  • VMware problem

    i am trying to run "VMware Server" on my vista x64 machine. i have not been successful because it defaults to a remote host and not a local host. i can get this to work on XP pro, but i am not installing an OS just for one program. i was wondering if anyone has been able to run VMware Server from a vista x64 machine.

    it asks for these 3 inputs:

    Machine or server name.... i tried the name of my machine
    username i put the name of my acct on my machine
    password... i put my password in

    nothing....

    and also: if you see this as an opportunity to bash vista, save your breath... its my only problem so far

      Re: VMware problem

      Have you tried just using "localhost" for Server Name?

      Sometimes a program won't recognize your own system name if it runs on the same system.

      What is the username and password for? It is for a admin account on the VMWare software? Or is it for a database user?

        What version of VMware server are you trying to run?

        There were recent issues with VMware server (GSX) and Vista where it just wouldn't work at all. You could install it just fine, but there were always authentication issues with Tomcat when you tried to get into the console.

        I've not tried running GSX on my Vista machine since then, but that was close to a year ago.

          the first install was 1.0.6, but just yesterday, i installed 2.0RC1, it installed fine, and when i clicked on the shortcut it made on the desktop, it opened firefox and a new tab, it said the certificate was self made and invalid, so i bypassed that. and it opened what looked almost exactly like vmware server, but prettier. i was happy, so i made a vm, and "inserted" an iso into the cd drive, and clicked the run button..... there is NO form of graphical interface unlike the previous version i am using elseware. just a list saying.... Virtual Machine has turned on... Virtual Machine has successfully Posted... Virtual Machine is loading Fedora Core 8 installation from drive E: but i cant actually get INTO the VM


          i am downloading 1.0.7 in better hopes of it working this time


          its either get this thing going, or do my homework at the labs at school after 4pm.... i dont want to stay late 3-4 days a week...... if all else fails, i am enrolled in a program that allows me access to every microsoft OS for free... so i could just download XP Pro x64 or something if i get desperate, but id rather not dual boot...

            picture this as a error dialog box
            Code:
            There was a problem connecting:
            
            
            
            Host address lookup for server local failed: The requested name is valid, 
            but no data of the requested type was found
            Code:
            There was a problem connecting:
            
            
            
            Cannot connect to host localhost: No connection could be made because
            the target machine actively refused it
            which is a better error?

              http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/...7953&SiteID=17 is the same as my problem, but downgrading 4 versions seems like the backwards thing to do
