General :: Auto-mount Virtual Machine Locations When VMware Image Finishes Loading?

Jun 20, 2011

I mount a few locations from a VMware virtual machine, but currently every time I start up VMware I need to re-mount the locations once the VMware image has started up fully, which gets tedious. I'd like to be able to mount them automatically when VMware is started.

I generally double-click the .VMX file (which is associated with VMware Player) to launch the virtual machine, but once it has finished loading I would need to run the mount commands manually or execute a bash script that does it.

Is there any way you can think of to have it done automatically? One way I can think of is to start my virtual machine by running a script that starts VMware player, sleeps for a minute or so, then runs the mount command - but setting the right sleep interval would be difficult because this varies a fair bit - and overall, it's a solution that's kinda icky and that I'd like to avoid if there's some better option.

Fedora :: Start A Virtual Machine In VirtualBox?

Jul 4, 2010

Every time I try to start a virtual machine in VirtualBox I get this error:

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. So I run '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' in the terminal as root and I get this:

Ubuntu :: VirtualBox 3.1.8 - Virtual Machine Hangs During Boot?

May 13, 2010

I recently installed VirtualBox 3.1.8 r61349 from the deb file virtualbox- .1_3.1.8-61349~Ubuntu~lucid_amd64.deb onto a recent clean install of Lucid Lynx on my HP p6210f (6144 MB RAM, AMD Athlon II X4 620 CPU). I then imported a friend's VM and tried to boot it. The VM consistently hangs with the following showing on the console (this is the last 3 lines, for context):

NetLabel: protocols = UNLABELED CIPSOv4
NetLabel: unlabeled traffic allowed by default
NET: Registered protocol family 2

I thought initially it was a problem with my friend's VM, so I decided to create a new VM from scratch, and boot from a CentOS-5.4-i386-DVD instead, which I have done before with previous versions of VirtualBox. When I do that, I'm able to select my installation method (so I know it's booting from the CentOS ISO), and then it hangs at exactly the same point. I couldn't find any other mention of this problem, but it's a pretty recent release of VirtualBox - I think just days old.

The VM: OS Type=RedHat (presumed 32-bit), 1 processor, 1024 MB RAM

General :: Cannot Boot Window Virtual Machine On OSX

Feb 4, 2010

In order to get the work done I use a Macintosh Macbook Pro (4,1) with a Boot camp partition running Windows 7.This allows me to use my favorite OS (OSX) with my required work environment (Win7 & .Net) when ever I need them.To allow me smooth usage I use Parallels 5 to virtually boot my Win7 machine from within OSX but whenever I want to do some heavy lifting I reboot into Windows 7 (on boot camp) which allows me to use my laptop's entire resources for my work.

My problem is this: I am now about to begin work for a company in Tel Aviv which uses Linux desktops for development and I need to follow suit. So I've given my self a new Quest: Set up the ultimate web development platform. My goal is this-

1. Install the three operating systems one along side the other - OSX, Ubuntu & Windows 7.

2. Set each one of them up in such a way that allows me to boot into it (meaning I can have any one of these OSs running on its own when I want.

3. Use parallels to virtually boot my Win7 partition - this allows me to keep using Office 2007, which I use often.

4. optional! Use parallels to virtually boot the Ubuntu OS also.

I have managed to complete goal 1 & 2.But I simply can't get 3...In theory it isn't a problem to install windows & OSX along side each other and virtually boot the windows under OSX using parallel's bootcamp virtualizer- BUT - the moment I install Linux along side the other two it break's parallel's virtualizer and it can't boot. I think it is due to parallel's in ability to use GRUB but I'm not actually sure about that.

I am considering compromising and going for a system like this:

1. Install OSX and Ubuntu on the laptop - which means I can boot into each of them.

2. Create a virtual machine for Win7 using parallels.

But that will be a real compromise as far as I'm concerned and I hope to find a way to set up the machine as I described earlier (three OSs which can be booted independently and also loaded in VMs).Just to make sure I'm clear - I HAVE MANAGED to install three independent OSs on the same machine - but that always prevents me from booting them as VMs using parallels...

Ubuntu :: RAM (4GB) Should Allocate To The Virtual Machine?

Jun 15, 2010

My current plan is to choose a lightweight host OS such as Ubuntu or XP, and then install a virtual machine with Windows 7 as the guest OS. Most importantly, I will use the guest OS almost exclusively. I would like to install all of my software onto the guest OS and then save a "snapshot", as Virtual Box puts it. This is to keep my system free of any unwanted programs I will undoubtedly encounter.

Here are some specific questions I would like answered:

What would be good choices for host operating systems?

What percent of my total RAM (4GB) should I allocate to the virtual machine?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using different visualization software such as Virtual PC, Virtual Box, and VMware Server?

I play a lot of games on Steam. What problems may arise?

Ubuntu :: 3CX IP PBX In Windows 7 Virtual Machine?

I then installed the latest version of 3CX in this virtual machine/Windows7 environment and used the back up config to setup the new 3CX system. It works great, but for one thing....

Networking :: Outgoing Local Trafic Over Virtual Interface Has Not Virtual Ip Address

Aug 25, 2009

When I create virtual ethernet interface and do a ping -I <v_int> <host> the outgoing address is the one of the physical interface and NOT the virtual interface.Is there no chance that trafic will go out with virtual interface address??Incoming trafic is done well i.e. responds to the virtual interface have the virtual address.

My problem is that I have 2 modems and want to check both default gw behind the modems.
If I do a "normal" ping both are reachable over default route even the modem which is not the default route will not work because ping goes over the working modem.So I have 2 routing tables and want to route the virtual interface to one modem the other to the other modem

First virtual host that the second is also directed to...in sites-available/sites-enabled (note port 80 is blocked by my isp so I use 8080)


Second virtual host file


And my hosts file


# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

Also I'm using a dyndns.org...would that make a difference?
