Your question is related to the concept of oversubscription [1] (allocating more virtual/logical resources than are physically available) in virtualization. In general, it is safe to oversubscribe on CPU, but not on memory. Typically hypervisors reserve memory ahead of time, which deprives the host of its use, reserving the RAM for the guest. However, CPU ...

I'd be surprised if drag and drop worked across OS types. It did work for me when both host and guest were Windows. And even in Windows it was somewhat finicky -- for example, I could copy files from Explorer in the host to Explorer in the guest, but not from Explorer in the host to Outlook in the guest. For getting your files into/out of Linux, you might ...

Simply use one of the unused VMnets, like VMnet4 or whatnot. They have no DHCP, bridging or host-only adapter configured by default. All virtual machines connected to a specific VMnet can talk to each other as if they were connected by a switch. If you need your host OS to be able to access this virtual network, you can add a host-only network adapter in ...

You have to use Host-Only adapters and bridge them together with Windows Bridge mechanism. Then switch off built-in VMware DHCP server.

Browser software for sure refers to the client aka your computer. If you run Firefox, and find the corresponding Firefox version in your Wireshark output, you're good. Your second question is the question for the server's Web server software, and you should find that information in the same TCP stream.

When you create a snapshot when the virtual machine is running, it Creates delta disk files (vm-000001.vmdk) and immediately set the VM's storage disks to them in the .vmx config file. This part is instant as these files start out as blanks (no difference between snapshot and current state). Copies the VM's RAM to disk If mainMem.useNamedFile is not ...

According to VMWare's site this is the answer: This issue is resolved in vSphere 5.0 Update 3. To work around this issue, manually create a CPUID mask for the affected virtual machines: To manually create a CPUID mask for the affected virtual machines: Power down the virtual machine. Right-click the virtual machine and click Edit Settings. Click the ...

Apparently you need to install GNOME Desktop. Therefore, if you want a desktop environment in Cent-OS, you need to install the GNOME Desktop. I selected minimal install(big mistake) and the proper one with the Desktop UI environment is GNOME Desktop installation. I hope this will help someone's first time installing Cent-OS :) Also, this can maybe benefit ...

On VMWare Workstation, a USB device gets plugged into the guest, as far as it can tell. If ESXi works the same way (I expect it does, just might be more formal about provisioning it) then a USB sound device ought to work. If it shows up under "Sound, vided and game controllers" that ought to work. ⋯yes, hardware version 7 or higher, noted in a manual for ...

After you click the Install VMWare Tools, do you get a popup that includes "Mount the virtual CD drive in the guest, ..."? I don't believe I've run a guest with your exact OS but if the module isn't found, my thought is that the VMWare Tools weren't compiled and installed. In my experience, you have to mount /dev/cdrom on a directory, extract the ...

I figured a way of achieving this. Write a AutoIt or AutoHotkey script to detect when the class "VMWareUnityHostWndClass" no longer exists.

I haven't found a way to do this in VMWare as of Feb 2015, but it's easy to do with Virtualbox, if that becomes a primary requirement for you.

I've had similar problems with my setup running OS X 10.10.2 and before I upgraded OS X to. What I found was that when I changed display settings in OS X to use the "Default for display" Resolution. I then unticked in VMware the "Automatically adjust user interface size in Windows" and ticked "Use full resolution for Retina display" this does how ever give ...
