To get information about IPMI (and change it's settings) from a physically installed OS, you could use ipmitool(1) and numerous software like it. Mostly it requires root privileges to run. Then you could do something like that: $ sudo ipmitool lan print Set in Progress : Set Complete Auth Type Support : NONE MD2 MD5 PASSWORD OEM Auth Type ...

Check the date and time on your VM and your local machine to make sure that everything is set correctly. If you've manually set the clock on either and they are not in sync, it can cause problems with the authentication.

Even though the question is more than half a year old, since I just had the same problem Don't configure your IP address on the physical member interfaces of the bridge but the bridge interface itself. This is mentioned in the FreeBSD handbooks section on bridging. My understanding is that this is due to the way the packets are processed. if_bridge(4) ...

The X86 answer is make sure your VM doesn't trap RdRand or RdSeed. You trust your VM for many things, this is one of them. A sufficiently recent RNGd on a post Snady Bridge CPU, will (or can be told to) use RdRand or RdSeed, and an untrapped RdRand or RdSeed gets entropy into the VM. /dev/random then works with a real (not a virtual) source of entropy. ...

You have the option of System Center Virtual Machine Manager, which gives you the ability to manage your "fabric", view some basic metrics, provision new virtual machines, etc. We use it in our environment and it fills a gap, but it's not perfect and definitely not cheap. The only OOB way I know of to get the information you're looking for is to use ...

You have many options to do this. I may do the following: Create a new VM, make sure you reserve an IP (at the time of VM creation), and switch off the VM (deallocate or not deallocated). Consider this as your secondary (backup) machine. Once when your primary fails, you can de-link the disks associated there and attach the same here and power on. This will ...

My answer for "Are there any tools out there that would allow me to easily build a network of VMs to simulate/test routing behavior?", is YES. I know several people doing exactly this with NetKit ( http://wiki.netkit.org/index.php/Main_Page ). Please note that NetKit rely on the User-Mode-Linux virtualization technology ( ...

Memory allocation in VMware is a complex topic. It really can't be distilled to a "allocate X amount" per machine. You really have to look at utilization inside the VMs as well as from the host, cluster and and resource pool levels. Can you give a specific situation or scenario that you need help with? What is the layout of your cluster?

OK, so luckily I wasn't in too much of a hurry to log into this machine, so over the past few weeks I've been thinking of other ways to get in. In case anyone else has this problem, here's a compiled list of ways I've thought of or found to regain access to a VM that is not responding: Reset password as per the links in my original question (if lost ...
