Networking between the virtual machine with the operating system Linux in VMWorkstation

I'm new to Vmware Workstation 7

I had installed vmware workstation on XP. I created two virtual machines with RHEL 4. I am unable to network between two virtual machines.

I can't make a ping a machine to other Linux, which is the operating system on both the machine. However, cannot connect ftp or can't see computer networked in computer > network under linux...

I had used the guest network only on both the machine with the same adapter vmnet8 (considering as switch) and have assigned static IP address at a time



and also have installed vmware tools on both the machine...

can someone help me on this...

Disable all firewalls in your linux guests.

Host-Only is VMnet1, you used only NAT. static use of intellectual property and switch to DHCP for now. Make sure that the VMWare DHCP Server service is running. Put network cards in comments to "host-only '.

Post your host ' ipconfig/all'.

  • Average throughput of the network to a virtual machine with PowerCLI

    I would get average network throughput for a virtual machine with PowerCLI including all e-cards, the virtual machine has for the last week (not including NFS or storage of traffic-related).

  • Windows 8 can work with multiple operating systems

    Can I use windows 8 with several OS like windows7 & windows xp etc.

    Hello Aslam Dasadia,

    If you are referring to double or triple boot, i.e., starting from Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8 on the same PC and the drive, then the answer is Yes.

    Please keep in mind that Windows XP must be installed first. This is because Windows XP uses a different bootloader of Windows 7 and Windows 8. A good way to install is in order, for example, Windows XP first, followed by Windows 7 and Windows 8.

    An alternative is to use the Hyper V virtual machine software (provided with Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise of Windows 8) to create virtual machines of all operating systems. Personally, I use VMware Workstation (not free I'm afraid). VMware Workstation I running Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 with Windows 8 as the host and the other as guest operating systems.

  • How can I transfer a file from the operating system to a backup of the production running VM virtual machine?

    Problem:  After I do a backup one using ghettoVCB on a local VMFS volume, I have a virtual machine that I can start something happened to that running.  However, sometimes I just need a file from the OS level, which means that I would need to start to get them, but then I have an IP address conflict.  I can't imagine a way to have the NICs turned off and still be able to move the file.  If I change the IP addresses, the software that I need to create the file that I need to transfer no longer works because, although there no need of constant connectivity to the seller, it is locked to the public IP address.

    Material:  I have two 4 ESXi hosts to work, each with local VMFS volumes.  They share a private vlan common and a vlan common public.  They each ssh, ftp, wput, wget, and rsync available.  I have a Windows 2003 Server VM which also hosts a NFS and the VI client and other VMWare tools.  It also has private and public interfaces as do virtual machines that would be to make and receive the OS files.

    Question:  How can I transfer a file from the operating system to a backup of the production running VM virtual machine?

    Thank you!

    Yes Mr President, make sure you set the network on this virtual machine to be connected to the 'Internal' vswitch, you set up before turning the power on to the virtual machine.


  • do I have to buy the new key to run the operating system on a virtual machine personal use? SOS. SOS...


    I wanted to run vista on the same computer; but on a virtual machine. I wanted to know if I should buy a seprate key. I was perplexed because it is on the same computer at home. I wanted to use it for personal use as run the operating system on the virtual machine for programs to avoid viruses and use it kind of like a backup. I asked around only to meddle with the answers. Many people need to know the right answer to this question. Oh guys please keep this thread alive for others!

  • Can I use Lightroom CC between two Macs with different versions of the operating system

    I have the CC for photographers. I keep my work to Dropbox LR catalog and access them from my MacBook Air laptop or my desktop iMac computer. Currently, two computers are running the same version of Mac OS. I think to upgrade the laptop for the new OS of Sierra, but because the office is older, I thought maybe not upgrade (it is near the minimum end of systems that can run Sierra). Can someone tell me if there is a conflict with the help of the LR catalog between two computers if they are not both running the same version of Mac OS. When the catalog is saved in the operating system that you are starting, it would still be compatible for use on the computer with the previous version of Mac OS? Thank you! Barbara

    If the machines use the same version of the software, then the files should be feasible in both machines.

  • Cannot create a virtual machine with a vmdk file copied from another location, please find the attached error

    Hi all

    I copied a file from one place vmdk and try to make a new virtual machine with this vmdk file. But when I turn on after the creation of vm error is coming. Error in the text and the image below

    This error message generally if the hard files have been copied hosted as VMware Workstation product, which uses a format of sparse file that is not supported on an ESXi host. Instead of the hard copy, you can use VMware Converter, or - if you prefer - you can convert the hard using vmware-vdiskmanager (before transfer) or vmkfstools (after downloading). I deal to use vmkfstools you will need to load the mutliextent module (see for example "Clone or migration operations involving virtual discs non-VMFS on ESXi fail with an error" vSphere 5.1 Release Notes)


  • Create the virtual machine with the ISO mounted CDROM

  • Access to the network in all virtual machines lost after that put 8.1 to level.

    Today, I upgraded my host computer to Windows 64-bit Pro 8.1. I did the upgrade through the Windows store. There are no errors or problems during the upgrade.

    However: The host machine equipped with a Qualcomm E2200 network adapter, and it runs the 'Killer' Network Manager software called at startup. After the 8.1 update, when the machine did its last restart, Qualcomm Network Manager opened with a message that the LSP has not mapped correctly. I clicked 'YES' to remap it. Probably a stupid move on my part.

    Thereafter, I lost all network connectivity in all my virtual machines. I have virtual machines for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 RTM (not the preview) and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. ALL of them have lost the network.

    The host computer has no network problem and works well after the upgrade.

    Any ideas or suggestions to reset network connections in virtual machines?

    All virtual machines are set to use NAT.

    Oh I have to say also that the host computer is running VMware Workstation 10 and everything was fine and dandy, has never had problems at all until this upgrade/LSP remap thing. I have install VMware Tools in the VM of Windows 8.1, with no effect at all.

    Thank you.


    Two things, I'll try:

    1. go in the virtual network editor and restore settings. The culprit is probably the VMNet to NAT configuration.

    2. If this does not work, it seems that the virtual card for NAT does not somehow. The simplest workaround is to uninstall and reinstall the workstation.

  • Plan for the creation of new virtual machine with 3 TB data drive

    We have an old server, we need to virtualize, and one thing that we need is a lot more storage. We have approximately 3.25 TB of available for this machine (250 GB for the OS and 3 to for the data drives), but I'm going in circles trying to find the best approach for this server. It is not possible to separate the data between several players because of the way the files are indexed. I have created a virtual machine with 2 TB of disk space (for the readers of OS and data) and added 1.25 TB of disk space I want to add on the data reader, but it does not seem possible to add 1.25 TB without destroying the data on the first disk of 2 TB. What is the best approach? Create a single disc for my virtual machine that is 250 GB and then add in two separate disks of 1.5 TB for storage and combine them within Windows?

    Thanks for your suggestions.


    Unfortunately, the maximum size of virtual disk to a virtual computer is 2 TB - 512 bytes. In you case it should create two or three separate virtual disks and combine them (disks RAID 0 or concatenate). Another way (IMHO besser way) is to create several virtual drives and mount using NTFS mount points.

    An example:

    C:\Data is a folder on one of the virtual disks. Create a second virtual disks and create the C:\Data\Data2 folder. Rather than assign a drive letter for the newly created disk, you can mount it in the Database2 folder. This gives you the ability to move the largest files on separate virtual drives without lose you the structure of folders.

    Kind regards


  • create a new virtual machine with the default settings?

    I was wondering if there was a way to create a new virtual machine with the default settings.

    For example, let's say I want all new Lion VM to have 2 CPU cores. Is there a way to set this automatically? There are other parameters I want a new machine to inherit automatically, I was wondering if there is an automatic way to do this, or is it a feature request...

    On the orders of spcirpting, it would be unix commands or are there specific vmware controls that make your job easier (in Applications/VMware\ Fusion/content or elsewhere)...

    IIRC, VMware Fusion 3 and later versions has an AppleScript dictionary, but it is not yet officially supported and may not be able to do what you want so, basically, only Unix Shell scripts, that's what I was referring to.  For an example, see my script attached to the following response: Re: vmware - script of the creation of the vm and the operating system installation process

  • Create the virtual machine with the type of controller SCSI LSI logic SAS with PowerCLi

    Hey guys,.

    IM the difficulty to create a virtual machine with the type of controller SCSI to "LSI Logic SAS". The cmdlet New - VM im struggling to find where to create the type of controller?

    If you create a virtual machine without specifying a disk it will create a 4 GB SCSI type thick (0:0) hard drive 1 with 0 Parrall default BusLogic SCSI controller.

    What im wanting to do is to create a disk hard which is thin Prov. and create SCSI LSI logic SAS controller is set to.

    I have recived of aid by some LucD who helped direct the value of the network card in the New - VM cmdlet as follows. But I'm not able to add a hose for hard disk also like:

    | Get-hard drive | Together-hard drive - Datastore $datastore - slim StorageFormat

    And I have no idea how change the type of SCSI conroller or create it with the correct configuration?

    Any help would be great,

    Thanks in advance


    Greetings, steddyeddie-

    You should be able to use Set - hard drive and SCSI controller Set cmdlets to set the storage format of your hard drive and the SCSI controller type, respectively.  You were close to on the part of game - hard drive .  Try something like:

    ## get the VM object $vmVMSTORE23 = Get-VM VMSTORE23 ## set the harddisk storageformat to thin$vmVMSTORE23 | Get-HardDisk | Set-HardDisk -StorageFormat Thin ## set the SCSI controller type$vmVMSTORE23 | Get-ScsiController | Set-ScsiController -Type VirtualLsiLogicSAS

    It could pack in to your existing order to keep it as a good word, but for readability.


  • Create a virtual machine with the physical RAM total?

    I want to virtualize ESXi 4 on my MacBook Pro. However, I have 2 GB of RAM and ESXi 4 requires a minimum of 2 GB.

    I posted in the community of ESXi (is it possible to virtualize ESXi 4 with less than 2 GB of RAM?) and there is a solution for using ESXi with less RAM, but the problem is that I first need to run the installation with 2 GB.

    Basically, I tried to create a virtual machine with 2 GB, but the maximum I can use is 1840MB. Is it something that I do with Fusion to increase this limit? I understand that I am under a host operating system and requiring too little RAM, but just to get through the ESXi installation isn't it possible to push the VM of RAM to 2 GB and the host what OS increase the pagefile to deal with the lack of RAM?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you

    You may be able to edit the .vmx file and change the memsize option either 2048 or more. The merger is able to start a virtual machine with more memory that the host, just UI prevents common users to exceed the limits of security in general.

    I'm not quite sure what would happen if the VM actually tries to use all of the memory. If all goes well, it will be just talk and run slowly. Of course, the worst case are that it crashes.
