Hi,

I have VMware setup on 192.168.1.x (gateway 192.168.1.x) but I want to use a secondary subnet for a VM on the server that will have an IP of 192.168.0.x. Now on my sonicwall I have setup an ARP for the gateway for 192.168.0.x and setup a route and everything seems to work.

So the VMware server works fine on 192.168.1.x and the vm connects to 192.168.0.x BUT the vm will not make an internet connection, I can make a network connection from my workstation from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.0.x so the sub lan seems to be working.

I can make an internet connection from the VMWare server and ping google and the DNS are setup correctly and if I connect a laptop to the nextwork 192.168.1.x it gets an internet connection.

What have I missed that won't allow this vm to go on the next?

(This VMWare server has only one nic)

Hi there.

I got esxi running but not really satisfied with performance and the hassle of controlling VM's from a remote computer.

So I decided to re-visit using KVM (can be considered Linux's equivalent to HYPER-V). KVM is free of course (it's part of most Linux distros - but RHEL (and Centos naturally) has this down to a fine art so install documentation is really good.

It turned out surprisingly easy from a CENTOS 7 HOST and I/O performance is STREETS ahead of both VMWARE workstation and the VM running under Esxi.

The other nice thing is that you can also control the VM's on the LOCAL HOST. PCI passthru works fine and you can use "paravirtualisation" if you want to install specific hardware drivers on the VM to extract even better performance.

VMware esxi VM's can be converted easily enough - or re-installing the Guest OS is a doddle anyway.

(Note - you have to enable VT-X in the BIOS on intel CPU's --usually all done by default these days -- for AMD there's an equivalent but don't know what it is).

Very happy with this solution -- you can install a minimal Linux system and control everything via a CLI if you don't want a Linux GUI. I'd recommend doing it from the GUI for beginners.

For those playing around with Linux Hosts who want to try other ways of running Windows Guests I'd recommend having a look at KVM -- it really is surprisingly easy -- AND STABLE !!!. Also being able to control the VM's from a local host is a great advantage for ... Read more

Hi there
Having got the vm to work on a W7 Host machine I thought of trying it out on Esxi -- I have a few VM's running on vmware's Esxi which I run on a fairly modest "White Box".

Direct install of the vm using vSphere fails but using the stand alone vmware converter to convert the vm I got running under vmware workstation W8 works fine.

Hi there.

I LIKE the idea of a bare metal Hypervisor - I've tried Esxi (VMware) in the past and although it works it's a bit fiddly on what hardware it works on and there's no CLI for managing VM's --you have to do this with a separate machine using vCenter which USED TO BE FREE -- and now this part is NOT available in the free offering any more (if you upgrade to the latest version of ESXI (5.5) you won't be able to manage / modify VM's any more - at least in the FREE offering -- you have to BUY the latest vCenter -- so I've now junked Esxi.

It seems from Internet discussions that Free ESXI might be being phased out anyway so a good time to jump ship to Ms.

Does 2012 HYPER-V SERVER R2 (it's FREE BTW) work decently as a hypervisor -- I'm only really interested in running Windows VM's.

I actually quite like W2012 SERVER but I don't really need the full server edition for hosting VM's. I want to use W2012 server as a VM anyway.

I've been quite a happy user of VMware workstation in the past but it's quite expensive and needs a full blown OS to run on even though it can now run VM's in the background.

I need to run the following Guest OS's (or VM's) on it ===> W2003 server, 2 XP PRO VM's (one ENG, on ISL), one W7 Enterprise, one W8.1 Enterprise and one W2012 server .

A:HYPER-V SERVER R2 (Esxi 5.5 needs PAID vCENTER - vmware)

Vcenter server was Never free Jimbo.

You can still use the existing client to manage vms on the free esxi 5.5, but you need to be sure that you do NOT upgrade the vm hardware on these VMs to version 10. Even newly created vms will start as version 8, it's a manual process to upgrade them and it comes with a warning that the web client will be required.

I'm actually pretty surprised this is being handled this way, but it's not likely a big issue unless you ignore the warnings.

HyperV was never a product I liked. Prior to Windows 8, remotely managing vms was a total nightmare with a bunch of dcom stuff you had to manually set up. It's still a crapshoot whether a Linux vm is going to work. I steer clear of this supervisor.

Citrix Zen server is a free product. Pretty good too.

There seems to be some debate about this, but I believe ESXi 6.0 is free, or at least there is a free version. Assuming I was going to download and use ESXi 6.0 and use the free version, is vSphere free, as well? We use vSphere often at work, and I swear I saw something about a license expiring.

I'm going back and forth in my head if I want to run ESXi or Hyper-V.

I don't have W8 as a dropdown on my ESXi menu and I'm getting a lot of bugs and issues to the point that I can't even install the RP as a VM.

Seems that everyone is able to run W8 on some flavor of a free hypervisor but I'm striking out finding info on ESXi. I've been able to get it working on earlier versions (CP and DP) but I don't want to go through the effort again for the RP.

Is there an easy fix or tutorial that I'm missing?

A:ESXi 5.0 - do I need to update to ESXi 5.1?

I have been running Windows 8 on ESXi 4.1 without problem. It won't show in the dropdown, but I just pick Windows 7 64bit as it's the next closest thing. You shouldn't need to be on 5.1 to run it.

Hi All,

I've been getting blue screen whenever I start any VM on my VMware workstation. This had happened in the past, but not so frequent, perhaps once a month. But since two days ago, this had happened whenever I click on starting my virtual machine. It blue screens within 2seconds.

I recently updated some drivers on my laptop. It is a Lenovo T430. I suspect it is my drivers causing the problem, but I can't pinpoint anything.

Here's the stuff I tried doing but to no avail:
1. Reinstalled VMware workstation.
2. Reset Bios settings.
3. Disabled Anti Virus
4. Run Vmware workstation as administrator.
5. Rollback both my Graphics drivers.

Hi there.

I posted this on W7 so for the benefit of those who don't frequent W7 Forums here it is.

VMWARE PLAYER - is Free version no longer available - Windows 7 Help Forums

However if anyone can find the OFFICIAL links to VMware player (Free) not using file sharing such as filehippo etc. please post.
People looking for a FREE version are hardly likely to click the BUY NOW button.

Seems VMware has found too many people were using the old FREE VMware player rather than buying Workstation.

Hopefully I'm wrong but the site doesn't even mention that VMware player is FREE for home users any more.

(Backdoor method link still up though - but for how long?).

A:Is Vmware player no longer Free

Yes, it's still free.

Look at this page: VMware Player Plus: Easiest Way to Run a Virtual Machine | United States

They tell you all about Player Plus, but if you scroll to the bottom, it has a section for the Free Player.

Here is the download page that has the Free Player: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/fre...are_player/6_0

And here is the FAQ where they discuss whether Free is still available and where it can be used: VMware Player Plus FAQs: Create and run virtual machines on a Windows or Linux PC | United States

Companies frequently do this with free products, bury them a little. This way people have to see and learn about the paid products and this encourages them to pay for the more advanced products.

Here's a freeware alternative to VMWare, which lets you host various operating systems inside your version of Windows.

I find it great for times when posters ask questions about other versions of Windows and Linux; I just start up VirtualBox and start that particular OS, and that OS runs inside a window.

Just today I have been getting numerous BSOD's, at least 7 over a period of 5 hours. I thought it may have been an issue with my ram however I'm almost at the end of my tether trying each stick on its own and such.

Noticed it most of the time while using IE however it also occurred while not browsing on IE. Happened during windows update aswell, and also happened while just at desktop.

Hi all
to those who don't want to shell out dollars for a purchase or upgrade of vmware workstation version 8 the FREE latest version of vmware PLAYER (version 4) works just fine.

Note however that while you CAN create vm's you don't get the full features of the paid for work station product such as "Cloning", "snapshots", Teams etc etc.

For testing current version of W8 this might not be a drawback to a lot of people so if you like using vm's under vmware the latest version of vmware player is just fine too --- did another install just recently of W8 so I have one under Esxi and another as a guest on W7 x-64.

Seems there will soon be a lot of defectors to Virtual Box, XEN, KVM, or HYPER-V soon. If you look at the VMWARE site there is now only mention of VMPLAYER PLUS (note PLUS or PRO in Software titles ALWAYS means PAY) and it's an astonishing 90 GBP / 110 EUR / 120 USD !!! + 20% VAT on top of that.

There doesn't seem to be ANY link to the FREE vmplayer product and even the vmplayer PLUS doesn't mention that it WAS free for home users.

Can't find any mention on the site that it's FREE any more.

If I'm looking for the FREE product I'm NOT going to click BUY NOW am I. !!!!

Hello!

I'm pretty new to virtualization and have a couple of questions, I hope you'll be able to help me get started with VMWare Playe Free.

1. How much of a performance boost will I get if I enable the hardware virtualization support in BIOS of my laptop? Would that have any (negative) impact whatsoever on my system when I'm NOT running VMWare Player?

2. When dedicating RAM for a virtual OS - is that only per session or constant? I have a 6 GB RAM laptop, will I "lose" 1 GB only when I'm running Windows XP in VMWare Player (if I dedicate 1 GB to XP) or will I always have only 5 GB available to my base OS (Windows 7)? Will I regain back that 1 GB when I quit the VMWare player? What about other resources (CPU, GPU etc.)?

3. Is there any performance impact on my laptop WHATSOEVER when VMWare Player is NOT running? I use my laptop for audio production so I'd need ALL available resources when I'm not playing with VMWare Player.

4. Can I install Apple OS-es in the Player? I know I can install Linux distributions and Windows. What about phone OS-es (like iOS and Android), are those supported too?

5. Can I load a pre-made system image into the Player and run it just as I would normally run it on my base system? I use Macrium Reflet Free for system imaging and backup.

6. Security - how secure is VMWare Player Free? If I get infected or change some settings, can this in any way reflect in the base system? Even hardcore stuff like rootkits or whatever ... Read more

I switched to a SSD drive and changed some indexing settings and better now. It is usually good to minimize number of emails in a specific folder, especially INBOX.

I have been Vindictus with a group of friends for approximately 2 months now, and have had no previous issues. This morning, I found a pop-up asking to patch the game (which i had left running overnight). I allowed the game to patch from the main company servers (Nexon), and after restarting my computer, was forced to allow the game to update using the third party software (Steam) that I play through. I received an error message that the launcher was not working, and launched the game without the launcher using the local .EXE (as is done by the developer, Nexon, and is local to Steam). I was able to play the game successfully for about an hour, when my music and game froze, and my computer restarted. I thought this was odd, so after letting the computer boot, i killed all non-essential programs and relaunched Vindictus. after about 30 seconds at the character selection screen, i received a BSOD. Over the next 4 hours, my computer restarted itself while i attempted to rectify the issue, with no BSOD. I have now updated every driver on my rig, and still receive the same restart, at various intervals.

I was browsing the internet when my system completely froze. No strange noises, blue screens of death or restarts to the bootup screens. It just froze. Was unresponsive to ctrl+alt+delete, couldn't alt+tab to anything. There was no way to do anything but power off. Usually when something like this occurs, I get some kind of error message upon logging back in, but I received nothing of the sort. So I thought it was a random one time error so I continued about my business.

About 10 minutes later, my PC froze again. So this time I log back in and do a quick spyware scan, a few low risk pieces of spyware, nothing big. Get rid of it and go on about my way. Shortly afterwards, I get my third freeze. Nothing responds at all. I restart and get into Safe Mode and scan my computer for viruses. There were no viruses found. So my system is spyware and virus free, to the best of my knowledge. I also updated Windows. I'm back on now, and thankfully I have not had another freeze (yet).

The only other thing I can think of is that starting a couple of days ago, my video card's fan is a bit louder than usual. I took it out and dusted it off with compressed air and inspected it, and it looked to be in fine shape. The noises that it is making, while louder than usual does not sound like it is dying (I've heard fans in their death throes before).

So I'm trying to figure out why it was freezing randomly like that.

So did Microsoft just make a new offer? No, this is about something has been offering for quite awhile. You just have to know what to look for.You can still get your hands on a no-cost upgrade to Windows 10 by turning to a page for people who use assistive technologies.Here is the page you want:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgradeThey use the term' 'assistive technologies' defined here:Assistive technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and also includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them.So this has a very broad range. I could include family member with a condition that would benefit ma technology that helps or rehabilitates. Also, Microsoft not putting down hard rules and proo0f of need or use. Until further notice,  you will use your own good judgement.Side note. Rather than install Windows 10 as an upgrade to anything, just install it as fresh install on a new disk or a clean partition.

I'm sure there is a subset of people who were resistant to upgrading to Windows 10 only until Microsoft said "OK the free upgrade offer is over now" when they decided "Oh yes it is".Allegedly it requires a call to MS support at a certain point in the process now, as it was subject to abuse.

It's not immediately clear what this is for. It isn't just for upgrading to a new o/s .

It has lots of other useful functions.

It consists of Partition Manager (personal edition ), and the Virtualization manager.

Even if you already have the partition manager, it is worth the download for the Virtualization manager.
That includes the Boot Corrector to resolve most common boot problems,
and P2P Adjust Recover the OS startup ability after system migration to a different hardware platform.

Also, unusually for GOTD downloads, Paragon normally let you keep the installer , so as long as you keep a copy of the product key - you can reinstall the product as often as you like.

Returnil Virtual System 2010 uses combination of antivirus, antimalware and a virtual system to protect your computer from all types of viruses and other malicious threats. The success of a product not only depends on its features and performance, but also on ease of installation. Upon installation, RVS automatically scans the system for viruses and other malicious software, which is essential for a safe and secure virtual environment.

Once the system has been confirmed to be free from malware, RVS 2010 clones (copies) your operating system and runs the cloned copy in a virtual system, allowing you to run applications in a completely isolated environment, rather than using the real operating system. Therefore, all activity, malicious or otherwise, will happen in the virtual environment, not in the real PC. If the PC is attacked or gets infected, simply restart your PC to erase all malicious changes that may have been installed on the virtual system. After restart, the system will be restored to its original state, as if nothing ever happened.

It is a big download because it includes an excellent bootable disc.

As usual with Paragon , though you have t d/l the app. , and get the product key today - once you have them , you can reinstall as often as you like.
Unzip the large file, run the setup.exe that GOTD wraps it in - then it will extract the actual installer direct to your C drive ( by default - but you can change that).

Copy the installer and your product key somewhere safe - for future use.
