Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This can be done, but it won’t provide you with a very good high availability solution as you have to logged into the machine’s console to start VMware Workstation. So if the host machine is rebooted then you’ll have to manually start the virtual machines.

You might want to get ESXi or VMware Server (if you need to keep Windows or Linux has the host OS) so that you the hyper-visor starts up automatically and you can configure the VMs to start automatically.

This <a href=”http://exchangeexchange.com/blogs/bkeane/archive/2007/07/30/mscs-clustering-in-vmware.aspx”>post shows</a> how to cluster Windows 2003 under ESX.
