Install VMware server on Debian Etch in an Hetzner RootServer

January 12, 2008

In this tutorial I’ll explain you how to install Vmware Server on Hetzner.de Rootserver with Debian Etch OS installed.

 

Note:

 

I’ve searched over the net many setup articles about vmware and Debian Etch, but unfortunately I haven’t found any good tutorial for me. I’m sure that your question is: “Why you haven’t found any good tutorial? Entire internet talks about Vmware products installation!” If you are in this page you are an unfortunately user as me. 🙂 You have to know that Hetzner have a limitation in his IP addresses. In fact, to block IP Spoofing, Hetzner don’t allow IP address sharing and Bridged configuration don’t works with Vmware. There are limitations also when you try to install Xen and others virtualization solutions with bridged network configuration except for OpenVZ. At the moment I’ve seen that OpenVZ have many bugs and there isn’t an updated frontend to manage simply the virtual servers configured. VMware Server is free and give you a Console to manage remotely VPS from Linux or Windows system. I’ve personally tested VMware Server 1.04 on RootServer DS7000 with AMD Athlon X2 6000+ and 6gb of RAM. It runs fine, but I think that if you want a very performant system, virtualization not is very well.
