Moving on from VMWare Player
Recently I converted 2 old w2k3 servers into VMWare V5 machines using VMConvertor and they deployed them onto new W2k8 servers running VMPlayer
On my other exisiting W2k3 machines, I simply used to run VMServer V1 or V2 but AFACT I can no longer get a free VMWare server software so that's how I ended up on VMplayer.
Now VMplayer isn't cutting it as it doesn't autorestart after mains failures and needs manual intervention so I need something else.
I tried installing the W2k8 hypervisor role but it said it couldn't co-exist with VMplayer so I had to abandon that.
So, I don't really care what VM software I'm using but I have 2 schools with VMWare V5 machines that I'd need to migrate to new setup.
Could I have some recommendations as to what path to take please :)
