I have a customer who is inclined to consolidate their 5-10K users from
a couple of qmail servers onto a "high power" VMWare server. I
understand VMWare conceptually, and have seen some minor conflicts noted
in general email threads for other products. However, I haven't worked
directly with VMWare, so some of this concern/interest is academic.
Anyhow, I'm concerned that kernel modifications, low-level disk
behaviors, loadable modules, or "tweaked" native libraries under VMWare
might create unintended hurdles to such a setup being successful.
Anyone have any experience or advice for such a scenario?
