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.

You can actually NAT guests to a VPN adapter. If the VPN adapter is configured for split-tunneling only traffic inside the secured network will work correctly. The steps I used to do this in VMWare Workstation 10: Shutdown VMW. Enable your VPN connection. Restart VMW. Apparently it only creates its list of network adapters on startup. Change VMNet0 ...

You need to edit your iptables file to allow connections on ports used by smb. Open /etc/sysconfig/iptables and add these lines: # accept connections on smb ports -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 445 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 445 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 137 -j ...

Yes, but only with 'thin disks'. Doing so is called over provisioning and is not recommended in most scenarios.

In recent versions of VMware, it recommends the use of open-vm-tools This is the KB http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2073803 Which basically said that VMware recommends using open-vm-tools redistributed by operating system vendors, this of course based on the compatibility guide.

I think you're headed down the right path. I believe that display technology has actually accelerated faster than the software behind it. I too have had trouble with 4k and Linux. With that said, I have a couple of ideas and comments. Ubuntu 14.04 with Unity does support highDPI settings, if that's an option for you it might be the easiest solution. I ...

Ok I just did a trick and worked perfectlly. 1) Install VMWare Workstation in a VirtualMachine (to avoid installing all the trash of uneeded registry keys, drivers, connections, and services that this huge program install in the SO...) 2) Copy these files from the VMWare Workstation installation in the virtual OS to the host OS: libeay32.dll ssleay32.dll ...

I was looking into an issue with 2008 servers freezing randomly, obtained a dmp file from the vmss files and saw exactly the same output. I drilled down into the dmp file and traced the final memory locations to some sort of system level api indicating that an interrupt concerning the processors had been received but hadn't completed. I confidently stated ...

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

I got the first message ("Binary translation is incompatible...") and couldn't boot (stuck in a "Windows is loading files" reboot loop). I resolved it by enabling "Virtualization Technology". This was under "System Security" in the host computer's BIOS settings.

You probably need to run VMWare workstation as an administrator. Some Windows Updates have created this problem from time to time. Follow the first recommendation in this article: http://www.petri.com/fixing-enough-physical-memory-available-errors-vmware-workstation.htm

Well, i had the same problem. My host is Windows 7, VM is Ubuntu and I'm using Workstation. So i just returned the defaults configuration in the Virtual Network Editor and then everything was ok.

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.

Some of the links referenced in these answers and on other blog posts did not match the same version of vSphere that I had installed. If you want to ensure that you are downloading the same client version as your vmware vsphere ESXi server you can navigate to that servers "VMware ESXi Welcome" page in your browser. You'll need to be inside the same ...

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 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. Symptom: guest system freezed after displaying MS-DOS starting... Had some error displayed by the costumer application for serial communication (missing native com2 port?) but com1 ...

The problem is as Ramhound states - the VM has to update changes to the image when it is closed, suspended, or hibernated and it writes a large volume of data to disk. You can get an SSD which will dramatically speed up the read/write speeds of the system. Either get 1 SSD for the main OS or the VM, get 1 that is large enough to host both, or really any ...

From reading up on cpulimit, it looks like it's designed to handle CPU utilization in a way that may be more effective than VMware can on its own: It does not act on the nice value or other scheduling priority stuff, but on the real cpu usage. Also, it is able to adapt itself to the overall system load, dynamically and quickly. (From this page) I ...

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). On my Z97a Motherboard with Devil's Canyon processor, prior to Workstation 10.0.4, I had to uninstall the Windows Update to get VMware working again. Setting vmmon.disableHostParameters = "TRUE" in the config.ini ...

After 10 hours of searching and testing I solved this Problem. This Problem can Happens for 2 reasons : 1- Bridge Problem.. before installing Windows Server you should check the Network adapter in vmware and I prefer check customize then choose "vm0" if your connection is wired then in advanced setting choose the NIC that the "vm0" will take. 2- Firewall ...

OOOooooh, If I shutdown the virtual machine (not just suspend it), then it allows me to edit the display settings. Well, that answers that. :)

There seems to some bug and reported already: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=395077 As a workaround to the present situation, please copy the text content to a text editor, then again copy it from the text editor to the virtual machine. It should work this way. Hope this helps

Finally I found the reason. It turns out that the firewall of Windows Server 2012 R2 blocks "ping" defaultly. So all I have to do is just enable it and the VMs can ping each other. Just for those who come across the same problem. @user2210761 was right, so I'm going to accept his/her answer though my problem is actually the firewall.

My understanding of your question is different to @Ramhound - Can you confirm you are trying to access the contents of the truecrypt volume, rather then the volume container ? If so, I don't see that as normal behaviour for Linux. I posit that it may be a permission problem, ie the Truecrypt volume may be mounted as 1 user, SAMBA access is via another ...

When using virtual hard drives, regardless of use with or without a virtual machine, you can improve performance by hosting the virtual hard drive file on it's own physical drive to avoid IO being lost, because the host OS is using it. You can also improve performance by using a pre-allocated space, instead of a dynamically expanding virtual hard drive. ...
