Hello guys, I'm wondering if anyone can help me out on something. I'm trying to script some VMWare processes for a bunch of VM's, and it seems like FreeBSD may be a special case here. I've been told by some VMWare techs that guest operations are not supported on FreeBSD at this time. These guest operations usually run in my script on my host machine, to the guest VM via the vmware-guestd daemon on the guest OS. It it perfectly possible to install this daemon and keep it running. However, whenever I try to run any operation from my script, such as VMRunProgramInGuest, or VMLoginInGuest, I get the error message: "Authentication failure or insufficient permissions in guest operating system"
So, my obvious question to guys is 1) Have you ever seen these types of guest operations run on a FreeBSD guest VM in VMWare, and 2) if so, do you know how they got this working? =) I went the extra mile here and tried the Linux emulation capabilities, and then installed the vmware-guestd daemon by hand, but amazingly I still get the same exact error when doing this. (The steps that I took for manual installation, if anyone is curious, are *roughly* summed up on this page for OpenBSD....when running the normal vmware-config.pl script for Linux on FreeBSD, that script bails when it can't find lsmod. Anyway, link: http://www.openbsd-wiki.org/index.php?title=HowTo_install_VMWare_tools=)....these get Linux emulation gets vmware-guestd running just fine, but like I said, same error.) _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
