaching! I don't want to virtualise a real live network but I would like to create a virtual domain so I can learn. Does anyone have a Technet subscription who could answer some questions? 1. Is it possible to install the various operating systems into VMWare Server or can they be installed only into real systems (I ask because I have had no luck installing an unused OEM XP Pro into Microsoft Virtual PC)? 2. Can I install the software to create several virtual XP Pro PCs or W2K3 servers simultaneously (to have a realistic virtual domain) in VMWare Server? I realise that the software is for evaluation purposes and shouldn't be used in a real live network. 3. If I cancel the subscription after the first year, could I continue to use the software that I had or would I have to uninstall it? Would the keys still work? Thanks for your time.
