Yes, you can use RDT but if the computer is not on the network and you want better control, I would use "TeamViewer" search it in google and check it out.

You can not use the same virtual file to boot in both Exsi server and virtual box since this might corrupt the files and wont work as you expected.But you can create virtual machines using ovf and ova formats and both will react as different instance where the changes won't be committed/synced in between the virtual machines.

The problem is, you have to uninstall any "guest additions" in the VMPlayer (or Virtual PC) virtual disk before you try to use it with Virtual Box, or Virtual Box will have various problems. The same thing applies to using one of the programs out there to convert from one format to another. This makes sharing the same Virtual Machine between different ...

You can load a VMDK directly into virtualbox. Create a new VM, use tell it to existing an existing, and tell virtualbox to the VMDK from the vmplayer VM. I'd suggest using a copy of the VMDK in case you have trouble booting due to dissimilar hardware, but it probably shouldn't be an issue. You may also need to re-activate, depending on your licence.

I ran into crippling slowness on a Mid-2011 iMac in Fusion 7 after upgrading to Yosemite. It wasn't Fusion, but all hypervisors were hit by a bug found across the Mid-2011 lineup. If that sounds like your Mac, you can fix it by restarting after running: sudo nvram boot-args=debug=0x10 I'm not sure why it works, but it does. Here's a Parallels KB on it. ...

Try uninstalling the SVGA driver. It's not working for Yosemite (yet).

I am assuming that you are using IP addresses to ping with, and not the hostname (if the latter then you have a hostname resolution issue). For the former, it is most likely a firewall issue. When Windows firewall is on (as the default settings) in Windows XP computer, it will not respond to ping requests, so obviously you can’t ping to the particular ...

We found an answer. After all the hours of digging, it is almost embarrassing. The solution? When prompted for an activation key, use a DIFFERENT Dell OEM activation key. That is it. Dig around on some old PC, find the key, use it. Worked for us for two or three migrations of this kind. Once virtualized, we have moved the vm around, ESX to workstation ...

Yes, technically this is possible, using raw mappings. You would basically install Linux normally, as a second OS, so you will be able to dual boot. Then in Workstation, for example, you would use the existing OS install as the drive for the VM. Have a look at this article on the VMware website: Configuring a Dual-Boot Computer for Use with a Virtual ...

for those wanting to convert the drive instead of using a transparent virtual disk, or link... (took me around 20 minutes to convert a 32GB USB drive to vmdk) VBoxManage convertfromraw \\.\PhysicalDrive2 D:\VirtualMachines.vmdk --format vmdk *\.\PhysicalDrive = number of your USB drive found in Disk Management *D:\VirtualMachines = this is the path I ...

Even though this is not exactly a clean solution, it seems like I found a workaround for this problem. Running the command vnetlib -- install vmx86 in the Workstation directory reinstalls the deleted service and the vm can be powered on again (even without rebooting the host - but that's why I consider it only a quick'n'dirty solution and not a permanent ...

No. Vmware are fools who have mostly dropped SNMP support in their products. Seemingly without any regard for their customers either, because this is one of the most common questions we get "why does x graphing not work on VMware?"

I think this solution should work for your XP too, as I used for my ubuntu VM. 1.Search for an iso image with name ubuntu.iso in your host system. 2.Open your VM's setting and add a CD drive browsing to the path where the iso image is present. 3.Then start your VM , you will find the the VM tools is mounted. Just then follow the steps for VM tools ...

Open two separate VMware Workstation applications, put one on the first monitor and the second on the other monitor.

If I run simulations on VM and do other works on host machine, does this effect the performance of VM? Since the VM is sharing the hosts' resources to exist, then the more host resources you assign to other tasks the less that will be available to the VM. Less resources = less performance. Is it better to run simulations on host machine or ...

Try this: techhead.co/vmware-workstation-cannot-open-one-of-the-virtual-disks-needed-by-this-vm-because-it-is-larger-that-the-maximum-size-supported-by-the-host-file-system/ "The most common cause is that, as the error message outlines, the underlying file system on which the VM is being run from doesn’t support larger files than 2GB. Your VMs VMDK disk ...

Removing Kaspersky Internet Security really works (Windows 8.1 + Kaspersky IS 15). Uninstall your anti-virus software (in case of Kaspersky IS you can keep your license data), reboot, install VMWare Workstation - Profit! :) After that you can finely install Kaspersky IS.

Click on 'Folder Sharing' and tick 'Always enabled'. Click on 'Add' button and select a folder you want to share. Confirm virtual machine settings. From 'System preferences' on Mac OS X, select ...

The error Network error: Software caused connection abort from PuTTY is the result if there is an IP address conflict (two or more computers have the same IP address) on the network.

I've had the same issue and the culprit was Panda Free Antivirus. I've seen that both Avast! and Avira had issues with VMware Player installation so I've disabled all Panda features and stopped all its services and then was able to install VMware Player smoothly.

Click on Manage for the VM and then select to cleanup disks. The VMWware will not free disk space right away which is why there is a 25 gig difference.
