Steps To Create a 2-Site SRM Demo Environment on a Laptop

You may have seen my video on running VMware ESX inside Workstation on your desktop PC. I was very impressed and excited when VMware published a how-to document on thier VIOPS site that instructs you on how to run an entire VMware ESX Site Recovery demo environment on a single laptop.
Doing this this takes even more VM guests than I had anticipated. In fact, 6 VM guests are required on the laptop - 2 ESX hosts, 2 vCenter Servers, 2 LeftHand networks VSA (virtual storage appliances), and 1 nested guest VM inside one of the ESX hosts. Wow - that is a lot to be running on a single laptop but it is possible.

And, if you aren't familiar with SRM, you can learn about it in the Video:
