    Re: vm machine failed to power on

    Well, I just wanted to report here that for me helped to modify the /etc/init.d/vmware script. I’ve added several lines before the line reading “start)”:
    ## code to fix creating file /etc/vmware/not_configured after system reboot
    ## start of fix
    for i in 0 1 2 8 11 12 13; do
    mknod /dev/vmnet$i c 119 $i > /dev/null 2>&1
    done
    mknod /dev/vmmon c 10 165 > /dev/null 2>&1
    ## end of fix

    (not my solution, found it on http://www.braincells.com/debian/2004/05/)

    Hope that helps.

    Martin

    Hi there.
    I have the same problem and I found several links that might interest you…

    In short, there is a file /etc/vmware/not_configured after reboot which is created somewhere in vmware script (though I don’t know why exactly). I haven’t tried the suggested solutions yet, but I think it is worth reading it. For me, removing the not_configured file is enough, so I could probably use some script to remove it. However, it doesn’t seem the right solution.
