Hi I decide to set up a simple server at home on my whitebox server by installing VMWare vSphere Server as a host server with all my primary DNS, AD & DHCP as virtual servers on the vSphere Server. As there is no dns server to resolve the vSphere Server hostname. During the initial vSphere Setup, I would not enter any dns server and hostname. IP address will be static and my XP Desktop will be used to connect to the vSphere Server to install the Client and to install the guest OS for DNS, DHCP and AD Server Would I know it may work? Any important point to take note. Thanks for your advices [!-- [[[ --]

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

Hello,

This sounds like a pretty basic configuration. Simply install VSphere on the server, once completed, browse to it. Download the client on another PC and manage it using the client.

It’s a matter of order. You can’t have a VM yet if you don’t have a VM Host yet. Keep that in mind during this install.
