Best practices? Setting up CentOS 5.5 + ESXi 4.0 -- Dell PowerEdge
I do not want to waste anyone's time but the system suggested I post to unlock all available options, so here goes. I am getting ready to setup a Centos 5.5 server with Hypervisor for a virtual server and am looking for best practices to reduce the numder of times I install.
virtualization with ESX requires a CPU that has certain features your servers certainly never had - they are too old for that. So if this is all you have, you might be able to pull off something more simple and basic with containers, but not full virtualization like ESX or KVM provides.
