What is the proper way to remove a virtual machine in VMware Player?

I created a machine virtual in VMware Player but not yet installed the operating system. I would like to delete the virtual machine and start from the beginning of the process. What is the proper way to remove a virtual machine in VMware player?

Just curious, have you even looked in the help file in VMware Player?  It tells you how to remove a Virtual Machine.

With the Virtual Machine off, right-click in the Virtual Machine library and select: remove VM disk

  • What is the best way to backup of virtual machines on a standalone ESX with the data store local


    I want to save the virtual machines on a host ESX autonomous. and all of these virtual machines is the local data store.  What is the best way to save these virtual machines in this situation?

    And probably we don't provision VTL on the local data center, so it is possible to use VCB to backup? And VCB is a good choice compared to the traditional method that installs the backup client in each virtual machine?   Because I think that in this situation with the data store local, it cannot not reduced the load on ESX hosts and network overhead can be avoided.

    Thank you!


    > 1. VCB usable remote tape library? I mean it's not local library and uses the tape library to another network data center.

    VCB is completely unrelated to the tape library, it is a framework, not a backup solution. If your standard backup software can work with the remote tape library you can try it to ungrateful with VCB.

    > 2. what the difference bwteen hot - added NBD and modes if there is that an ESX host with store data local and want to use a virtual machine like VCB proxy? I think that they are the same: the VCB proxy read data through the I/O of the ESX host stack in this situation.

    NBD works on network and the backup traffic goes through the service console connection. Hot add uses special machine for assistance to connect vmdk to and uses of e/s disk stack instead of e/s network.

    > 3. Veeam Backup is free software?

    No, it isn't.

  • What is the best way to collect newspapers to send to Vmware

    I have ESXi 4.1

    I recently sent newspapers in support, on request, after we have a host to freeze on us.

    They responded back that newspapers have not capture anything because a restart updated newspapers and only a syslog would be able to provide clues before a crash.

    Is it true because it's strange that newspapers would be destroyed after a reboot.

    The syslog offers a challenge because we cannot control the level of gravity on the host, so we threw ourselves with a lot of useless information.

    We need the newspapers to find out why our guests are crashing and requiring us to restart.  On one occasion, we do not have vmotion virtual machines to another host.

    Once we did it, but the host did not until we rebooted it.

    What is the best way to collect newspapers send it to vmware for analysis?

    Thank you


    On ESXi, if you create a partition important stripe, yes the newspapers would disappear on reboot.

    Syslog is the right way to enter it.

  • What is the best way to remove a hum in the context of multiple clips

    I have about 40 short excerpts with the same buzz in the background. What is the best way to get rid of it? I know how to make a video, but I can do everything at the same time? When the workflow is the best time to do this? Should I use an adjustment layer?

    Thank you!

    I always do everything removing Hum as the first operation. As Bob says it depends on snoring, but if it's typical induced current then the DeHummer tool is the best to use. Once you have found the right settings you can save as a favorite and the use of batch processing to remove all clips at once.

  • creating a resource? What is the proper way to store strings?

    I have a workflow that works pretty well. It dynamically retrieves a list of groups based on a server I selected in a menu drop-down. Once the user selects a group, the workflow adds a (vm) member to this group on the selected server.

    It uses the module for powershell do. However, the powershell module is quite slow.

    This translates the user to wait some time before the workflow is ready to operate.

    I thought maybe I could create a different workflow which, on a regular basis (perhaps all a few hours), retrieves the list of groups for each server that is in my drop-down list, and then updates a resource.

    When the workflow runs, it looks like just the resource for a list of groups rather than he fetch manually everytime.

    It's a stupid way of doing things or am I on the right track? If so, just trying to figure out how I can create a resource I can update dynamically on a regular basis.

    Thank you!

    I don't know what system you'll pick up groups.

    If possible, I would try to implement this natively in vCO and check how fast it can be.

    If it is slow, then the method you described would work. If what you get is an array of objects the easy way to share the value would be an element with an attribute with a type array of what your configuration object. You can then use that as your other attributes of workflow that connects to this attribute of the configuration element.

    For the definition of the configuration item, you can do a config.setAttributeWithKey (attributeName, array);

    If it is fast, so you can use it to set a property of presentation of default bound to your action.

  • What is the proper way to add behaviors to text?

    I seem to have bad to add behaviors correctly.

    What I want to do is to select a few words of the text and apply a behavior, particularly the behavior of the browser window when a user clicks on the selected text. I got this working in what I know is not the right way. The only way I can make it work is if the text of the link also has a a href link set up (using the property inspector) pointing to this page. Now if I simply select text and go to there to add behavior through the tag Inspector panel many of my choices are grayed out. I'm not great code-savy, but I do not understand that these behaviors should / can be applied to the tags?

    You can see some examples of what I'm talking about you here: http://www.philasecurities.com/luncheon_meetings.html . In the lunch calendar, click on «more...» "links and a new, small window should open. 

    How should I apply these correctly?

    Thank you


    Pop-up in Dreamweaver (behaviors panel)

    1 insert an image or type text.

    2. Select and go to the properties panel link field.  Locate the file or type the full URL (http://example.com).

    3. go to the behaviors panel and click on the plus sign to add a new behavior.

    4. Select opens the browser window.

    5 browse to file or type the URL (Yes, a 2nd time).

    6 adjust the height, width, and other optional attributes for your popup window. (See link below for more details)

    http://help.Adobe.com/en_US/Dreamweaver/CS/using/WSc78c5058ca073340dcda9110b1f693f21-7b07a .html

    7. click on OK.

    8. check that the triggering event for the behavior is onClick.  If this is not the case, click the box to view other event options.

    9 IMPORTANT!  Back in the properties panel and replace the first URL in the link with javascript :() field that is the primary link in a null link.  If you do not do this, this link will open twice: once in the shortcut menu, and then in the parent window.

    Save your page and preview in browsers.

  • What is the best method to transfer a virtual machine from one PC to another?

    I am a novice in VMWare workstation. I created my first SharePoint 2010 development VM, and my boss wants me to give him a copy of my SP 2010 VM. He told me to just give him the. VMX file, but I believe that there must be a better method to transfer a virtual machine from one PC to another.

    Thanks in advance.



    to transfer a virtual machine from one PC to another, shut down the virtual computer and copy the complete folder with all the files (vmx, vmdk,...) on another PC.

    A thin to keep in mind (outside the Windows license) if the virtual machine is one attached to your network, you must change the copied disk - as you would with a cloned physical system - to have a unique host name, MAC address and IP address.
