Am feeling a touch confused and overwhemled. From what I gather even though ESXi is free I will only be able to manage my VMs (create or power on etc) for 60 days unless I buy a licence for vSphere. This is somewhat frustrating. As I am looking for a home lab to practice for various certs I was hoping to also practice using vmware stuff to do so. Have I got the wrong end of the stick? Is there a free built in web interface like there was with VMServer or is the only option vSphere (which is massively out of my price range)?
Looking forward to your responses and hoping that I have just missed something obvious!
EDIT: I see, I had misconstrued the evaluation warning as being for the vSphere software when it was actually for the ESXi bit. Thank you very much for making me a much happier IT chappie! Thanks again for all the input
