Free virtual NT 4 server??
I'm sorry if this should be in the Virtual Server section, but it seemed more of a "is this possible?!?!" type question :)
Our school is still running AutoCAD R14 (stop sniggering at the back!), and the licence manager only runs on NT server 4. Which presents a problem since our 2 servers are 2008 64 bit.
I've tried running the licence manager on one of them, and it essentially told me to naff off even after some fairly judicious tweaking and other pockling.
I've got round it so far by having it running on a VERY old bit of kit donated by our network team which I'm pretty certain is going to pop at some stage.
So I'm looking at the next option - a virtual server running on one of our 64 bit beasts.
I can't use EsXI since the boxes are already up and running with a "normal" Windows setup.
MS appear to want money for Virtual server - and in tried and tested Education fashion, the school would ideally not want to pay anything at all :)
So is there a way I can run Virtual PC (or similar?) as a service?
The emulated PC doesn't have to do anything remotely clever. Heck, it doesn't even need to join the domain - just have a static IP and a couple of WINS/DNS settings.
Any advice gratefully appreciated!!
