  • Reconfiguring network switches as 802.1q VLAN trunks for VMware ESX implementation

    My data center network switches are configured as access ports, but we are soon implementing VMware ESX. Is there an easy way to reconfigure the switches to operate as 802.1q VLAN trunks to take advantage of VMware's VLAN management support?

  • ESX Hardware configuration

    I am interested in bringing up an ESX Server to learn more. I have tried the Evals and am now willing to purchase the product. I have no need to purchase high-end hardware as there will be very few users. Does anyone have a specific hardware list (m/b model, etc)? Thanks in advance
