Our Setup I run two prosumer virtual machine servers in a cluster configuration. I'm using the proxmox VM kernal for debian linux. In my own home we've been able to virtualize our business, entertainment, and general use computers. Things have been working well for at least 4 yrs. The Good: Proxmox provides a decent interface for KVM and OpenVZ VM ...

If all you need is to look up some files, you can easily mount the .vmdk file in your own Linux, without any need of a VM: losetup /dev/loop0 /path/to/your/file.vmdk losetup -o 32256 /dev/loop1 /dev/loop0 mount /dev/loop1 /your/mount/point The trick lies in the offset, 32256 in this case. This will work for the first partition, but if you do not wish ...

Create a Crashbang Linux VM, boot your VM from is and then mount either the VMDK or the original backup as a secondary volume. See from page 7 of the VMWare userguide on how to mount an image as a separate partition this here.

The example you linked to is a basic outline of how to make a cert request with makecert.exe. I believe your specific question is in relation to the -n switch in the example for designating a name. makecert.exe is expecting an x.500 standard entry so you want to provide it a Distinguished Name (DN). Some folx aren't familiar with Distinguished Names, so ...

You can use the ciopfs filesystem with FUSE to mount a given folder in a second location. When accessed via the second location, the filenames are case insensitive. Here is their example use from their web page: mkdir -p ~/tmp/ciopfs/{.data,case-insensitive} ciopfs ~/tmp/ciopfs/.data ~/tmp/ciopfs/case-insensitive cd ~/tmp/ciopfs mkdir -p ...

This type of behavior can occur if you install a 64 bit OS VM into a host environment that can only support 32 bit architecture VMs. Double check you VM/host environments. You can test this by installing (known good) 32 bit version of the same distro.

Try disabling "Accelerate 3D graphics" option. (Virtual Machine Settings/Hardware/Display/3D Graphics). Disabling this option should disable direct access to GPU, remote desktop emulates a graphics card instead of using real hardware. A bug on graphics drivers (real one) may be the reason for invisible mouse pointer which may not exist on emulated graphics ...

Run ls /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf and you will see some variation of: all default eth0 lo wlan0. You can grep for these same interfaces in dmesg for more information regarding what your kernel/modules see regarding your hardware. If all you see is all, default, eth0 and lo. Then you do not have a wlan0 device loaded regardless of vm or hardware system. By ...

I haven't got VMWare Workstation, but a quick Google suggests it cannot be done. You can share the disk with a guest, but the guest has to be running already, which isn't the case in your scenario. An alternative would be use a different virtualization system such as KVM or VirtualBox as these can access the physical drive directly. Windows doesn't like ...

You can use tools that go by the name "physical to virtual" aka. p2v to convert a physical system to a virtual system. There are a number of tools that can do this. The one that VMware provides is available here: vCenter Converter There are a number of tutorials, such as this one that demonstrate the entire task. If you don't want to use VMware's ...

I believe this kb article will help. It worked for me in IE with what appears to be the same version of Windows. The fix should apply to Firefox as well, as it involves java settings that apply to the "Mozilla Family". Essentially you'll be whitelisting your vCloud instance; the article has more detailed steps.

I'm totally pasting this so its probably wrong-ish but you can find the location of the easy install iso and modify it. VMware has a command C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\mkisofs.exe or /usr/lib/vmware/bin/mkisofs Apparently Linux system versions of the command may not do the right job mount -o loop /apps/vmware/a1/autoinst.iso ...

Try setting VM to use Host-Only connection and then set up Windows to share your current connection (the one you are using now for internet) with connection VMnet1.

Could it be that the virtual machine was open when you backed up? If it was open the backup will be corrupt. When you backup with time machine you need to be careful about having open VM's (or any application for that matter that holds files open). I usually manually use time machine and make sure all application are closed for the day before starting the ...

On your router, also forward port 902 to your VMWare host IP address. When outside of your network this method should work as following: Connected using External IP (go to google and search "what is my IP") > Internal Router ========================================================================= Router Setup = Single Port Forwarding: ESX Host = 443 > ...

I ended up booting up with gparted and extending resizing the partition. Then in the Partition Manager I resized the partition, all worked fine. I tested it first in a cloned VM just to be sure.
