RAC Attack - Oracle Cluster Database at Home/Install VMware Server


  1. These labs have been tested with version 2.0.1 of VMware Server. Go to the VMware Server website at http://www.vmware.com/go/getserver

  2. Register for an account if you don't have one already.

    1. Write down your license number.
    2. If you are at home, then download VMware Server. If you are at a RAC Attack event then the instructor-provided Jumpstart Drive contains a copy of VMware Server, so that you don't need to download it. (However you still need a license number from the VMware website.)
