partially afraid of being flamed, but im sure most will understand, but when i recently downsized my operation into virtual machines on a single host, i chose linux with the free vmware-server. vmware offers any type of networking set up i need, as well as consoles over the web or applications (in linux or windows), and on top of that, vmware server has full sets of vmware-tools that will control freebsd guests perfectly (ie, when i call shutdown on the host, each guests shuts down properly as the host waits for each one). i have 5 (production) separate servers running as guests, and they run well enough that i cant really even tell they are virtual. i really think bang for the buck, linux/vmware is the way to go for a production level VM setup. cheers, jonathan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
