This seems like the best forum to post this in - has anyone here been working with ESXi server?
I managed to get it installed on one of my thinkcentre machines with SATA drives - that's a P4 with hyperthreading (so it appears as two processors to some software)
What I'm curious about is whether anyone has managed to install ESXi (free version) on a multi-CPU machine - reading through the literature that's available, it seems if you want to install on a machine with more than one CPU, you need to purchase a license.
My interest in it is that a white box with multiple CPUs (especially if I can dedicate a CPU to a more performance hungry server) may work well for my Home LAN. (No, I haven't posted my LAN diagram as it's still in progress...)
