    RM dont support Virtual machines, although i'm sure someone could run vmware convertor over one of there CC3 DC's to give you an image

    It depends what he's asking for... an RM Build Server is completely different to a CC3 DC.

    Sorry my limited CC3 knowledge shines through, I take it from the comments the build tools/shares are never kept on the dc then? What I actually wanted to achieve was to setup a little test environment so if any of our customers have problem building any of machines onto CC3 we could be a little more proactive at our end helping them.

    Hi PeterW,

    I understand what you're saying and would suggest you either ...

    1) Only build your machines with the same 'hardware' as RM, particularly chipsets etc.

    2) Ship a 'new' machine of yours to an experienced CC3 network manager (several of us on here) and have them build the machine onto their network and accurately document the task and what was required outside of a default build environment.

    Hope this helps..


    PS. An "RM Build Server" is actually a small PC which RM use to deploy images onto server hardware for a build which is why I asked.

    Ahh sorry my bad use of RM terminology there. Thanks for the suggestions, we actually do kind of those things at the moment and don't normally have any problems, I'm just always looking for a backup plan incase any additional issues crop up.

    Cheers

    Nah, not your fault fella, just had me thinking ..

    Might be worth approaching RM to see if you can buy in a virtual environment similar to the one they sell us.

    As said you can costs about £1185; -

    Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Programme

    Option 4 - Purchase a Virtual Server solution
    Test MSIs on your premises with a Community Connect Virtual Server solution. This solution costs approx £1185, and includes installation, server software and 2 x client licences. For a Scope of Works and Quotation please contact isv@rm.com and ask for an 'ISV Virtual Server Solution Quotation'.

    As can see this is designed for software devs but could be used byself etc..
