The short answer is yes. The longer is answer is more complicated... Yes, you can make a virtual machine with Server 2008 R2 (or any Windows Server) and make it add Active Directory. You can also add more virtual machines to it and join them to the domain. You can add the host machine (the physical machine) to the domain. However, this can cause some ...

I changed the disk from dynamic to fixed disk, then created with fdisk the new drive. Then i rebooted, 'del' for bios, changed to boot from CD/DVD (.iso). Then formated C: and it worked.

The answer, at least in my particular case is that I made the VM with VMWare (I'd forgotten that fact) but I've used it with virtualbox for months. It seems to me that VBox can't convert a vmdk made by vmware to a vdi properly. The output of file on the cloned vdi was : clone.vdi: VMware4 disk image which is what made me remember that I made it that way. ...

Run VM in VM is call nested virtualization which not all hypervisors support it. AFAIK only VMware and KVM (limited to Linux guest) can do it. Users request VirtualBox to support it from time to time, but look like it is not on the priority of the developer right now. https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/4032

Looking for the VMX/SVM CPU flags within the VM doesn't tell you whether it's using hardware acceleration to run on the host, it tells you whether it can provide hardware acceleration for other VMs running within it. The fact that you don't see those flags in the VM just means that you can't use it as a host for more hardware-accelerated VMs. This is ...

I know this thread is a year old, but it is a top search result on google for the issue of sharing one VM between two locations. VirtualBox allows you to remotely connect to a running VM using RDP. If you don't want the VM running continuously, rig some way to launch it remotely. There is an option for "Allow Multiple Connections", so you wouldn't even ...

You appear to have configured the host and the guest to have the same IP address.  You should change your guest's address to something like 192.168.131.101.

On Fusion, I was also able to disable the touchscreen by opening the .vmx file of the vm and changed the touchscreen.vusb.present like this: touchscreen.vusb.present = "FALSE" After a reboot of the VM, the "HID-compliant touch screen" device was gone. Credit to this page.

So I tried doing a fresh install without drive encryption and it appears to be working just fine.

All that was needed was to give each network adapter its own unique netmask as it seems that when one tries to ping it tries the first adapter and if that fails does not try the other adapters since they are on the same subnet. -Credit to my friend for pointing it out

If you can't cretae external switch on Hyper-V. First you need to create a new internal virtual switch.In order to do that, kindly follow the below steps. Open the Hyper-V Manager and select your server. In your Hyper-V Manager window, Top of the screen to the left side the second option is "ACTION". Click on ACTION. In the ACTION tab now ...

while configuring internal network in VirtualBox you have to make sure the below things are properly configured. Network name has to be same as the other machine.It must have same network name(setting--> network -->network name) In network adaptor settings - default gateway has to be same for both the machines.(you can verify it from ipconfig) Turn ...

My suggestion is to go with version 1.0 or 2.0 since OVF Tool 2.0 supports OVF version 1.0 and 1.1, and is backward compatible with OVF 0.9.

I haven't tried this with Parallels, but I've cloned a VMWare Windows VM before. Before the clone, the VM was licensed. After the clone, the new machine worked, but was not licensed. When you clone a machine, some of the VM's hardware IDs change. Mainly, the MAC address of the network adaptor is changed. This is a necessary change, otherwise network errors ...

Snapshots are stored in a different file from the disk images. For example: If virtual_machine.vmdk was the 1st virtual disk and is stored on the datastore 1, then virtual_machine-000001.vmdk will be the delta file and stored on datastore 1. If you have the delta file, you should choose to Go To or Revert to it as explained by VMware.

I finally found the solution, on the third page of Google. :/ There was a great power point at http://www.slideshare.net/powerhan96/networking-between-host-and-guest-v-ms-in-virtual-box which explained everything that needed to be done. In addition, on the Virtual Manager, I had to make it fullscreen, File->Preferences->Network->Host Only Networks->Add. I ...

No, it will not wear down one part of the SSD. VMs might write to one specific file, but the contents of that file will not be on the same flash cells. The controller on the SSD will take care of that. Note that this is different from pen drives with flash. For those it would matter. But SSDs come with rather smart controllers which do a lot of things, ...

From my experience, Yosemite is using a lot more RAM than 3GB if you run it natively (no emulation). I imagine in virtualised mode it would take even more. I have 16GB installed on my system and Yosemite is using about 4-5 GB without any application running. Once I open other applications and run one or two virtual machines the available RAM can go down ...

I've found my problem. Notifications were not missing but rather: Notifications appeared on both machines simultaneously Due to identical placement of my task bar and system tray, notifications appear in the exact same screen location for both machines. "Local" notifications on my laptop appear in front of those on the remote client. So, the local ...

I succeeded to convert acronis image of DOS HMI to vmware but had to remove selection of "accelerate 3D graphics" in "Display" of "Virtual Machine Setting" when trying to run it.

@grawity is correct - this does not create a channel that someone can get back into your system. The purpose of that warning is to prevent a Man In the Middle Attack, ie another computer pretending to be the server to you and you to the server. If you have not connected to the server before, its probably OK to connect (not guaranteed, and across some ...

Will saying yes allow this server to connect back to my computer and cause me harm? Generally, no. Why would it? Much like visiting any random website, there is nothing that implicitly opens some kind of backdoor for it to visit back. (Of course, there's a possibility that the ssh client could have a bug that makes this possible, and such bugs are ...

I think that is a problem with hyper-visors and bridging a wireless NIC, i have tried and never succeeded even on VMWare or VirtualBox. So no bridge on a wireless NIC on a Virtual Machine. The solution is to create a loop-back interface on Windows and bridge that one with the VM, and then share the wireless connection with other interfaces on PC.

As described in this VMware Blog, Windows 8.1 Update KB2995388 introduced this error in VMware Workstation 10 (and 11 beta and VMware Player 6).

For Windows XP: As an administrator, run the following command in the command prompt: secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose This will reset most GP settings, including all security settings, to their pre-domain-joined state.

Nope, the polices did their job and changed the settings that applied to that policy. Those settings will stick until changed back (either by another policy, or manually). Perhaps the easiest away to ensure all possible settings that could be set by GP are back to defaults, is to reinstall the OS. Otherwise, to start in on your specific problem, you need ...

I suppose you mean read/write when you say up/down. Your write speed should be similar and not half of your read speed with a HDD, so you have a problem there. If you're using a flash drive (memory stick) the speed difference is normal, but performance on small read and write is very bad (except on some expensive flash drives that are using SSD controllers) ...
