Like many who work in IT I find it useful to have a Lab environment to test installations, configurations and new ideas. My intention is to document some of the more challenging aspects of setting up a Lab.

My Lab is running on VMWare Workstation 14.## but most of the things I will be discussing should be applicable to other products such as Virtual Box or Hyper-V as well.

I am running Windows 10 on the host with the following hardware:

Intel i7 @ 4.5GHz

32 Gigabytes RAM

6 Terabytes hard drive space

Geforce 1070 graphics card.
