In this video, I give an overview of VMWare ESXi and the VSphere client. Initially the interface for VSphere is explained, and an understanding of some of the features available is given. I then walk through installing a new operating system onto ESXi using a mounted .iso file. It’s important to ensure you know what operating system you are installing even down to 32 or 64 bit. Using ESXi allows you to capitalize on minimal hardware while maintaining a lab environment for self education as opposed to managing multiple physical server instances.
