PostPosted: Thu Oct 23, 2008 6:00 am    Post subject: Virtual Server Reply with quote

I have VMware Workstation 6.5.0 build-118166 installed, which works just fine, but I have so many programs on this workstation running that it can slow down. At this point I am looking for a different solution. Is it possible to install vmware or something similar on a headless server, which I have in the back and I use some kind of a client to run the virtual machine on that machine and stream it over the network?
My fileserver in the the other room is quiet the fast machine.

Any ideas?

how about xen? boot your virtual machines as domU machines, and then rdesktop or ssh to them.

XEN installs a special kernel and I need the vanilla-kernel, because of some patches I use.

have a look at kvm or virtualbox

Quote:
Just start a new VBox session with VBoxManage startvm <vm name> -type vrdp . Then attach to it with an RDP client, for example rdesktop on Linux. This feature is only available with the non-OSE version.
