Hyper-V Program Manager
A while ago now I posted about configuring the network drivers for Novell Netware. Now I would like to go through installing different versions of Novell Netware - starting with the latest edition: Novell Netware 6.5.
You can download an eval version of Novell Netware 6.5 from here: http://www.novell.com/products/netware/eval.html.
It even has an evaluation license file on it that allows you to run for 90-days with up to three clients (which is plenty for those of us who are just interested for personal curiosity). Once you have the install media you should create a new virtual machine with at least 512mb RAM and an IDE virtual hard disk (you can use SCSI under Virtual Server but with a NetWare guest it will perform worse than IDE). The install is fairly straight forward but there are a couple of issues to be aware of:
And here you can see it running under Virtual Server:
Just to reiterate though - the performance is *bad*! It is really only useful for curiosity and personal education. Please do not think that you can use this for a production server environment.
Ya right who says that you can't install novell netware server am around 18 years old. And I know more about computer then you man. The server is up and running and it works find.
