For your requirements the NAT mode should work for you, just as a reminder. NAT Mode : Your host computer (the Mac) will act as a gateway to the network for your virtual machines, nobody on your network (apart from the Mac) will be able to see them since they're sitting in a separate network Bridged Mode : Your host computer (the Mac) will share its ...

Check out VirtualBox. It even has seamless mode where you can run your program in a 'native' window on the desktop.

This works in SLES: ps ax|grep vmware 8885 ? Ss 8:05 /usr/lib/vmware-tools/sbin64/vmware-guestd --background /var/run/vmware-guestd.pid /etc/init.d/vmware-tools status vmware-guestd is running You can also check if the vm kernel modules are running lsmod ... vmw_pvscsi 22359 0 vmxnet3 44475 0 vmwgfx ...

Yo dawg. Yes, you can, although it's a lot slower.

This is step by step for a Mac: Quit VMWare Fusion Locate the VM file and right-click (or ctrl-click), select "Show Package Contents" Move all the files and folders ending in .lck to the desktop Restart VMWare Fusion Restart the VM (6. If all goes well you can delete the .lck files and folders)

Try setting your network to bridged, so it picks up a network address from your lan, and you will be able to gain access to it.

VMWare's products seem to be all over the place with respect to capturing on the host. As davey says, on Linux you capture on the host without any trouble. Server on Windows lets you list interfaces but not capture from them. Fusion doesn't provide a BPF device so you can't capture using tcpdump or Wireshark. They do provide their own capture utility, ...

In your VM's settings, under the "network" part, change it from "Share the Mac's network connection (NAT)" to "Connect directly to the physical network (Bridged)". This should allow it to pick up a proper IP from the network like any true physical computer.

Kbyrd's answer is correct, but here are the actual commands: After you click Install VMware Tools (note that the first step may be optional, depending on what you've got installed and the version of VMware that you are using): jed@host:~$ sudo apt-get install build-essential jed@host:~$ mount /cdrom jed@host:~$ cp /cdrom/VMware* /tmp jed@host:~$ umount ...

Sure. VMware Converter should be able to do that conversion for you easily.

I'm writing this from a Macbook pro running windows 7 Beta x64 (will be upgrading to RC later today) and it runs fine. The only problems I've had is with some of the drivers, this is because i'm running a late 2007 MBP that officially doesn't support x64, but it works fine. I had to get hold of the 64bit apple drivers, as there not on my Leopard CD, but ...

I've seen it relatively often that a "stale NFS file handle" really indicates that a file system is corrupted or unclean - try running fsck on it.

You could try VirtualBox. It supports MacOS and has good reviews.

ESXi is free for use and has a stand alone vSphere (GUI) for remote access which gives you control over the ESXi server, the VM's and console access to the machine. Downside is no USB support if you need it. Windows Hyper-V server is also free (not to be confused with Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V), but I haven't used it (yet), but have heard good ...

lilott8's answer is correct, here are a few more details: You want the instructions for the "Tar Installer": http://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/ws_newguest_tools_linux.html#wp1127177 If there's nothing at /media/cdrom0, check to see where the CDROM is mounted by entering into the terminal: mount This will show a list of all mounted filesystems. If the ...

Settings in /proc/sys are virtual files. To change them, you need to write to them like you would any other file, like so: echo 1 >/proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory The command you tried is to run /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory as an executable, which of course is impossible. The "Permission denied" you're getting is because that file is not set as ...

We setup a similar solution for our developers who needed specific high-end server configurations to test against. The best and cheapest solution for us was to have a pool of Dell PowerEdge 2900 servers (a cheap 8 core alternative that supports a good amount of memory and storage) running Windows 2008 with Hyper-V and then using System Center Virtual ...

Yes the versions are compatible. Make sure you have the latest VMware Player and know that not all the features of your Fusion machine will not work. Other than that, I do it all the time.

For Debian/Ubuntu systems I generally prefer to use the open vm tools packages within the repository. It is easier and they work fine. Install by sudo apt-get install open-vm-source open-vm-tools. Then build the kernel modules by running these two commands. sudo module-assistant prepare open-vm sudo module-assistant auto-install open-vm

virtualbox works on OS X (intel). It also supports "seamless" windows, i.e. opening an windows app on your Mac desktop.

Hm, you can boot there from a LiveCD and make a disk image, then tranfer it to your host computer, and write the image where you need :) I believe there will be some booting problems, so don't forget to configure your loader.

You should check out Linux from Scratch in VMWare it's written for VMWare Workstation but it will work almost the same for Fusion. Its a complete guide to setting up a LFS Build environment in VMWare

Yes - but it's a bad idea. Also this question has been asked A LOT on this site before, when you typed your question into the dialogue box a lot of previous questions were listed in the, usually vain, attempt to get people to look at these before duplication the question again - can I ask that you look at these next time please.

Check that the vmware-guestd is running ps -ef | grep vmware-guestd

Turns out that the Easy Install feature of VMWare Fusion with CentOS is not so easy. By default, the installer creates two logical volumes: one under / and one under /home. It then allocates almost all disk space to the /home logical volume. In my case, I had 3.8 GB allocated under / and 13 GB allocated under /home. This becomes a problem with large rpms ...

You want bridged. Bridged will give it an IP from your network. So it will give you are 192.168.1.whatever number.

VMware tools might do this for you, but Gentoo is not in the guest compatibility list so it may not work, or may take a lot of effort to get working. You could use ntp to keep the clock up to date, or schedule ntpdate to run. I am not sure if these are better methods than hwclock -s. One thing you may want to avoid is a method that simply changes the ...

What's odd is not that the files are taking up space on the root FS, but that you believe that they're going to a disc mounted from the vmware host. Nothing you've so far shown makes me think that any such volume is mounted on /mnt/hgfs/Aspera. Could you say why you think it is? Edit: fair enough. I'm no vmware expert, but this link suggests to me that ...

No, it is not. These are the open source tools used in VMWare Fusion, for which VMWare is required to distribute the source code in accordance with the tool's license agreement.
