My goal is to get a memory dump from a Windows XP guest running inside VMWare Workstation 8.
- When I tried to to use the Right Ctrl+Scroll Lock+Scroll Lock combo there was no reaction on the screen, no file was created
- I read this document and found that I can use vmss2core
- I suspended the vm
Unrecognized .vmss file(magic 0)
Unrecognized .vmem file(magic f000ff53)
Note1: My guest xp is working fine and I can use it like normal. So there are certainly no issues in the guest.
Note2: I am using a USB keyboard (in reference to the first step) Can someone please show me a way through which I can get a memory dump in VMWare Workstation 8
