Command View on a Virtual Machine?

Can this be done? Can you put Command View on a VMware VM running Windows 2003?

I should state this is CV EVA.

Re: Command View on a Virtual Machine?

William,

you cannot do it in a VM on an ESX host, since you cannot give those VMs a virtual FC HBA. (there are only virtual SCSI HBAs in ESX)

you could try the new VMware Server 2.0. as this is a hosted virtualization platform you can basically map physical HW supported on the host OS into a VM, so this *could* be feasible while it is certainly not supported

Regards,
Bernhard

Hi William,

I tried this on ESX server 3.0.1 and couldn't get it to work.

You don't however say which of VMware's products you're using...

Cheers,

Rob

Re: Command View on a Virtual Machine?

CommandView EVA is currently not supported by HP with any ESX VMware release up through ESX 3.0.1. There are some new capabilities in ESX 3.5, but it is too early for that to have been evaluated and tested.
