I'm running VMware Server 2 and have created Virtual Machine Shortcuts for our various VMs. How do I save the VM login/password so I don't need to enter it each time I launch the shortcut?
You can add "-u username" and "-p password" to the command-line shortcut to pass a username and password to the program.
Be sure not to use to -M option to reference the VM ID as this breaks the username/password feature. Use the datastore path to the VMX instead

Right click on the Shortcut and select properties. change the properties so that it looks like below:
"D:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\VMware Remote Console Plug-in\vmware-vmrc.exe" -h vmhost:8333 -u -p "[Vmware-01] VS2005-XP/VS2005-XP.vmx"
