 += Notes, Tips & Tricks: VMWare
  
 +This is a notes page, extended with tips & tricks. This page is not really documentation,​ just stuff for me to remember. Sometimes things will get removed from these pages and turned into real documentation,​ sometimes not. You might find these notes to come in hand, maybe not. For me, it's just things I don't want to forget.

 += VMware voor Netware
 +
 +NIC: AMD PCNET32 "​Lance"​ NIC driver

 += Discover new disk on linux
 +After you've added a new disk to linux you can discover it by issuing '​rescan-scsi-bus.sh'​ as root:
 +<​code>​
 +# rescan-scsi-bus.sh
 +Host adapter 0 (mptspi) found.
 +Scanning SCSI subsystem for new devices
 +Scanning host 0 channels 0 for  SCSI target IDs  0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7, all LUNs
 +Scanning for device 0 0 0 0 ...
 +OLD: Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00

 += Time Drifting op Linux guests:
 +[[http://​support.novell.com/​docs/​tids/​solutions/​10100597.html|bron]]
 +
 +== Stap 1: NTP opzetten
 +Open ntp.conf en pas de volgende instellingen aan:
 +<​code>​
 +vi /​etc/​ntp.conf
 +server x.x.x.x prefer
 +tinker step 0
 +</​code>​
 +Stop, synchroniseer en start ntp:
 +  /​etc/​init.d/​ntpd stop
 +  ntpdate x.x.x.x (herhalen tot verschil kleiner is dan 1 seconde)
 +  /​etc/​init.d/​ntpd start
 +  ntpq -p (herhalen tot de reach op 377 staat)
 +== Stap 2: clock=pit
 +vi /​boot/​grub/​menu.lst
 +Voeg "​clock=pit"​ toe aan de linux kernel load line
 +of
 +vi /​etc/​lilo.conf
 +Voeg "​clock=pit"​ toe aan de "​append="​ line
 +/sbin/lilo
 +
 +== Stap 3: Misc.TimerHardPeriod (op ESX)
 +Zet deze naar 333 of 250
 +
 +== Stap 4: tools.syncTime
 +Zet tijdssynchronisatie met de host aan via of de VMware tools of de *.vmx config file.
 +
 +== Optionele extra stappen:
 +
 +== Stap 5: noapic nolapic nosmp
 +vi /​boot/​grub/​menu.lst
 +Voeg "​noapic nolapic nosmp" toe aan de linux kernel load line
 +
 +== Stap 6: NTP polling
 +vi /​etc/​ntp.conf
 +server x.x.x.x prefer minpoll 4 maxpoll 6 (getal omzetten naar seconden is kwadrant, dus 4=16 seconden en 6=36 seconden)
 +
 +== EXTRA TIJDCOMMANDO'​S:​
 +Hardwareklok synchroniseren met de systeemklok: ​
 +  hwclock --systohc
 +Hardwareklok bekijken: ​
 +  hwclock --show
 +
 += VMware algemeen:
 +
 +Indien het bootscherm te snel gaat, F2 is de toets om in de BIOS/CMOS te komen.
 +
 += VMware Server port forwarding
 +I needed to be able to authenticate through LDAP on a virtual from the production network. Of course, vmware server does not support reverse NAT, so I took my chances on port forwarding... and it worked:
 +{{vmwareserverportforwarding.jpg}} \\
 +Don't forget to press restart and apply when you've added port forwards.
 +
 += Force Removal of VMware Tools =
 +
 +To uninstall and re-install VMware Tools:

 +* Click Guest > Install/​Upgrade VMware Tools.
 +* Open a Console to the virtual machine and log into the guest operating system.
 +* Click Start > Run, type cmd, and click OK to open a command prompt in Windows.
 +* Change the drive to your CD-ROM drive (For example, D:\).
