Publisher Summary The process of determining the size of the physical server that will host the virtual servers is a critical step that should not be neglected. Adequately planning the size of the physical server will provide a solid foundation from which to run virtual servers. Some of the key things that need to be addressed when planning what physical hardware is needed are the number of virtual machines that will be on the host, and, more importantly, what will be running on these virtual machines. The setup of Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 is much like the installation of other Microsoft software. The wizard-based setup can be run from media downloaded from the Microsoft Web site. To begin the installation of Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2, one should simply run the setup.exe file. The software can be obtained from the Microsoft Web site. The Microsoft Virtual Server Administrative Web site is a Web-based application that is used to manage and configure the virtual server as well as the virtual machines running on the virtual server. The Virtual Server Administrative Web site can be installed in two ways. The first way is to install the Virtual Server Administrative Web site as part of the installation of Virtual Server. The second way is to install the Virtual Server Administrative Web site on its own standalone server.
