This week is my vmware week. i installed three FreeBSD in three VMs and tested with different network connection. VMware is really interesting. It’s a real OS emulation. Everything can be done with VM like what we can do with real machine. VMware DISK image creating (VMDK file), changing configuration on .VMX file and testing etc…
Yesterday I faced one trouble with test in my VMs. Then command “vmware-cmd” has several functionalites. We can control almost everythings from command line using vmware-cmd command like registering/unregistering VMs, starting/stopping/suspending/resetting VMs, changing the network configuratin and other configuratin parameters by setconfig command options etc..
I tried to change the network topology and make two routers conned to same network. When I ran the command:
#Vmware-cmd c:\virtual machines\BSD3\FreeBSD.vmx setconfig Ethernet1.vnet VMnet3
Setconfig (Ethernet1.vnet VMnet3)=1
It seems that it changed the network to VMnet3
#Vmware-cmd c:\virtual machines\BSD3\FreeBSD.vmx getconfig Ethernet1.vnet
Ethernet1.vnet = Vmnet3
