I installed VMWare Server 2 in a Centos 5.2 virtual machine which runs in a VMWare ESXi Server. When I try to start, via browser, a VM I created in VMWare Server, it gives me the following message: "You may not power on a virtual machine in a virtual machine.". Is there a way to put the VM to work?
- Starting a land-war in Asia
- Inventing the hoola-hoop
- Trying to VM inside a VM
All bad ideas
You may want to see this. It may not work with VMware Server, but if it works with ESX/ESXi, it probably will.
Why not use VMware Converter (free standalone) to convert the VM to ESX format and save yourself some machine power by not doing VM-inside-VM?
VMware Workstation now supports this feature, you can run ESXi via Workstation.
