VMWARE error

Posted by root on Thursday Apr 18, 2013 Under Linux, Uncategorized, Windows
Unable to open kernel device "\\.\VMCIDev\VMX": Overlapped I/O operation is in progress. Did you reboot after installing VMware Player?
Module DevicePowerOn power on failed. 

The easy workaround is to simply set in the vmx-file of all your VMs

vmci0.present = "false"

You will never ever need VMCI as most of the users.

virt-viewer Remote Access

Posted by root on Friday Apr 22, 2011 Under Debian, MySql, PHP, Remote Access

Virt-viewer has the capability to run locally and connect to a remote server, either directly to the libvirt daemon, or via an SSH tunnel. To do the latter, the following command will work for KVM (qemu) based hypervisors:


virt-viewer --connect qemu+ssh://user@host.example.com/system vmnamehere

With the above, you’ll have to enter your SSH password twice – first to establish the connection to the hypervisor and secondly to establish a tunnel to the VM’s VNC/SPICE session – you’ll probably quickly decide to get some SSH keys/certs setup to prevent annoyance.
