Transfer data from the laptop to the Virtual Machine.


I'm trying to transfer some data from my laptop to a virtual machine. This virtual machine is not in a domain or network. Not assigned an IP. How can I transfer files? I tried to mount VM to the local data store, but she only accepts ISO files. I'm trying to transfer files .txt and the .vbs file. Any idea?

Kind regards


If you are dealing with just text files you can activated copy / paste via the vSphere client -

    The same way you copy data from any drive to any other player.  Do not let the name of Secure Digital (SD) stupid - there is nothing special about a SD card, storage is the same as a USB is.  Simply copy the files by drag-and - move or by using a command prompt and a utility like ROBOCOPY.

  • VI do not transfer data from the instrument.

    Hello to all who are interested.  I'm working on an instrument driver for an Agilent D3000A generator of signal (E4432A) trying to get the generator to sweep the amplitude of - 30dBm to-75dBm and then come back in a loop.  The loop is in a structure of the event and is called by a switch on the front panel.  When the switch is selected event triggers and loop information is passed to the VI.  The problem is the 'Sweeping Steps' VI does not use data from the number of points in the sweep and pause at each time and the tracks of the loop as the amplitude is just switching between the min and Max amplitude levels.  But once I have stop the generator program will continue sweeping (only in a sense) but the correct time and the number of points.  When I use the spy "measurement and Automation Explorer" program AND I do not see that the data are transferred in the instrument.  I don't know if the Subvi the execution order is correct and was amazing if someone could take a look and let me know if I have them in one order incorrectly.  Could not find an example of this type of program examples of the driver so there is little help.  I joined the program and the driver of instruments for your comment, then please take a look and send any information you think will help me to get this working properly.  I have also tried to run the single sweep mode sweep and have just the change of direction for the sweep to the other side of the ramp, but I still get the same results.

    The generator has 15th and ONU3 options.

    I, m using LabVIEW 2010 on a Dell Dimension 2400 running Windows XP and service pack Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600.
    Please let me know if you need other information.

    Thank you

    Just for the short term, right click on the structure of the event, select Configure the events managed by this case and uncheck the lock front panel.  Also, I don't know if you caught my edit.  I think your problem is your expectation (or lack of).  At your expectations to be slightly more than the number of steps to multiply by the pause time.  You must leave the instrument perform its scanning after all.

  • Hardware changes reported after moving from the virtual machine to a host of W7 W8 host.

    I tried to move a virtual machine with the guest OS Windows 8 used in the VMware Workstation 9.02

    my HP desktop with Intel core i7-2600 processor, running Windows 7

    to my Toshiba laptop with Intel core i7-4700MQ processor, running the latest version of Windows 8.

    I did something like that all the time with my old laptop with i7-2630QM running Windows 7.

    It turns out that something changes significantly when the host of the laptop operating system passes W7 to W8.

    After starting the virtual machine on my laptop W8, I clearly stated it had been MOVED and NOT copied.

    Unfortunately when I try to use one of the Office 2010 applications, I get a message that the change of
    HW has been detected, and that I must again request (purchase new license I guess).

    Can someone help me solve this problem. For me the time is important.

    I'm leaving for a business trip to 3 weeks and the old laptop is no longer appropriate.

    It seems to be normal, because the changes to the hardware (RAM, CPU,...)

    may be a reason for reactivation of Microsoft Windows or Microsoft Office.

    I had such a situation, the upgrade of RAM.

    So if you have the license, activate it again.

    Hope has helped you.

  • Script in time of latency list vm e/s and the data store the virtual machine is on

    Hello.  We have a vsphere 5.0 environment and we live a latency of IO heavy.  I'm looking for powercli script will get the latency of i/o for each virtual machine and get the data store name, to what it is now.  We will access our storage on optical fiber.  I'm trying to get a good overview of the latency of IO in a nice view in a csv file.  I found what could be a good basis to & tstart = 0 , but I'm not sure how to get the name of the data store in the table and I think that it is written to the nfs in any case storage.  Thanks in advance for any info\advice!

    Try the next version, it includes the average latency time read/write for the virtual machine and PAHO are / s average for the virtual machine.

    Since the CSV has a row for each data store, the values for the virtual machine are repeated.

    I also added the host name

  • Details of the data of the virtual machine store

    Hi all

    Thank you is advanced.

    I'm trying to get the details of the virtual machine and its data store name, freespaceGB to n csv file. After excuting it I'm getting only the out put of the VM last on my list. Hope that I missed something in the addition of the output. Can someone please help.

    The result is that I'm looking is something like that.

  • HA does not restart the computer from the virtual machine


    I have two ESX in a cluster.  ESX 1 have an XP machine. When I stop esx 1, the machine automatically goes to ESX 2 and has not restarted?

    I though that the machine needs to be restarted, but it does not restart. Is it supposed to the case that it does not restart?



    The virtual machine power on or off the power on esx2?

    What will HA is to turn off the XP on ESX1 when it is isolated from the network (which means unable to ping the default gateway) then ESX 2 will import and turn it on. Therefore, this

    will require a reboot. You must set the response of isolation to "turn off" so that it works. The easist HA of test is to unplug the network cable from the service console. This

    will trigger the isolation.

  • VMWare Fusion makes a break from the virtual machine because the disk is almost full.

    Is I myself am sitting at my computer this morning, I saw a message that says the guest system Windows XP Pro on my Mac Mini has been suspended.  Here is the message:

    "VMware Fusion has suspended this virtual machine because the disk on which the virtual machine is stored is almost full."

    I can't find a way to shut down Windows to resize hard disk space allocation.  I tried the Virtual Machine menu, but all the shut down/put off the power points are grayed out.

    Any ideas out there?

    You must read the message!

    BTW if force you the VM to the bottom you may corrupt the virtual system hard disk and or the VHD file and you need to just do as the message says and free up space on the OS X hard disk even if you temporarily move a few things on an external hard drive so that you can then reactivate the Virtual Machine and continue on the it.

  • Satellite L300 - how to transfer data from the old HARD drive?

    I have a toshiba Satellite 2410-504, which gave me the blue screen so I bought a L300 to replace.
    Different are documents and photos I would like to recover from the old tosh-

    Can I switch from hard drives overall if they are compatible or y at - it an advance to do and how... help!

    The only way I know, it's that you buy an external HARD drive enclosure where you can put in the old HDD. Connect the HARD drive old this is the case with the USB cable to your laptop new and then you can copy your documents and photos.

    These cases are not expensive and s for external HARD drive are very practical.
