Moving from VMware GSX Server to VMWare Server

Posted by Kirby Turner on April 26, 2006

I upgrade my server install of VMware GSX Server with VMware Server, a free virtualization product for Windows and Linux currently in beta. The VMware Server install went smoothly. It detected the GSX install and uninstalled it for me. It copied the appropriate settings over to VMware Server and my virtual machines were up and running again in a matter of minutes.

VMware Server is an improvement on GSX Server. Most notable improvement is that it works with virtual machines created with VMware Workstation 5.x. No more hacking the .vmdk file to make it work with GSX.
