Default Open Source Virtual Server

I would like to install an open source server OS on a single machine then install Samba and IPCOP. Has anybody successfully done this?

IPCop is a full OS, so you cannot install it on top of another OS.

Default IPCOP on Virtual Server

Correct. But you can install IPCOP on a virtual server. I'm curious if anyone has used an open source virtual server and installed IPCOP and Samba.

You can install VMware Server or VirtualBox and then install IPCop as a virtual machine.

Default Virtual Server running Samba and IPCOP

I've looked into VMWARE. The hardware for the ESXi version is too much for what I need so I was looking for an Open Source solution that could be used on single CPU boxes with 2gb RAM.

I'm trying to stick to one box to do two tasks.

I'll take a look at Virtualbox as a solution.

Any other ideas?

Check out VMware Server (not ESXi): http://www.vmware.com/products/server/

Default VMWare Server

I guess I should have been more clear...I wanted to have an open source solution like VMWare ESXi....ESXi will install as the OS but takes more system hardware than I have access to. So...I've settled on installing Mandriva then Install VMWare Server (which is what was first suggested) Then I will install Samba and IPCOP.

We'll see how this works.

Default VMWare and IPCOP

Cummings55,

I have a barebone's server running only ESXI.. overhead for esxi is minimal, 32mg?

I have about 9 VMS coded, 3 running 100% (Mail Server, WebServer, and a desktop UBuntu9). I have all different OS's that I periodically play with.

I want to have MODEM go right into the server, and drop my Router and use the IPCOP inside a VM to manage the network also.. where you successful?
