  • Can VMWare Serer logging help me...

    ...identify why a guest OS is rebooting?

    I've got a Windows Server 2003 host machine running VMWare Server 1.0.3. One of my Windows Server 2003 guests has rebooted for no apparent reason and I wonder if VMware Server can capture any data that'll help me track down the cause.

    Thanks.

    You can do 2 things:
    1. Check the Windows Event viewer to see if you have any reason why this is happening..
    2. Each vm has a vmware.log file in the Floder where your VM resides. Maybe you can find more info there.

      The vmware.log file doesn't seem to contain any useful information. That's why I was asking if VMWare can capture anything useful. The question was designed to get a reply like, "Yeah, you have to increase logging to medium." or something like that.

        You can enable debug logging on each VM configuration file
