Hi everyone!

 

So I have now set up my ESXi 5.1 (AMD FX-6100, 16GB RAM).

I want to run a fileserver, and that is almost done.

 

Now I would like some tips on "necessary"  ;) VMs to run!

 

Thank you!  :)

Yes it very well could, but I think I am going to run Windows Server 2012 and try some new storage features.

 

Other VMs I can run?

Webserver?

You can run the add-ons for WHS but you are looking at a $50 cost for WHS versus $$$$$ for server 2012 , unless you have a Techno subscription.

 

WHS is a webserver.

Without question, I would use an add on over Storage spaces.  If that is your thrust than skip it for any OS you choose.
