    VMWare Windows Guest on Linux Host - start remotely from command line


    Hi folks
    I want to start a Windows guest (VMWare Wks) machine on a Linux Host michine - remotely -- the linux server is running "headless".

    I can logon from a remote Windows or Linux laptop via SSH - no problem but i'm confused as to start the VM. There is a command vmrun but if you've ever had the misfortune to look at Vmware's documentation you'll see that it's hopeless trying to understand it --at least for me.

    Any gurus here know the vmware command to start the VM via the command line on the linux box -- note SSH is working perfectly (also from Windows) so that part of the issue is not one at all.

    BTW if any of you are ever involved with writing documentation for a big organisation you should look at VMWare's -- it seems to me a classic text book case in how NOT to do it. !!

    Cheers
    jimbo

    GPU-Z what command line parameter ?

    Suggestion: /? (-?) and /help (-help) command-line arguments to show a list of all possible arguments in a small window. *Smile VMWare Windows Guest on Linux Host - start remotely from command line :)

    Guest OSs In VMWare Workstation 12 Crash or Freeze

    Im running VMWare on Windows and have a CentOS guest within it. So far CentOS seems pretty nice, though I wish it had the KDE interface to start with. Im gonna look into how to install the KDE desktop onto it. Im sure it can be done.
