Chapter 9: Creating and Managing Virtual Machines

Create a virtual machine. A VM is a collection of virtual hardware pieces, like a physical system — one or more virtual CPUs, RAM, video card, SCSI devices, IDE devices, floppy drives, parallel and serial ports, and network adapters. This virtual hardware is virtualized and abstracted from the underlying physical hardware, providing portability to the VM.

Master It Create two VMs, one intended to run Windows Server 2008 R2 and a second intended to run SLES 11 (64-bit). Make a list of the differences in the configuration that are suggested by the Create New Virtual Machine wizard.

Solution vCenter Server suggests 1 GB of RAM, an LSI Logic parallel SCSI controller, and a 16 GB virtual disk for 64-bit SLES 11; for Windows Server 2008 R2, the recommendations are 4 GB of RAM, an LSI Logic SAS controller, and a 40 GB virtual disk.
