    I upgraded my Vmware Player installation to v14.1.2 on a 64bit Win7 Pro system.

     

    After that I double clicked "as usual" on my Mint64.vmx file to start the Linux Mint VM.

     

    Surprisingly this time Vmware player tells me an error:

     

    "Unable to connect to the MKS: Too many socket connect attempts; giving up"

     

    Whats wrong?

     

    I am not using (on this computer) other products like vSphere or similar. Just Vmware Player

    Since the VM itself worked successfully in the past the error must be in the v14.1.2 version of VmWare player.

     

    How can I repair it?

    I've been using vmware free workstation player without any issues for several years. Lately however the guest OS, ubuntu linux, stops responding to mouse clicks after the player has been running for a while. The vmware player responds - I can access all the player controls and use the power option to shut down or restart the guest, which is now what I do every time this happens. I'm running windows 10. Any ideas?

    Hi,

     

    Running current non-beta VMWare Workstation Player

    on a Kubuntu 18.04 64Bit L.T.S. Linux host

    with a genuine Windows 10 Pro 64Bit guest.

     

    Have a SEVERE issue with VMWare Workstation Player:

    When I shutdown or reboot the Win 10 guest

    my Linux host freezes and I am forced to do a hard reset?

     

    I've checked my desktop hardware and it's not that.

    I've also checked the Win 10 guest on another desktop and the problem is there too.

    I've been using this Win 10 guest for over a year without issues.

     

    Any help would be appreciated as I use the Win 10 guest often...

    Thanks!

    Hello,

     

    I have tested some virtual machine running with vmWare Player with a Windows Server 2016 as OS host. The problem I have is that, randomly, the virtual machine hangs up and the Host also stops. The screen is freeze, the keyboard and mouse move but without any action and I have no access using RDP to the Host. Also the clock in the desktop is freeze. After some random time (20-25 minutes) I can recover the control of the system and all goes normally until it hangs again some time after. Which could be the problem? I can not detect it. I am using vmware Player 14.0

     

    Thank you in advance.

     

    Regards, Javier.

    Hi,

     

    I have issue with running Vmware Player on Centos 7.5 (3.10.0-862.3.3.el7.x86_64).

     

    I have installed this products:

    Product Name         Product Version 
    ==================== ====================
    vmware-player        14.1.2.8497320
    vmware-vix           1.17.0.6661328

    But when I tried to run virtual machine, the last line in log file vmware-vmx-XXXX.log is:

    2018-06-20T17:24:17.461+02:00| vmx| W115: Failed to load the KeyLocator cache from VMHS

    I tried to Google that message, but there is no page thats contains that message. Do you know what to do with that?

     

    Thanks!

    I've started running into a problem with outbound SSH connections from a linux guest being dropped as soon as connection is established.  The issue is repeatable and fixable with a kludge that modifies QoS.

     

    The issue manifests itself by dropping the connection immediately after establishing it:

    $ ssh $host

    packet_write_wait: Connection to $host port 22: Broken pipe

     

    Enabling verbose flags (-v or -vvv) doesn't show anything remarkable.

     

    I've been in contact with my linux distribution's maintainers[1] and they have helped narrow the problem down to an issue with vmnat misbehaving.

    Because vmnat do not recognise AF21/CS1 DSCP flags, it'll send back a RST packet (don't know why) immediately upon received any packet having either flags, and finally break all ssh connection. (This happens soon after authentication since IPQoS applies during channel establish) [2]

    This is on VMWare Workstation 12 Player, version 12.5.9 build-7535481, running on Win 7 Enterprise.  My guest is running a current Linux kernel (4.9.95) and openssh 7.7_p1-r4 (though it seems like any software that uses QoS will have this problem.)

     

    Setting alternate QoS flags seems to work around the issue, e.g. ssh -o IPQoS=throughput ...

    Hi,

     

    I had been running VMWare Workstation Player 12.5.0 on a Windows 7 host for nearly two years.

    I recently had Windows 10 installed with VMWare Workstation Player 12.5.9 and started having issues.

    Every once in a while (i.e. about once a day) VMWare Player would crash with the following error:

     

    VMware Player unrecoverable error: (svga)

    Exception 0xc0000005 (access violation) has occurred.

    A log file is available in "C:\Users\Username\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu 64-bit vtx\vmware.log". 

    You can request support. 

    To collect data to submit to VMware technical support, run "vm-support".

    We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.

     

    I also tried downgrading to 12.5.0 but the issue persists.

    Any ideas what I could do/try about it?

    I could not find vm-support.

     

    Thank you!

    Hello All,

     

    I have a Linux VM that was created using the VMware Converter from P2V. The linux guest boots up just fine, and everything seems to be working except for Bridged networking. Even though I have bridged networking selected, it still appeared to be using the NAT setting anyway, given the IP Address the VM currently has.

     

    I had noticed that there were no vmnet# adapters showing in the Win10 host. So I uninstalled VMware Player 14.1.1, then I downloaded the newest Player version 14.1.2 from vmware.com. After the install I am seeing 2 "new" network adapters in the Windows host. However, it still appears to have the same result.

     

    I have Bridged Networking and Replicate Physical Network State enabled for the VM but the Virtual Machine is getting an IP Address from VMnet8, shown in the outputs below:

         *I tried it without Replicate Physical network state as well, with same result...

    Any ideas what could be happening here?

     

    From the Linux guest, if I telnet to one of our switches, and then check who is connected to the switch via telnet, I can see the IP Address of my Win 10 host. So it appears to be using NAT, whether or not I've selected NAT or Bridged.

     

    Thanks in Advance,

    Matt

    Traditional way to distribute proxy/filter software is as an executable file. The security prompt by windows might scare some users and rightly so. Alternatively the same software could be distributed as a virtual appliance. And ported to linux so there are is no need for a windows license. Then its ability to harm the host system or get nosy with private data is greatly reduced so people should feel a little safer with it.

     

    Next issue is how to prevent others from stealing the software or developing software that does the same thing. As the software is a proxy, its VM display can just be blank. How can it be made harder to see what the VM is doing and what its disk contains? Can the ram be encrypted or something? Can the VM be locked to host hardware much like windows activation works?

    How can you activate Virtual XP in Windows 7 Pro?  I have tried using the set of 9 groups of 6 digits each and at the end was informed that the transaction cannot be completed.  That I need to go back to the retailer or developer.  Microsoft was no help regarding this matter.

    Hello;

     

    I have Windows 10 host (build 17134.137) and Ubuntu 18.04 guest with VMWare tools installed.

    After few hours of usage, images in the guest OS begin to appear corrupted and soon after that

    the host OS freezes. My display adapter is NVidia P6000 (driver version 391.74).

     

    What could cause this behavior?

     

    thank you in advance!

    I'm trying to help someone convert their static disk to dynamic so it won't use as much space. He's using VMware Workstation 14 Player (free for non-commercial use). Hopefully this question fits in this forum. After some Googling I learned about vmware-vdiskmanager but I can't find it on the computer so it must not be included with this version of VMware. I can add a disk to an already existing VM and make the new disk dynamic. However, there's no option to create a dynamic disk (none I saw) when creating a VM so he has a disk in a VM he made that isn't dynamic but it needs to by dynamic to save space. How can I convert it from static to dynamic without vmware-vdiskmanager? Can vmware-vdiskmanager be downloaded and installed separately?

    I did a P2V with vCenter Converter of a Windows 10 Pro laptop to run it as virtual machine.

     

    I booted this new vm in VMware Player 14 but the keyboard is not working while the mouse is ok. I could use the On-Screen keyboard to login but obviously I cannot work only with the On-Screen keyboard. 

     

    Does someone know of a fix to this problem?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi,

     

    Am using vmware workstation player 14 which is installed on CentOS 7.x physical server.

    I just want to know How can I monitor the VMware Workstation Player Services ? What are the parameters/services which I need to check for the VMware Player's application status?

    If these services stopped then our monitoring tools need to be configured accordingly to pick alert.

     

    Thanks in Advance.

    I'm using workstation player free 14 on ubuntu 16.04.

    Running a VM of windows 8 on a regular disk (not ssd). The disk performance seems really bad and at 100% with 14 seconds latencies.

    When watching iotop it shows 10+ vmware-vm-thread that are doing io. My guess is that it's thrashing the disk. Is this normal behaviour?
