Guest Operating System: The operating system that is running inside the virtual machine. . The virtual machines use a set of virtual devices that might or might not map to the physical hardware of the host computer. Host Computer: The physical computer onto which an operating system and the Virtual Server application have been installed. Virtual Server is a technology that allows a single computer to act as a host for one or more virtual machines. The host key can be changed once the Virtual Server is set up by going to Administrative Controls and clicking on Remote Control. but it can be acquired from your MSDN® subscription. press HOST+DELETE. “HOST+DELETE” means RIGHTALT+DELETE. The following definitions will help you with the remainder of this document: • Virtual Server: Virtual Server is a server application that enables users to run a broad range of operating systems simultaneously on a single physical server.
