    hi everyone.

    here is the following scenario.
    imagine you have 5 clients that need to do QA testing of various software versions in various environments.

    you want to build (actually you have the hardware ready) a server that will be a Server to manage easy your VMs.

    minimum requirements:

    1)it should be GUI interface

    2)it will allow the user to clone a VM that will be available by the administrator and make his own VM to test whatever the user wants without fucking up the template VM for others to use aswell

    3)it will have some sort of GUI that a user can do step 2 without having the need to use Windows or other Administrator account to do that "manually" on the VM server environment and risk causing problems





    prefered requirements:

    1)share 1 VM to more than one users at the same time (hardware allows it)

    2)is compatible with VMware vms

    3)is free or available in board4all so that if we like it..we buy it.

    4) doesn't need Active Directory on windows to be installed





    what software/setup do you propose for the above? any personal experience?:rolleyes:

    thanks

    Outside of VMWare products, maybe Proxmox?
