We access our ESXi server virtualized with VMware Workstation simply by typing the IP address of this server in the address bar of our web browser.
If a security warning appears, ignore it or refer to the tutorial mentioned earlier to fix this problem.
Then, log in as root.
Create a new virtual machine.
The "Windows 7 x64" virtual machine is created.
For ease, we will use the ESXi server's CD drive to install the guest OS in the virtual machine created on our ESXi server.
To do this, go to the settings of the ESXi virtual machine created in VMware Workstation, and insert the installation DVD of the OS to install (in our case : Windows 7 x64).
PS : don't forget to check the "Connected" box which was normally unchecked at the end of the installation of VMware ESXi.
Start the virtual machine from the VMware ESXi web interface.
And it starts without problems on the installation of Windows 7.
Wait while installing Windows 7.
Windows 7 is installed.
Once on the Windows desktop, don't forget to install the VMware Tools provided by VMware ESXi.
As you can see, Windows 7 runs quite smoothly despite running in a virtual machine created on a virtualization server itself virtualized.
