    Running on VMWare

    Has anyone run this in the real world on a wmare server during this year?

    Would rather have something that I can shutdown when finished than to have to keep the rubish software installed permanently.

    Re: Running on VMWare

    I just left it on our secondary curriculum server- doesn't seem to cause any problems really. I hadn't thought of a VM for it- but wouldn't the RAM requirements be quite high for that? The Workstation idea is a good one- I might even do that myself (Just to keep the software "off server"...in case that famous RM stability fails me).

    Re: Running on VMWare

    Well downloaded vmware server to have a play and trying to install it on a server 2003 sp1 machine I get:

    Internal Error 2203:

    c:\windows\installer\8c26f4b5.ipi,-2147024629

    The installer stops at that point and rollsback after I click "OK"

    Can't find anything on the vmware site or google about this exact problem.

    Re: Running on VMWare

    Since using a VM isn't an approved configuration, won't RM and all the other bods get a bit shirty?

    Thats a possibility but then there shouldn't be any reason for them to know

    I'm going to budget for a little server next year to run all of these online tests just something simple with plenty of ram and a couple of hard disks.

    I don't htink this is the case because the software is approved to run on Windows or Redhat. IMO the fact that it may be a virtual server is irrelevant because it is running on the prescribed O/S

    Re: Running on VMWare

    Also solved my inability to install vmware server today seems there must have been something wrong with the user I was logged on as I suspect the temp directory.

    Logged on as local admin and it installed fine.
