Vmware 64 bits on 32 bits OS host


I just create a vm image with 2 CPUs to be used on a one CPU machine.
it works great. Now, i am thinking about creating a 64 bits Redhat VM image to be run on my 32 bits machine. Is that possible?
Is there anything i should be aware of?

I did it on Widows so I'd guess linux would also do that. I did have a true 64 bit fully supported system so that may be the exact issue. Qemu can run either on a 32 bit system but it works differently.

Hi.

Workstation and VMware Server require a 64bit CPU to run a 64bit guest operating system.
See entire article at the Knowledge Base http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/mic...rnalId=1003945
