    Default Home Lab for 70-290

    For those of you that have taken this exam, what did you need for a home lab?

    I'm using VMware and am wondering how many Server's and workstation's I'll need to setup.

    Thanks

    hi,

    I just used 2003 installed directly on a pc ( no VM ) and used terminal services session for most of the client work.

    Worked for me.

    Good Luck

    Well, at the very least 1 client and 1 server, but 2 or 3 servers with 2 clients is much better. If you have enough diskspace you can easily create more and simply not have them all running simultaneously.

    2 DC's, 1 Member Server(which often was a terminal server) and three clients(2 PC's 1 thin-client)

    You don't really need that much but I just like to play around with this stuff until my head is going to overload with information

    Currently I have one server and one XP client. When I get deeper into 70-290/291 I'll probably knock together another server and client.
