A number of folks I know use VMWare ESX to host a console machine. They do, usually, only use that as one of two systems set up to be used as a console. They run a dedicated PC for the primary console.

I run LAN Console on virtual machines in my office all the time.

The trick is to have VMWare virtual machine set up to have a dedicated IP address rather than a NAT/PAT address.

Does anyone know any reason my PC LAN consoles for my V5R2 and V5R4 systems could not be on VMware systems? (As long as the IP address is on the same subnet as the AS400 itself).

I am uncomfortable with the concept of having to rebuild the physical PC should I have a problem and having a VMware image would be nice.
