VMWare Workstation logo (60 pix) VMware heeft versie 11.1 van zijn virtualisatiesoftware Workstation uitgebracht. Met dit programma is het mogelijk om een of meer virtuele computers aan te maken, waarop een groot aantal verschillende besturingssystemen kan worden geïnstalleerd. Op die manier kunnen ze naast elkaar worden gebruikt, in tegenstelling tot een dualbootopstelling, waarbij uit het ene of het andere moet worden gekozen. VMware Workstation is beschikbaar voor Windows en Linux, en een licentie kost net geen 200 euro. Meer informatie over de mogelijkheden van dit pakket kan op deze pagina worden gevonden. De release notes voor versie 11.1 kunnen hieronder worden gevonden.

New: Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand

Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is a secure, pay-as-you-go, cloud computing service offered by VMware that gives IT organizations a VMware compatible platform to create virtual machines, dynamically scale virtual machines and resources up or down, and pay for resources allocated.
  • Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand provides on-demand resources with granular metering and usage-based billing.
  • Resources are pool-based, allowing deployment of virtual machines with customized configurations.
  • Costs are billed monthly only for the aggregate amount of resources consumed across all of your virtual machines.
  • On-demand resources complement the subscription services for vCloud Air.
The following issues were resolved in VMware Workstation 11.1.
  • A Linux guest OS booted on EFI firmware sometimes failed to respond to the keyboard and mouse if any mouse motion occurred during a short window of time during OS boot. This issue has been resolved.
  • Outlook 2010 would occasionally crash when running in Unity mode. This issue has been resolved.
  • You could not compact or defragment a persistent disk. This issue has been resolved.
  • The UI sometimes crashed when a user copied and pasted a file between two Windows guests. This issue has been resolved.
  • Rendering corruption in UI elements in Fedora 20 guests with 3D enabled has been resolved.
  • When creating a new virtual machine with SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 12, the Easy Install path was not available. This issue has been resolved.
The following issues might occur in VMware Workstation 11.1.
  • 3D rendering is not available in some guest operating systems if you use virtual hardware version 11
    If you upgrade a virtual machine from virtual hardware version 10 to 11, you might lose 3D functionality in the virtual machine.
    Workaround: For Windows guest operating systems, upgrade VMware Tools to the latest version, which is included with Workstation 11. For Linux guests, only the following distributions are currently supported for virtual hardware version 11:
    • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and above
    • Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS and above
    • Fedora 20 with latest updates and above
    For other Linux distributions and versions, if you plan to use 3D functionality, downgrade the virtual hardware version to 10.
  • Virtual machines that you upload to vCloud Air cannot access the Internet
    You must use the VMware vCloud Air portal to configure outbound Internet connectivity.
    Workaround: Follow the instructions in the Knowledge Base article Allowing outbound Internet connectivity to a virtual machine within VMware vCloud Air (2053464)
  • Using certain Microsoft Office 2013 applications in a Windows 7 or later guest operating system can cause the guest to crash or the Workstation UI to become unresponsive.
    For example, if you use Outlook 2013 to compose and read email, after a while, the guest might crash, or after you use Word 2013 for a while, the Workstation UI might stop responding.
    Workaround: Turn off the 3D acceleration feature. From the menu bar, select VM > Settings > Display, and deselect Accelerate 3D Graphics.
  • Using a USB headset with a Windows 8 or later guest operating system does not work
    Because most USB headsets expect a USB 2.0 controller, whereas Windows 8 and later guest operating systems use a USB 3.0 controller by default, you cannot use USB headsets with Windows 8 or later guests.
    Workaround: Change the USB controller of the guest from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0.
  • The Easy Install feature is not supported for OpenSUSE 13.2
    Easy Install is not supported for the OpenSUSE 13.2 guest operating system.
    Workaround: Manually install the guest operating system and VMware Tools.
  • Using the Easy Install feature with a virtual machine that uses EFI will fail if the disk size is larger than 2TB
    If you attempt to select a hard disk larger than 2TB, the following error message appears: The specified virtual disk size is incompatible with Easy Install and may prevent the guest from booting properly. The disk must be smaller than 2 TB to use Easy Install.
    Workaround: Either choose a hard disk whose size is equal to or smaller than 2TB, or manually install the guest operating system.
  • Uninstalling Workstation from a Linux host and removing the configuration can prevent a shared virtual machine from being opened again
    If you are sharing virtual machines and then uninstall Workstation from a Linux host, remove the configuration, and then reinstall Workstation, you receive an error message when you attempt to open a shared virtual machine.
    Workaround: Stop sharing any virtual machines before you uninstall Workstation from a Linux host.
  • The fusemount feature works only if the fuse module is installed
    If you have a virtual machine with an operating system that does not have the fuse module installed, such as CentOS, you might receive an error when you select VM > Settings > Hardware > Hard Disk and select Mount Disk from the Utilities drop-down list. The error message reads The VMware fuse daemon failed to start.
    Workaround: Install the fuse module in the host operating system.
  • Cannot upload a virtual machine to VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand
    Uploading a virtual machine to VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is not yet supported by Workstation 11.
    Workaround: None.
  • Cannot access Help from Virtual Machine Settings dialog box
    You cannot access the Help system by clicking Help on the Virtual Machine Settings dialog box.
    Workaround: Select Help > Help Topics (Windows host) or Help > Contents (Linux host) to access the help system and use the Search tab or Contents tab to find the help topic.

Ik heb problemen met de Tools van Wmware hoopte dat die opgelost waren, ik krijg mijn beeld niet mooi vullend.
Normaal doe je fit guest now en springt die mooi in dat venster, maar nu gebeurt er niks.

Ik heb een verse install van Windows 10 in vmware draaien, bij eerdere windows 10 versies had ik dit niet pas sinds de laatste build die vrij gegeven was tijdje terug.

edit:

Hier een oplossing er voor tenminste even tijdelijk je moet wat uizetten

Bij de eerste build van v11 was dit een van de problemen: "Shutting down a virtual machine on a host running Windows 10 Tech Preview can cause a blue screen."

Die zie ik hier niet onder resolved en issues might occur staan :?
Misschien is het een probleem van Windows 10 en ligt het nog bij Microsoft?
Dan had ik verwacht dat dit probleem nog onder "issues might occur" zou staan.
Je Windows 10 host upgraden naar build 9926 – dan geen blue screen meer.
Ik zie dat het geheugen probleem er ook niet bij staat als je bv. veel geheugen hebt kun je bijna niets gebruiken.
Heb 20GB vrij maar VMWare denkt dat ik maar 2GB heb...
Moet prefvmx.minVmMemPct = "0" in mijn settings hebben om het te laten werken, wat nou niet direct de netste oplossing is.
Bij win10 als host lukt het bridgen van het netwerk niet. Ook al langer een issue
