Just a warning.
I had my CMIS eportal server also running VMWare Server 1.x OK.
Just upgraded to VMWare Server 2.0 this last night and killed ePortal.
Serco said they didn't know of any issues with VMWare and spent an hour over a remote desktop trying to fix it. In the end I uninstalled VMWare and eportal's back.
Out of any interest, has anyone got eportal and VMWare Server 2 running on the same server OK? I don't mean running eportal on a VM.
