Community, I am new to the site as well as servers. I currently work in my company's help desk and want to know more about servers so i can move up. i currently have a dell poweredge 840 i purchased refurbished however it would appear i am having the dreaded no network adapters found error. dell does not have the specific .iso for this machine on their website that i can find either because of the age of the server or the lack of asset tag. the asset tag of the machine was removed by geeks.com for privacy reasons i imagine since the tag no longer appears on the bios. my question is, does anyone know how get a dell esxi or have a copy of the esxi 5.0 or 5.1 esxi image for 840 so i can run vsphere on my server? also if it is not possible can someone recommend an alternative to my need to have a virtual lab at home? i have legit copy of 2008 r2 server from the school i attended last semester so that is not a real issue. my goal is to create at least two servers and multiple pc's both win7 and xp, since we use both at work and practice dhcp, gpo policies and creating print severs. since i am working my way through my CCNA i have three routers and three switches i plan to implement later on. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
