  • VMware Workstation 10 wont allow more than 50 VMs

    Hello,
    When i try to power on more than 50 VMs it gives internal error, i though the limit for VMware was 64 guests. I have tried this on several servers so the hardware may not be the problem. The host is Win7 and the guest is Win7 too:

    Xeon 10 cores 2670 v2
    Asus Z9PA-U8
    64 GB DDR3 ECC Kingston
    Seagate Pro 250GB
    HD 7950
    Seagate gold 750 W


    Is there any way to run more than 50 VMs on VMware Workstation 10?

    Regards.

    Weird question maybe, but isn't ESXi a better choice?

      Hello,
      I need 3D, so the GPU would be too expensive if i used ESXi.

        I managed to run 60 VMs simultaneously, so 50 shouldn't be too much.

            With the same hardware and software sometimes i manage 50+ sometimes i dont, not sure what is the deal. It just says internal error, sometimes got the "failed to get exclusive lock on the configuration file vmware" sometimes other stuff.

              Am I seeing this right and that you are trying to run 50 VM's on a single 250GB SSD??
