Install Ubuntu 10.10 on VMware Player,Workstation with Working VMware Tools

Installing and running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat on VMware is easier than VirtualBox with current version of both products. After publishing a post recently about Ubuntu 10.10 on VirtualBox with little difficulties, I found installation on VMware is easy and straight forward. This post explains how to install Ubuntu 10.10 on VMware Player and install VMware tools successfully to get all additional features.

It’s worth to try new features on  Maverick Meerkat without disturbing your existing OS. Upgrading or installing in production environment is not recommended till final version available by October 2010. VMware Player is a free desktop virtualziation software which you can use to install Ubuntu 10.10 as a virtual machine.

Steps to install Ubuntu 10.10 on VMware Player 3.1.1

1) Download the Maverick Meerkat Linux ISO file from official site here. Make sure you have latest VMPlayer 3.1.1

2) Create a new virtual machine and browse the ISO file to CD ROM. It will detect OS and version automatically.

3) “Easy Install” is a cool feature which we can use to install Ubuntu 10.10 and VMware tools in unattended mode without user inputs. So fill up the user name and password in next screen which is important for further installation steps.

4) Configure the virtual disk size and location of VMDK file. Enable ‘Accelerate 3D graphics’ under display to get better video performance.

5) Start VM and be relaxed for some time. ‘Easy install’ will do the all steps automatically, restart and install VMware tools too.

6) Successful installation of OS and VMware tools will return the login prompt for user name created during configuration.

Go to ‘Virtual Machine’ menu and select ‘Enter Unity’. If it works that it means VM tools installed correctly.

7) Here is the multiple screen resolution sizes on Ubuntu 10.10 which is running on VMware Player. Adjusting screen resolution size, drag and drop files between windows host and Ubuntu 10.10 guest and unity mode worked well after installation.

Manual Method to Install VMware Tools on Ubuntu 10.10

By any chance you want to do it in manual method, specially after upgraded existing OS, then follow the steps.

1) Go to ‘Virtual Machine’ in menu and press ‘Install VMware Tools’ option. This will mount the ISO file to CD drive as ‘VMware Tools’.

2) Extract the tar.gz file to local folder.

3) Open terminal (  Application –> Accessories –> Terminal) and go to the extracted folder in above step.

4) Once you locate the vmware-install.pl script as shown below,

type

sudo ./vmware-install.pl

Provide root password and restart VM after the completion.

Now, enjoy the additional features and wide screen resolutions in Ubuntu 10.10 on VMware Player or workstation.

Have any difficulties? Share it on comments area. If you think this post is useful, then please share with others.

Install Debian VMware Tools on VMWare Workstation Player •

VMPlayer is a great alternative to VirtualBox to test out new software. Virtual Machines are your digital playground for evaluating new software to avoid messing with your production environment (likely your home media server) and breaking something.  In another post, I showed you how easy it is to install Debian in a virtual machine using VMPlayer on Windows. Now I will show you how to pimp your virtual machine to make your life super convenient.

After installing VMWare tools you will be able to drag and drop files between your host and virtual machine, map shared folders for your virtual machine to use and share your clipboards. All of these features (many of which were unreliable for me using Virtualbox) make virtual machines very powerful tools.

Install Debian VMware Tools on VMWorkstation Player

Run your Debian virtual machine from VMPlayer or VMWorkstation.

First we need to mount the VMware tools disk image, then we can install VMware tools on the Debian virtual machine.

Mount VMware Tools on Debian

Usually you will be prompted to install VMware Tools for Linux so click Download and Install

Install the required building tools and linux headers for Debian, use SSH or the Terminal.

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install uuid-runtime build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) -y

Mount the VMware tools that VMPlayer inserted into the virtual CD drive.

sudo mkdir /mnt/vmwaretools sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/vmwaretools

You should see one of the messages below, both mean the disk image was mounted in the virtual drive.

mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only mount: /dev/sr0 already mounted or /tmp busy

If you get this error then click Install VMTools from the VMPlayer menu again.

mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0

Enter the mount point for VMWare tools on Debian then try and list the directory contents.

cd /mnt/vmwaretools ls

If you get this error, reboot and mount the VMWare virtual disk again.

ls: reading directory .: Input/output error

Install VMWare Tools on Debian

Unpack the VMWare tools tar file

cd /mnt/vmwaretools tar -xf VMwareTools* -C /tmp

Enter the following commands in the terminal to finish installing the VMWare tools.

Enter the vmware tools directory we have just unpacked.

cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib

Run the VMware tools perl installer with sudo (administrative) powers and accept the defaults with the -d switch.

sudo perl vmware-install.pl

You will get a warning, make sure to say yes.

open-vm-tools are available from the OS vendor and VMware recommends using open-vm-tools. See http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2073803 for more information. Do you still want to proceed with this legacy installer? [no] yes

You can accept the defaults by pressing enter for the rest of the options except automatic kernel modules.

Would you like to enable VMware automatic kernel modules? [no] yes

You will see a bunch of output, when it’s done you need to reboot which you can do with this command.

sudo reboot

Now you have the VMware tools you can easily copy and paste text between your host machine and virtual test environment.

You can also drag and drop files between your virtual machine and host machine.

Enable Shared Folders in VMPlayer

The other benefit of the VMware tools is sharing a directory/folder on your host machine with your virtual machine so you can read and write to it as if it were a local folder.

To enable shared folders for your Debian virtual machine, select the virtual machine and click Edit virtual machine settings.

Click the Options tab and click Add under the Folders box

Browse to the folder on your host machine that you want to share.

Choose a Name so you can easily identify it on your virtual machine

Click Next

Make sure Enable this share is checked.

Choose the permissions, make it read only if you don’t want the files on your host machine to change.

Click Finish

You can repeat the process to create multiple shared folders, some can be read access while others can have read and write access. Do think about the permissions so that your virtual machine doesn’t unwittingly destroy important data on your host machine.

You will find your shared folders in /mnt/hgfs. You can list the directory contents like this

cd /mnt/hgfs ls

I see my htpcguides folder for testing the guides I create for this site.

[email protected]:/mnt/hgfs# ls htpcguides

Now clone your virtual machine (or any operating system) so you can keep your fully prepped Debian image with VMware tools, mapped shared folders and other software nice and clean – instead you will use an exact copy of the virtual machine to play around on.

Treat yo' self to a new gadget!

Comparison between VMware Workstation pro and VMware Workstation player

VMware Workstation Pro and VMware workstation player are the industry standard desktop virtualization for running multiple operating systems as virtual machine on a desktop, laptop or even in your tablet running with windows or linux. Lot of developers, IT professionals and system administrators uses workstation pro and workstation player to run multiple guest operating systems on the single PC or laptop t be more agile, highly productive and more secure. Workstation products allows us to test almost any operating system and application in the local desktop/PC and laptop without need of any additional hardware or servers. In this article, I am going to compare the features between VMware Workstation Pro and VMware Workstation Player. Similar to that, One of the  best comparison article is VMware vs Hyper-V

What is VMware Workstation Pro?

VMware Workstation Pro helps us to create completed isolated, secure virtual machines that encapsulate an operating system and its application. VMware virtualization layer maps the physical hardware resources to the virtual machine’s resources. Each virtual machine running on VMware workstation has its own CPU,memory disks and I/O devices. VMware workstation pro installs on top of the operating system running on your desktop, laptop or tablet running with windows or linux.

VMware Workstation Pro runs on standard x86-based hardware with 64-bit Intel and AMD processors and on 64-bit Windows or Linux host operating systems. VMware recommends 1.2 GB of available disk space for the Workstation pro installation. Additional hard disk space required for each virtual machine.

 

What is VMware Workstation Player?

VMware Workstation player installs on top of the operating system like any standard desktop application. Workstation player allows you to install new operating systems as virtual machines in a separate window. VMware Workstation Player (formerly known as Player Pro) is a desktop virtualization application that is available for free for personal use. A Commercial License can be applied to enable Workstation Player to run Restricted Virtual Machines created by VMware Workstation Pro and Fusion Pro.

Comparison between VMware Workstation Pro and VMware Workstation Player

Below table compares the features between the VMware workstation pro and VMware Workstation Player.

I hope this article helps us to understand the basic information between VMware workstation pro and VMware workstation player and also feature comparison between VMware workstation pro and VMware workstation player. Thanks for reading!!. Be social and share it in social media, if you feel worth sharing it.

VMware Player 2.5.3

VMware provides new support for the following guest operating system on Player 2.5.3:

* Ubuntu 9.04 is fully supported.

Following are the resolved issues in Player 2.5.3:

Security Fixes

* New: Third party library libpng updated to 1.2.35. Several flaws were discovered in the way the third-party libpng library handled uninitialized pointers. An attacker could create a PNG image file in such a way, that when loaded by an application linked to libpng, it could cause the application to crash or execute arbitrary code at the privilege level of the user running the application. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0040 to this issue.

Miscellaneous

* Sometimes the VMwareUser.exe process on a Windows guest uses 100 percent of the CPU after a drag and drop operation because the operation has not been terminated properly. * The Etoken encryption USB device from Alladin Systems is not recognized in the preboot environment for a Windows XP virtual machine. * Player virtual machines that were converted from ESX virtual machines might fail if the display is set to 8-bit color. * After installing and configuring VMware Tools on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, the sound does not work after restarting the guest. * On a Windows XP Service Pack 2 guest, the Hardware Wizard stops responding when installing Logitech QuickCAm Pro 9000. * Add enhanced SVGA and mouse drivers to support X.Org server version 1.6. * A WLK DiskStress test fails with data corruption error on LSI Logic virtual device. * Moving files between shared folders or mapped drives in Windows gueststhat point to the same directory on the host, cause the files to disappear. * Pressing any keys while grabbing (for example, Ctrl+g) or ungrabbing become stuck on Ubuntu 9.04 host. * Player has been updated to power on the latest Microsoft Virtual PC files (.vhd). VMware recommends that you create a copy or linked clone of the image. If you do not create a copy, you cannot run the original virtual machine in VPC after running it in Player, because the virtual hardware layer has been modified. * Performance is slow when opening a Shared Folder for the first time in a Player Windows guest. * Drag and drop stops working when color depth is set to 16-bit on a Player guest. * When moving a virtual machine from a later version of Player to a 2.5.x version of Player, the taskbar icon indicates that a more current version of VMware Tools is available and that VMware Tools should be updated. * NAT networking does not work on the latest Windows operating systems. * After uninstalling VMware Tools from an Ubuntu 8.10 guest, restart the guest to re-establish the netwok connection. * Default suspend and resume scripts do not activate or deactivate the network interfaces correctly in a 32-bit Ubuntu 9.04 guests.

VMware Player 3.1.1

# Resolved Issues

* In some cases upon starting a virtual machine, the USB arbitration service might fail to start on systems that do not have a device identified as USBFDO-0 and prevent the use of USB devices in the virtual machine. The following error message appears, "Host USB device connections disabled". For this release, the USB arbitration service is updated to start whenever a USB device exists even if no devices meet this criteria. * When a host system failure occurs during a virtual machine disk operation, attempting to power on the virtual machine or mount the virtual disk using the VMware Disk Mount utility causes the following error messages to appear, " Cannot open the disk... The specified virtual disk needs repair" and "Error reading volume information. Please select another disk file". There is no data lost during this process. VMware Player 3.1.1 fixes this issue and enables virtual machine operations to resume. * Mapping a virtual disk with multiple partitions to a drive on the host machine and enabling write access only succeeds if you are mounting the first partition. This update enables other partitions to be successfully mounted and accessible to the host operating system.

VMware Player 3.1.2

# Resolved Issues

* Security Fixes * VMware Player 3.x addresses an installer security issue - The VMware Player 3.x installer loads an index.htm file located in the current working directory on which VMware Player 3.x is being installed. This might enable attackers to display a malicious file if they manage to get their file onto the system prior to installation. - The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-3277 to this issue. * Third party libpng updated to version 1.2.44 - A buffer overflow condition in libpng is addressed that could potentially lead to code execution with the privileges of the application using libpng. Two potential denial of service issues are also addressed in the update. - The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2010-1205, CVE-2010-0205, and CVE-2010-2249 to these issues.

# Installation, Upgrade, and Compatibility * In some cases copying an index.html file into the same directory as the VMware Player 3.1.1 installer executable on Windows hosts might cause the VMware Player installer user interface to fail. * On Linux hosts, if the screen saver becomes active during the VMware Player software update process, the update might fail. * When downloading software updates via a slow Internet connection, you might receive a timeout error resulting in an unsuccessful download.

# Display * To improve user experience when using Unity mode on Windows Vista and Windows 7 virtual machines, VMware Player disables Aero when entering Unity mode and re-enables it when you exit Unity mode. To override the disabling of Aero, open the vmx configuration file and add unity.allowCompositingInGuest="TRUE". * Rebooting an Ubuntu 10.04 host after installing VMware Player, might cause the System Tools option under the Application menu to disappear. * On Linux hosts, the Cycle to Next/Previous open VM button might not appear consistently in the VMware Player full screen toolbar. * Attempting to power on a Windows 7 virtual machine named using non-ASCII characters on Ubuntu 10.04 hosts might cause display issues in the Unity Start menu. * Enabling Aero on hosts with Intel Integrated Graphics processing unit might cause display issues in a virtual machine. * On Windows hosts, you might experience some usability issues while attempting to interact with Fedora 13 virtual machine applications in Unity mode. * On Fedora 13 virtual machines, dragging guest applications along the edges of the guest display might cause the mouse functions to become unresponsive. * On Japanese version of Windows, using non-ASCII characters to name the host might cause the Start menu to not show in Unity mode.

# Miscellaneous * The DNS server information might not refresh when the virtual machine switches between multiple NICs, such as wired and wireless. Thus leading to a failure in looking up hosts with their DNS names when guest is using NAT. * If your host system has three parallel ports you might not be able map these ports non-sequentially. * On Ubuntu guests, the vmware-user component of VMware Tools might become unresponsive after Autologon is enabled on the guest and cause drag and drop or copy and paste operations to fail. * USB devices with vendor ID 0x1366 might be identified as being manufactured by Asahi KASEI instead of SEGGER. * Dragon Medical 10.1 from Nuance might not run with more than one core on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit guests. * On Windows 7 guests, you must run a New Hardware scan from the Device Manager menu for Logitech USB audio devices to be recognized. USB devices disconnected from the guest might still appear to be connected in the guest, and the guest might not allow you to reconnect them. * On some Windows guests, the volume control keys and a few other multimedia keys might not work in a virtual machine. * Error in NetBIOS forwarding in NAT leads to incorrect resolution of WINS name of the virtual machine. * On Linux hosts, launching a virtual machine application shortcut that includes either non-ASCII characters or a long path might not work on the first attempt.

VMware Player 3.1.3

# Resolved Issues - When you install VMware Player on an operating system that uses a post-2.6.34 Linux kernel, the vmmon module fails to compile. - The vmxnet and vsock guest modules fail to compile on operating systems that use post-2.6.32 Linux kernels. - When you install VMware Tools on an operating system that uses a post-2.6.34 Linux kernel, the vsock.ko module fails to build. - Unity mode does not work with an Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit guest operating system. - An unrecoverable error occurs when you select the Novell NetWare, Sun Solaris, or Other guest operating system type in the New Virtual Machine wizard.

# Software Updates - The known issues under this section is only applicable when upgrading from the VMware Player 3.1 release candidate to the current VMware Player 3.1 release. * Upgrading VMware Player on non-English versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 hosts might cause the vmUpdateLauncher.exe program to fail and trigger high CPU and memory usage.Workaround: In the %PROGRAMFILES%\VMware\VMware Player directory, replace the vmUpdateLauncher.exe file with the one available on VMware Communities.

# Installation, Upgrade, and Compatibility - The WDDM graphics driver included in the VMware Player 3.1 release is not compatible with VMware Player 3.0 and earlier releases. To run a virtual machine in an older version of VMware Player, revert to the previous version of the WDDM driver. * Workaround: Uninstall the current version of VMware Tools and install the previously released version. - On Windows hosts, if VMware applications or virtual machines are running under a different user, then the current user might not be able to upgrade VMware Player concurrently. - On Linux hosts, changes to the System proxy settings and Manual proxy settings might take effect after you restart VMware Player. - On Windows Server 2008 hosts, if you are not logged in as an Administrative user or your group policy disallows .msi installers, VMware Player and VMware Tools update might fail. - In some instances, using Easy Install to create a virtual machine with Kubuntu 10.04 might result in a blank screen after the virtual machine restarts for the first time. * Workaround: Restart the virtual machine. - Installing the Linux version of VMware Player in a directory where the path contains spaces, might cause the OVF Tool to launch incorrectly. > Workaround: To launch the OVF Tool, implement one of the following workarounds: * Install the Linux version of VMware Player in a directory path without spaces. * Edit line 23 of the ovftool script to contain the following command: "$OVFTOOL_BIN" "[email protected]". - On SUSE 11.2 and possibly other Linux distributions, the sudo command does not preserve the DISPLAY environment, which could cause the VMware Player installer user interface to fail. * Workaround: To preserve the DISPLAY environment add Defaults env_keep+="DISPLAY" to the /etc/sudoers file. - Installing VMware Player in a directory path that contains non-ASCII characters might cause an unsuccessful installation or cause guest application shortcuts to become unresponsive when you try to open them. * Workaround: Install VMware Player in a directory path containing only ASCII characters.

# Display - In some cases, entering Unity mode on Windows 7 virtual machines with Aero configured to use more than two monitors could disable migration of Unity windows between monitors. * Workaround: Exit and reenter Unity mode. - Exiting FIFA 08 game on Windows 7 guests and hosts with Aero enabled, might cause the desktop wallpaper to turn black. - Running OpenGL applications using full screen view across multiple displays on a Windows XP virtual machine might fail. - There are known issues with the ATI Linux driver 10.2. VMware recommends that you use ATI Linux driver 9.11 for the best 3D user experience. - On Fedora 13 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 virtual machines, Unity mode might not support maximizing virtual machine application windows. - When running Left 4 Dead application, transitioning the virtual machine between console view and full screen mode, might cause the application to display incorrectly. * Workaround: Restart the application to restore display.

# Miscellaneous - Running a virtual machine on a Linux host with grsecurity patches might cause the host to restart unexpectedly. - Running a script event as root to suspend Fedora 13 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Beta 2 guest operating systems might not suspend the guests. * Workaround: To suspend the Fedora 13 guest, apply a policy file greater than selinux-policy-3.7.19-57.fc13. - Attempting to restore a virtual machine snapshot on a host with Diskeeper 2010 installed might fail. * Workaround: Upgrade to Diskeeper 2010 version 14.0.898.0 or later. - On Ubuntu 10.04 hosts, powering on a virtual machine with ThinPrint enabled might fail with the error message "thnuclnt: relocation error: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libnss_files.so.2: symbol strcmp, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference". - Using fast user switching might cause unpredictable behavior in the Windows virtual machine, including problems with the mouse and with CPU usage. * Workaround: Allow the Windows guest operating system to start and reach an idle state before you log in to the first user account. - Printer device might not work on Ubuntu 10.04 hosts. * Workaround: Manually configure the network or USB printer to print from the virtual machine. - Converter does not support virtual disk size that exceeds 950GB. * Workaround: Change the disk size value to 950GB.

VMware Player 3.1.4

The following issues are resolved:

* In Player 3.1, the default main memory VA cache size (mainMem.vaCacheSize) for 32-bit Windows guests was reduced to accommodate 3D emulation memory requirements. However, the reduced value resulted in performance loss. For 3.1.4, the default main memory VA cache size has been be increased to 1000 MB and performance is improved. * Because Player failed to identify more than 10 USB host controllers in newer Windows guests, some USB devices did not appear in the Removable Devices menu. Now Player shows all USB devices in the Removable Devices menu as long as they are connected to the first identified 16 USB controllers. * The application vmware-modconfig UI could not start up in a KDE 4 session in a SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11 environment. * VMware Tools upgrade could be started by a non-administrator user from the VMware Tools Control Panel in a Windows guest. In this release, only administrator users can start VMware Tools upgrade from the VMware Tools Control Panel. To prevent non-administrator users from starting VMware Tools upgrade from a guest by using other applications, set isolation.tools.autoinstall.disable to TRUE in the virtual machine configuration (.vmx) file. * When a virtual machine running on a Windows host was used to access an Omron Industrial CP1L Programmable Logic Controller, Player generated an unrecoverable error. * When using NAT virtual networking on Windows hosts, the traceroute command did not work when used within virtual machines. * The Easy Install feature did not work for Fedora 14 guest operating systems. * During VMware Tools installation on a Fedora 14 64-bit guest operating system, the following warning message was generated while building the vsock module: case value '255' not in enumerated type 'socket_state'. * The Easy Install feature did not work for Red Hat Linux 6 guest operating systems. * The VMware Tools HGFS provider DLL caused a deadlock when making calls to the WNetAddConnection2 function from an application such as eEye Rentina in a Windows guest operating system. * There was no option to disable guest time sync when a host resumes. Now you can set time.synchronize.resume.host to FALSE in the virtual machine configuration (.vmx) file to disable guest time sync when a host resumes. * Setting a hidden attribute on a file in a shared folder from a Windows guest on a Linux host failed with an error. This problem caused applications such as SVN checkout to fail when checking out to shared folders on Linux hosts from Windows guests.
