Your next step is to install an operating system. Refer to the Appendix, “Virtual Machine Installation,” for instructions in how to install the generic VM operating system. Opening a Virtual Machine Opening a VM adds it to your inventory. Adding a VM in this way is common when you are copying VMs between host systems or restoring a VM. From the Library of Lee Bogdanoff CHAPTER 3 VMware Server 35 1. On the VMware Server Console menu, click File, Open or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+O to open the VM browse window.

The four clones took 30 minutes or so to copy to new VMs. Each VM had to be started individually to rename, create a new SID, and reboot. Two of the VMs required additional hard disk space, which took an extra 15 minutes each. Within 6 hours of arriving on site, our client had four new SQL Server systems that were production ready for that evening’s testing and deployment. This process was so fast because there was no need for inventory check-in, racking, cabling, plugging into power, or having to worry about cooling capacity for four new systems.

They are load balanced, but not in a way that provides maximum throughput or safety for the VMs. Load Balancer Switch FIGURE 1-3 Incorrectly load-balanced systems scenario with three virtual web servers and shared storage. Figure 1-4 shows a correctly load-balanced web service with shared network attached storage. Realize that this scenario shows a single VM guest per VM host as an example only. In an actual data center, each VM host would have several guest VMs performing various functions. Software Tests The use of VMs for software testing is one of the early applications of x86 virtualization.
