    Hi folks,

    VMWare server
    Ubunt 7.04 server amd64 (Host OS)
    CentOS-5_lamp.x86_64 (Guest OS)
    TWM - Desktop
    Firefox - browser

    This is my first time building a Virtual Machine. I found that I can run the Guest OS on vmware-server-console without starting vmware-server. Then what will be the use of the latter? TIA

    VMware Server is running in the background when you're using the VMware Server console.

    $ ps -A | grep vmware
     4733 ?        00:00:00 vmware-serverd
     4768 ?        00:00:00 httpd.vmware
     4779 ?        00:00:00 httpd.vmware
     4791 ?        00:00:00 httpd.vmware
    Do they indicate that VMWare server is running. Is there a more accurate way? TIA

    Yes, that's right.
