    Is there a utility that is available to repair corrupt virtual host disc images? My esx server crashed on me and as a result one of my virtual machines won't now start it gives a disc read error message, I don't want to have to rebuild the entire virtual host as it was a test platform I was building to run IBM websphere on windows 2000 and it takes literally hours to do.

    If you do have to start over you might want to make a copy and/or backup of the VM once you have all your apps installed/configured. This way you can revert back to the pristine environment if something happens again.

    I have a 10.6.x physical server that I would like to convert to a vm so I could host the existing services in a a virtual environment that will be running on Apple hardware...

    Is it possible to migrate a "real" Mac server to a vm?

    If so, any links/documentation etc appreciated.

    Here is what I have tried so far:

    Boot existing server in Target Disk Mode attached to the VM Host Server.

    Create a disc image of the physical server (I have 2 disc images, one "Create image", then I duped this, renamed and "Scanned for restore")

    Create a new virtual machine "continue without disc" create custom virtual machine

    I can select my dmg, but I am unable to boot from either dmg (the scanned image or the unscanned image)

    Thanks in advance

    I am using VMware Player to run a virtual machine on my desktop, and have successfully created one from a VHD file that contains a system disk image.

    DB:2.70:Does Vmware Player Plus Support Vhdx Disc Image Files? 3m


    Thanks for all this input which - after further experimentation - has enabled me to solve my problem. I have two files created by Microsoft's disk2vhd utility containing my System disk and my Data disk; the former is a VHD file and the latter a VHDX file because the Data disk is larger than 2TB. I wanted to create a VM from these two files - either on my Windows 7 host or my Windows 8 host. It's not possible on Windows 7 because the OS does not support mounting VHDX files as drives, but the following scheme works on Windows 8:

    a) Use Winimage to convert the System.VHD file to System.VMDK (takes a long time)

    b) Create a VM on the WIndows 8 host, installing the OS later by removing the empty VMDK file and adding System.VMDK as an IDE drive

    c) Mounting the Data.VHDX file as a drive on the Windows 8 host by attaching it.

    d) Creating a new .VMDK file in the VM that is large enough to hold all of Data.VHDX (yes, VMPlayer can create .VMDK files larger than 2TB - even on Windows 7 as it happens)

    e) Sharing the drive created from Data.VHDX file as a shared folder in the VM

    f) Copying its content to the new .VMDK file

    No doubt Ghost would be a better way to copy the file, but this way seems to work for me.

    Thanks for all your help - I think this closes this discussion.

    if you type dmesg you'll get a lost of the HW found on startup, you'd need to give it a partition and format it unless its a real disk and already done.

    To mount a disk partition for example though you can do

    I am trying to move a virtual server from one server running the free VMware server to another server running the free VMware server. The HOST OS of the server I created the virtual server on is running Red Hat Linux 4. The HOST OS of the server I am trying to move the virtual server to is Windows 2003 Enterprise R2 SP2. The GUEST OS of the virtual server is Windows 2003 Enterprise R2 SP2.

    I have no problem moving over the image files themselves (.vmx / .vmdk) but when I try to start the virtual server from the Windows HOST OS I get the error "No bootalbe CD, floppy or hard disk was detected". If I load this same virtual server on the Linux HOST OS it boots just fine.

    Is there a way to move virtual instances between different host operating systems? I am thinking I am having this problem because the host OS I created the virtual server on was running Linux. Now that I am trying to move that same virtual server to a Windows host OS, VMware is not recognizing the OS.

    I did try manually editing the .vmx file but did not have any luck. I also tried using VMware Converter but when I load this virtual instance into Converter it tells me it cannot find the guest OS.

    I wanted to run the TTD 3.1.1 volume structure test on my 12"G4 powerbook (10.4.8, 1.25 Gb SDRAM, 80 GbHD), but noted the suggestion in both the Macfixit and micromat forums (from Micromat techs) that it is better to run the program from a harddisk which allows for virtual memory (rather than a CD from the downloadable disk image). Attempting to follow another suggestion from the MacFixit forums, I installed TTD on both the powerbook and G4 ibook (10.3.9), booted the ibook and linked the powerbook to it in firewire target disk mode.

    I waited until audible drive activity on the target disk had stopped in case some time was required, then ran the 'rescan volumes' option on the TTD menu, and tried to scroll down. In both directions (10.4.8 to 10.3.9 and vice versa) the target drive appeared on the host computer desktop, and subdirectories and files were accessible to the finder, but the target drive was not listed as a volume on the TTD list, so repairs on the target disk were not possible. It was even possible to start TTD from the target disk, but it, too ,only listed the boot disk of the host computer as available for assessment.

    I described this to a Micromat staffer moderating their forums and he explained that TTD is written by them, but supported by Appl,e so I should query Applecare as to why it didn't work.

    A customer of mine has an onsite WS2008 STD providing Terminal services to his employees on the road - the OS is installed on mirrored disks (raid-1).

    I was asked to move the server into a clustered Hyper-V virtual environment. Until then, I was sure that a full system backup, performed by Windows Server Backup, could be restored bootable anywhere at one click. My feeling of security has vanished
    since. So far, any restoration scenarios I tried, have failed ; thus my original question about the RAID drivers.

If the F-11 method does not work, the creation of the HP Recovery Restore disk set may not either, and you would need to ordert these HP Recvoery restore Disk set from HP.

    I know of no way to correct the failed F-11 method short of using the HP Recovery Restore Disk to resotre the system back as it was when shipped. These HP Recovery Restore Disk set recreates the partitons on the hard drive, including the D: Recovery partition.

    Working with version 5.5.3 using images created with version 5.5.1. My understanding of the "Revert to Snapshot" feature is that the current virtual session is deleted from the host hard drive and the image returns to the state when the current snapshot was taken. No additional files are left behind on the host hard drive. Is this not the case?

    For example, the folder containing the snapshots for the current image had 139 *.vmdk, etc files in it. After I was done with the image, I hit the "Revert to Snapshot" button and I noticed that the file count went up to 159, consuming additional space. More significantly for me, what do the new files mean relative to the actual state of the virtual image? This behavior is unlike VMWare 4.5x.

    This is my first go at creating a VMware virtual machine

    We just got a new server in a datacenter

    Its windows 2008 server.(the 64bit version)

    My plan is to run a 2008 server virtual machine ontop of a 2008 server Host

    First i used a converter for P2V - this bit was succesful, so basically i took an image of the host, and converted it to a Virtual Machine.

    I set the image to use 1 core of the dual core CPU, and half of the memory(4gig) and half of the diskspace of the D drive (50GB)

    Then i installed virtual server 2, and imported it

    Then i installed the thing that makes you see the window in IE (some active x thing maybe??)

    Anyway, at the point of booting up the VM server i get the message:

    The easiest way to install a fresh OS on an ESX host is to copy the iso for the OS to the host, create a VM, point the VM CD to that iso and then power up the VM. This will make the VM boot from the installation iso. Trying to get your VM to boot from your PC's CD is very frustrating if not nearly impossible anymore.

    Because VMware Server only supports USB 1.1 devices. Currently the only products which support USB 2.0 are the Workstation 6 beta and the Fusion beta (at least I think Fusion does).

    Hi Sumithpdd,

    Thanks for the forum entry.

    The issue that you experience is most lickly related to the virtual machine.
    have you tried on a new created administrator account.
    Did you connect the device to the PC directly?
    Did you try different usb ports and diffetrent cable.
    Have you tried on a different PC to see if the issue occurs there.
    Drivers will be downloaded automatically.
    If they failed to download, then something is either corrupt or not working.

    If the same issue happens on a different PC, then back up as much as possible and reset the Phone.
    If the same issue happen on a different pc, then contact the Mobile provider to get the device inspected.

    Best Regards,

    Why not? Portability is a feature of virtual machines. You just need to install the virtualization software on the other comptuer and attach the external hard drive with your virtual machine files. You will need to adjust the networking
    card in the Settings for the vm or you won't be able to get on the internet. The first time you do this you will need to double-click on the .vmc file to establish the location of the files for VPC 2007.

    Hi,

    I have created a VMWare 7.0 Image of Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit Edition, I have used the installer disc that came with my MSDN subscription. My host system is running WinXP SP3 on a Dell Laptop that has 64Bit and VT support enabled in BIOS. On the machine I created the image, everything works fine.

    The problem occurs when I copy the Image to a machine of a coworker, who has basically the same hardware, I also made sure that all BIOS settings are correct. What happens is that the Image boots, then I get a progress-bar in text mode that says "Windows Is Loading Files", and after that the virtual machine reboots and the same happens over and over again.

    I have tried pressing F8 during bootup, but I get no bootloader. I have also tried to boot from my source DVD in the virtual machine, which works, but Windows 7 setup says it cannot repair, even the advanced repair options do not work.

    The strange thing is that on my machine where the image is working, I do not get the message "Windows Is Loading Files" at all, it simply boots into a graphical screen instantly showing an animated Microsoft logo. Additionally, on that system I can easily gain access to boot options pressing F8.

    What may be the cause for the endless booting loop of my installation? It really drives me mad since nothing I tried so far seems to work out.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    I am trying to convert a physical XP SP3 machine to a virtual image on an ESXi 4.0 host using the VMware VCenter Converter.

    When the virtual guest is started, the console just shows a black screen.

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks

    DB:2.46:P2v Guest Black Screen sa


    There's a couple of solutions here:

    1) Reconfigure the virtual disk file to be a SCSI disk instead of IDE

    - Remove the virtual disk from the virtual machine (right-click edit settings - hard disk - remove from virtual machine - OK)

    - Connect to service console (ESX) or unsupported mode (ESXi) and open the descriptor disk with a text editor such as vi (i.e. "vi /vmfs/volumes/storage/virtualmachinefolder/virtualdisk.vmdk"

    - Change ide to "buslogic" or "lsilogic" and save the file

    - Add the virtual disk back to the virtual machine (right-click edit settings - add - hard disk - use existing disk - browse to the disk etc)

    - Verify that the scsi controller is set to buslogic or lsilogic (buslogic will probably have the most success)

    - Power on the virtual machine

    2) Use Converter to create the destination disk as SCSI instead of IDE

    - Converter 4x has a new disk controller option that is defaulted to "preserve source"

    - If the original disk is IDE, the virtual disk will be IDE as well

    - Perform the conversion again and go through the Converter Wizard

    - On the 2nd last screen with the various "Edit" options, there should be an Edit button for devices (without looking at the screen)

    - Select the dropdown menu and choose buslogic/lsilogic instead of preserve source

    - Convert the VM and it should boot

    Rule of thumb is that if the virtual machine boots up and it immediately has a black screen with a blinking cursor at the top left, then it's a hardware issue (controller most likely).

    Hope this helps.

    On the My Account page of office.microsoft.com, you have various options to install a click-to-run Office 2013 product. If you select
    Install from a disc I want to burn a disc, you can download a disc image (ISO or IMG?) ready for burning to a disk.

    However, it appears that, using a mounting tool such as Microsoft Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel, you can mount a downloaded disk image as a virtual drive, and install Office 2013 from that drive without physically having to burn the image to a DVD.

    Has anyone ever installed Office 2013 in this way and can comment on how easy or otherwise the installation is? Does anyone have any experience of using the Microsoft Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel? (Windows 8 users don’t need such a tool
    because Windows 8 natively supports ISO files.)

    Has anyone downloaded a disk image of an Office 2013 product recently – particularly in the time interval since Service Pack 1 became available? If so, are you able to comment onwhether the downloaded image contained the latest level of code?
    Or was it at some earlier level – perhaps even only at the RTM level?

    DB:2.45:Has Anyone Ever Installed Office 2013 From A Downloaded Disk Image Mounted As A Virtual Drive a8

    Thank you for your reply.

    I am already familiar with the contents of the article you reference. It doesn’t help with my query.

    Unless I have missed something, a service pack for a click-to-run product cannot be downloaded separately (from the Download Center, for example), nor can it be installed through Windows Update. As far as I am aware, all updates (including service
    packs) are streamed automatically to installed click-to-run products.

    With the release of Service Pack 1, surely an ISO disk image incorporating Service Pack 1 will be made available for future downloads from the My Account page of office.microsoft.com? It would seem illogical to me to keep supplying back level
    code which needs to be updated as soon as it is installed.

    Hi,

    Anyone know of a way to backup the host virtual image ? I can't seem to find any document on it.

    DB:2.44:Support For Sniffing Vm Network Traffic? xd



    I have installed VMWare Fusion 1.1beta on a Leopard host recently and tried to sniff traffic sent from my VM image over the virtual network device from the host (tcpdump on the host side filtering on the IP given to the virtual host). No traffic appears unfortunately. With bridged networking, sniffing on the host ethernet device shows no traffic from the VM, and if NAT is enabled, you can't even open the vmnet device in promiscuous mode.

    Will VMWare Fusion support this functionality? Thanks.

    Use /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/vmnet-sniffer if you need to sniff from the host. I'm not a network guy but believe BPF support is what's needed for tcpdump to work.

    I'm trying try to create a virtual machine of Windows Vista, and I want to Install Windows from a disc image file. But when I navigate to the file, it is greyed out and doesn't let me select it. The file is a universal image file (.uif). Should I convert it to an .iso? How can I get it to mount?

    AutoCAD requires Windows, and I have a copy of Vista, so I figured I'd use it. I have MagicISO, and I used it to make a backup disc of a volume license copy of Vista, so I had a UIF file. Then, I converted the UIF into an ISO so VMware Fusion could mount it and boot from it. So I'm guessing, somewhere in the process of converting it, either to a UIF or ISO, the file got corrupted and BOOTMGR is no longer available? I'm going to try to get that Vista CD and just boot from that.

    Once you've expanded the size of the Virtual Hard Drive this is then no longer a Fusion issue per-se in that the remaining steps are no different then if this was as physical machine and as such one needs to follow the documentation for the product in question.

    Below are links to the relevant documentation and assuming you are using LVM you will need to get up to speed on it in order to make use of the additional space available either by having expand the size of the Virtual Machine's Virtual Hard Disk Drive or adding additional Virtual Hard Disk Drives to the Virtual Machine.

    DB:2.44:Hyper-V For Beginners 3x


    In the past I have had no reason to think about virtual operating systems. I did run W7RC for a time (ultimate version, I think) but the W7 Home susequently purchased did not allow for a virtual OS. The reason, I believe, was that it was designed for accounting
    type apps and not suitable for graphics intensive software. There could also be problems accessing hardware via the host.
    In a few days I will be installing the W8beta as a dual boot with the existing W7. Out of curiosity it seems a good time to create a virtual system using Hyper-V and the W8 beta as host. Ideally I would like to use Acronis system disc image backups as the
    virtual image(s). Can I do this?.
    The object is to see what Hyper-V can do and find the limitations. So far I have loaded Hyper-V to the DP and glanced at some rather incomplete helpfiles. There is also useful information on Technet. I only have 4 Gb of ram so a first step would be to increase
    this to 8.
    Meanwhile, if anyone has any useful hints and tips which might ease the pain of reading the whole of the Microsoft site, I would be obliged.

    DB:2.44:Hyper-V For Beginners 3x

    Relax Darien and have another glass of wine. I have been doing some reading and in particular with regard to limitations. However I have not seen anything specific to say that things have improved with regard to Hyper-V in W8.
    Below is an extract from the Hyper-V Wiki showing the items which would affect me.

    Limitations
    [edit]
    USB passthrough
    Hyper-V does not support virtualized USB ports or COM ports.sup class=reference id=cite_ref-26[27]/supsup class=reference id=cite_ref-27[28]/sup
    However, a workaround to access USB drives in Windows guest VMs involves using the Microsoft Remote Desktop Client to share host drives with guests over a
    Remote Desktop Connection.
    Other techniques exist to allow USB utilisation, an example would be using a network-to-USB device (USB over IP), a Digi AnywhereUSB or free
    USBIP.
    [edit]
    Audio
    Audio hardware is not virtualized by Hyper-V although the above Remote Desktop workaround may be used.
    [edit]
    Optical drives pass-through
    Optical drives virtualized in the guest VM are read-only.sup class=reference id=cite_ref-28[29]/sup Hyper-V does not support the host/root operating system's optical drives to pass-through in
    guest VMs. As a result, burning to discs, audio CDs, video CD/DVD-Video playback are not supported.
    [edit]
    Graphics issues on the host
    When manufacturer-supplied Vista-compatible
    (WDDM) display drivers are installed on the host OS, most servers and PCs will experience a dramatic drop in graphic performance, including 'page flipping'-like effects when viewing high definition content or scrolling in applications and system hangs when
    switching between applications on the host; guest systems performance is unaffected. Users may install XP/2003-compatible (Non-WDDM) display drivers but may have compatibility problems and will be unable to use
    Aero. This occurs regardless of whether a VM actually exists or whether any Hyper-V services are running.sup class=reference id=cite_ref-Poor_Host_System_Performance_after_RC1_Update_.28RTM_as_Well.29_29-0[30]/sup
    Microsoft recommends to use default VGA drivers (shipped with Windows Server 2008) on the host systems instead of manufacturer- supplied ones,sup class=reference id=cite_ref-Video_performance_may_decrease_when_a_Windows_Server_2008-based_computer_has_the_Hyper-V_role_enabled_and_an_accelerated_display_adapter_installed_30-0[31]/sup
    however, such drivers, in turn, do not support multiple displays and high resolution configurations, as well as Aero,
    DirectX,
    Hardware-accelerated video decoding and other graphic accelerated features, thereby limiting its use on workstations (default VGA drivers do not support e.g. resolutions higher than 1280x1024).
    This issue in Windows Server 2008 (not R2) is still not solved. According to a Microsoft specialist's statement, systems with Windows Server 2008 R2 and processors supporting
    Extended Page Table are unaffected;sup class=reference id=cite_ref-GraphicAcceleration_EPT_10-1[11]/sup
    however, at least some users experience an even more significant problem: Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V and manufacturer-supplied graphic drivers installed won't boot at all.sup class=reference id=cite_ref-31[32]/sup
    This issue is fixed in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    The result is that I have cleared the decks for the W8 beta but will not be installing another OS in virtual mode. I want W8 to be as good a direct comparison with W7 as I can get without possible interferences.
    What I have seen in other threads are bland suggestions to install W8 in a virtual mode without any regard as to what the computer would be used for. Seems crazy to me.

    1. Do I need any host OS to start VMWare (player or workstation) to run the Virtual Appliance?

    2. if ESX server can run VM image, can it run independently without VC ?

    DB:2.44:Virtual Appliance Os Independent Confuse zx

    Regarding #1, a virtual appliance is just a virtual machine that someone has already installed an OS and an application on. It's like instant noodles... just add water. In this case, water = (vmplayer, vmware workstation, vmware server, vmware fusion, or vmware ESX server )

    Regarding #2, nope. VC is only required if you want to manage and move VM(s) amoungst a group of ESX servers. Note that you will also need VC to clone a VM easily.

    If you want to try out an "appliance" on your desktop, you can use:\- workstation (usb support)\- vmplayer (usb support)\- vmware server (no usb support)If you want to run the appliance on a dedicated system:\- vmware server\- esx server\- esx server + VC (to vmotion/clone/etc)

    virtual hosts and document root (in this case) are to do with server settings,

    when a browser is directed to a web page it interrogates the DNS (which you set up with your network connection) for the IP address where the web site can be found, there may be more than one domain at that IP#, so for a proper HTTP request there is a Host field in the headers.

    HTTP servers are written to read that header and serve files from an appropriate directory, aka the document root

    DB:2.42:Disk2vhd Efi Vhdx Vm Fails To Boot (Solved) c1


    Edit: I was able to work around this. From what I've read, a bare metal restore from a physical to virtual machine is not supported, but that's what I tried and it worked beautifully. The only thing that went right today.
    So, disk2vhd isn't needed (and as we've seen, didn't work). Instead I took these steps:
    1. Control Panel - File History. After it finishes searching for drives, at the bottom left of the page is a link to System Image Backup. Run it, and select a target drive for the backup. I used a 64Gb key drive. Next, it will
    show you the volumes that will be backed up. It automatically selects (and you cannot deselect) the volumes required for a bare metal restore. Any additional volumes are optional. You'll probably want to deselect the target drive for the
    backup.
    2. After the backup is complete, either move the drive over to the Hyper-V host or access it over the network.
    3. In Hyper-V Manager, create a VHDX virtual disk from the backup drive. Then create a blank VHDX that is at least the size of the original machine's system disk (which may have multiple volumes). In my case, this was a 2Tb disk, to which I added
    an extra 128Gb just to be sure. This isn't the size of the image backup, it's the size of the disk from which the image backup was taken. I made my disks fixed size. I don't know if it would work otherwise.
    4. Create a Gen 2 virtual machine (this was necessary for me since my original machine used EFI boot). On the SCSI host adapter, attach the blank disk that will take the image restore, and attach a second disk containing the image backup (this can
    be deleted later).
    5. Create a second SCSI host adapter and attach a DVD drive to it (also may be deleted later). Not sure if you really need the second adapter but I was just being cautious. Assign the ISO image for your original machine's install disc (Windows
    8.1 Pro Update 1, in my case) to the DVD. Set the DVD to boot.
    6. Run the VM and press a key when prompted to run from the DVD. Select the Repair option, and drill down until you get to a page with the option for a System Image Restore. Click on that and then select the drive containing your backup when
    prompted. It will inform you that drive C: (your blank drive) will be wiped out and resized to match the original system drive that was backed up. Then let it run. In my case it took maybe three or four minutes, but it was a very sparsely
    populated 2Tb drive.
    7. After the restore completes, you should be good to go. After testing the new VM, I deleted the second SCSI disk with the backup image, as well as the DVD and its host adapter.
    =================================================
    I ran disk2vhd on a recently built Windows 8.1 x64 machine. The conversion completed successfully, but I'm having no luck finding the right recipe to booting it in Hyper-V on a Server 2012 R2 machine. I've tried both Gen 1 and Gen 2 (with and
    without Secure Boot enabled). In both cases it apparently fails to find a boot loader. The virtual disk is VHDX.

    I ran disk2vhd twice. Once including the additional volumes Windows creates for EFI, and once without. The result is the same either way.
    Any help much appreciated.

    hi all,

    http://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/ws_disk_defrag.html

    this document suggests that defrag be performed in three steps.

    I can understand step 1 (defrag utility inside the virtual machine) and 3 (defrag utility on the host machine), and I also understand why one must follow the other.

    what puzzles me is step 2 (defragment virtual disks from the virtual machine settings editor): what is this all about?

    step 1 reorganizes files and folders in the guest OS, while step 3 does the same at the host level (and hence at the virtual disk image file level)... isn't this enough?

    I also had no luck with creating an XPMUser account (and similarly a Mark account for a Win98 virtual machine I'm also trying to get working). However, by setting the permissions for the shared folders to basically everything except for Full control
    and Special permissions, I was able to see and map the shared folders as drives on both virtual machines. This required a bit of finagling, though...
    I had already installed the Microsoft Loopback adapter on the host Win7 machine, but under the Control Panel Network and Sharing Center, it (Network 2) was listed as an Unknown network, and I could not change its profile to be a trusted Work or Home
    network. The fix for this was *very* non-intuitive: On the Loopback network adapter TCP/IPv4 properties, set the Default Gateway (which I usually leave blank in my applications) to the IP address of the
    client XP machine! For some reason, this makes it an identifiable network, and now you can click on the network type and change it to Work or Home.
    Once that was done (along with setting the Advanced Sharing and Permissions as above), the shares started working as I would expect, including with my 16-bit applications. So, this solves my original problem, but I'm still not completely satisfied...
    On this machine's predecessor (a WinXP laptop), using Virtual PC 2004 and Virtual Machine Additions, I was able to make my entire data tree (called Data on my machines since the dawn of time) available to the virtual machine as a mapped shared folder,
    without having to share it with the entire network (even if it is a trusted home or work network). The new XP Mode machine has a similar facility, but as we've seen above this doesn't work in all cases (specifically, for 16-bit applications).
    Therefore, I think I need to start using Password protected sharing, so I'm back to getting user accounts to work.
    As mentioned, I did create the XPMUser account, and instead of setting the permissions and sharing for Everyone, I assigned the same settings to the XPMUser account. This caused me not to be able to see the folders at all from the virtual machine.
    (I tried the same experiment from the Win98 virtual machine; this also didn't work.) Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
    Hmmm - I guess a different way to attack the problem would be if share permissions can be granted to specific networks; that way I could share my whole Data tree to the Loopback adapter, and just selected subfolders to the wireless and hard-wired adapters.
    More research and tinkering... Edit: Well, this won't quite work. It's possible to completely turn off file (and printer) sharing for a specific network adapter, but I haven't found a way to selectively share some folders to (via) one adapter,
    and others on another. Back to the user solution.

    Thanks.

    DB:2.41:Vmware Host Name ds


    Thanks Chris, however, it won't really matter if the image get's moved to a different host because the idea is just to take the main host name (2rrvm01) and just add x01, x02, etc.

    For a better explanation my plan is to:

    1- prepare a system with 2k3 syspreped with 4 vm's ( 2 x86, 2 x64 ) syspreped also. the vm's have the setting to turn on automatically once the host starts.

    2- Save this image and restore it on 30 systems ( same hardware type )

    3- When every system boots up the first time it will generate a new SID for the host, then it will start the vm's and also generate a SID for those.

    That's why i would like to assign names of vm's base on their host.

    That way i can have 30 physical systems with 4 vm's each which potentially will give aprox. 120 systems.

    By the way, if I start a VM from vmware-cmd command line and if it is the first time it will pop a window to generate and Id, is there a way in the script i can respond the create, that way everything will run automatically.

    Hardware: Mac Mini Server mid-2010

    Host OS: Mac OS X Server 10.6.4

    VMWare Fusion 3.1.1

    Guest: Mac OS X Server install image

    I'm running into a brick wall trying to install Mac OS X Server as a guest OS in a Mac OS X Server host, which I understand is supposed to be possible and allowed. ie: I'm not trying to get around anything here except stuff just not working right.

    Freshly installed Mac OX X Server machine, Freshly installed VMWare Fusion. This machine is destined for a colo centre soon. While I don't need a virtual OSX server immediately, I need to know now if I can install it from an image later, so trying to do it now for a test. It has to be from an image for two reasons: 1: When I want to do it for real, the machine will be in its colo centre and physically inaccessible; 2: In any case the machine doesn't have an optical drive so that method is out of the question anyway.

    First problem was making an install image that booted at all and didn't just stop at the symbol. I finally did this by using Disk Utility on another Mac to make a new .cdr image based on the optical device the install disk was in, rather than the "Mac OS X Server Install Disc" volume. It now boots in vmware to the OSX installer Choose a Language screen, I choose it, then it gives me:

    Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer.

    If you want to restore your system from a Time Machine backup, click "Restore from Backup". And the buttons "Restore from Backup" and "Restart".

    What doesn't it like? Why won't it install?

    I have one guess: The install DVD is the grey install disc that came with the Mac Mini. Could it be that this disk can only be run against real Mac Mini Server hardware, and not the virtual hardware presented by VMWare?

    Is there a workaround for this? Or do I need to wait for an update from VMWare that post-dates this hardware? Or is there no hope of a solution?

In my Mac OS X Server VM, the processor name (one way I usually idenitfiy whether it's 64-bit-capable) is missing, but the System Software Overview says that 64-bit Kernel and Extensions are enabled, and almost all of the processes in Activity Monitor are running in 64-bit mode.

    If you want to move it from one vm machine on a host

    to a vm machine on another host, just copy the files.

    Only thing that is a problem there is if you are

    using bridged networking obviously if you both ran

    the machine you'd have dup names etc on the network.

    If its NAT'd or host only, this is not an issue.

    If its a windows box on bridged, run sysprep on the

    new copy (while the other isnt up), if its linux,

    just change the name.
