  • Booting a virtual machine automatically

    Hello Friends,

    There is the possibility of booting a virtual machine automatically in Windows XP.
    Sure you can count on colleagues' attention, thank you in advance.

      I think he's asking if you can make a VM start automatically when the host machine starts. AFAIK, you can't in VMWare Server. Might it be possible to script this using chron (AT?) in the ESX shell?

        Automatic VM startup and shutdown for host startup and shutdown has been a feature of VMware Server since the GSX days. You can only access this feature by the web based management interface or by editing the configuration files directly (much more complicated).

          The poster stated that he is running VMWare in XP, so I assumed he was running VMWare Server and not GSX or ESX. I don't think it's possible in VMWare Server, is that correct?

            VMWare server can auto start VM's, VMware workstation wont auto start VM's

            *be default, sure it can be done with some hacking

              I had stated in my reply that autostart and autoshutdown has been available in VMware Server since the GSX days. I provided VMware Server screenshots showcasing the feature.

              VM startup and shutodown is also available in ESX.
