Home Setup Changes

I have tried both Hyper-V and ESXi over the past few months. Recently, I have returned “home” to Proxmox. I’ve used it for years, and it still is the easiest for me to configure and use.


Why I Moved from Hyper-V to ESXi at home

I wrote back in September that I was excited to setup my new Hyper-V host at home. While it performed well, I was never able to completely consolidate my setup into one machine because of the lack of true disk passthrough in Hyper-V. Last weekend, I moved over to ESXi to try to accomplish this.


Home Hyper-V Server

I’ve been running an old Dell T105 for a client on my home network for years. It was running Windows 7 Professional to host their Peachtree database. When the computer died this last week, it was time for some new hardware.
