Subject Re: SnapshotRepository for Directory Studio
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2008 22:14:50 GMT
It's really easy with that vmware infrastructure client thingy we setup on
your machine the other day.  Just goto the menu and select new virtual
machine.  Then follow the wizard.  Give it the resources you need.  You
might want to experiment and create a few VM's you can delete them if you
like, when you like.

We have some ISO files under the software user for various operating systems
like Solaris x86 and Freebsd etc.  You can mount these ISO file's in the
CDROM/DVD under that device's configuration section.  If you like you can
also sudo su - software and wget new ISO image's from the web for various
operating systems and drop them into folders under this user.  Then you can
mount them on the CDROM.  This will allow your new VM to boot into the
operating system's installer.

If you have any problems ping me online and we can step through it.
