Virtual PC not networking between virtual machine clones

Q: Virtual PC not networking between virtual machine clones

I've got a few machines on Virtual PC, copies of one base installed template, all running XP Pro.

I moved one of these virtual machines to another box, and now that virtual machine cannot talk to any other virtual machine on the original box, or the original host itself.

Any ideas why this is?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I just installed windows 8.1 pro on an MSI z97 pc mate motherboard with I5 3.3 ghz processor, 16 gb ddr3 1600 MHz ram, with embedded realtek pcie gbe NIC. I checked and found that hardware virtualization is enabled by default in the BIOS.

I tried to set up a virtual switch using the latest bios and drivers from MSI. I created a virtual switch choosing the external option and the share with host OS option. I then connected to the VM. No network connectivity on VM but host still worked.

I then used autopatcher to update windows 8.1 on the vm. I removed and reinstalled the virtual switch choosing external option and share with host OS option. Same conditions occurred.
And then I installed the latest NIC driver. Same problem - media disconnected.

I tried this process with the latest driver from the realtek website which was a couple years more up to date. I had such high hopes! Same problem.

I then used msconfig to prevent all non-Microsoft services from starting and rebooted. I removed and recreated the switch and I was still hoping for success. Same exact conditions occurred.

These are the conditions that occur whenever an external switch with host os sharing enabled is installed in between all of these troubleshooting steps. It looks exactly the same every time...

A:Remote desktop, Virtual Machine and Virtual Box

Hi Jason6161 Two of these words are closely related, while the other one isn't.Remote Desktop is often a reference to the "RDP" acronym, which means "Remote Desktop Protocol", a protocol used by Microsoft Windows systems to remotely connect to another Windows system (or even other OS now). There's a nice little article on Microsoft website about, I suggest you to give it a read. If there's something you don't understand in it, let me know and I'll explain it to you.Connect to another computer using Remote Desktop ConnectionA Virtual Machine is like the state name, a machine that doesn't exist physically, it only exists virtually inside a system. It's the emulation of a system inside another system. So you could for example have Windows 8.1 installed on your computer, but using a program, create a virtual machine running Windows XP in it. To put it simply, it's running an independant system (guest) inside a system (host).

It's what we call an "hypervisor". A program that allows you to create and manage virtual machines.

On the Video tab, be sure that Enable 3D acceleration and Enable 2d video acceleration are checked. Click OK to save the changes.Start the XP virtual machine and let it finish booting.

The funny thing is that VMWare does a better job than Virtual PC which is funny considering MS makes Vista and you would think they could emulate it better but no.

So that kind of gets to my next question? Anyone know any more virtual machines out there they themselves have tried and where please with. I'm thinking of forcing some of my users in my domain to go virtual and creating an image of their Harddisks on site. It's Sooooo much easier restoring a virtual system versus the real thing in every sense of the word.

Hi all
One should not DEFRAG SSD's.

However if one uses Virtual Machines quite a lot with data updates / changes then a Virtual Hard drive usually needs to be de-fragmented due to the way the Virtual I/O is mapped to the "Real File system" on the host machine.

Since defragmenting SSD's is NOT at all recommended does this imply that one should NOT use SSD's for Virtual Machines or Virtual Hard disks.

I've googled around but can't seem to find any refrences on this particular topic.

Using an SSD for a HOST OS is fine since the OS itself doesn't change much but a Virtual Machine is a different matter.

Cheers
jimbo

A:SSD use for Virtual Machine(s)

Actually you can defrag a SSD, and it does indeed help improve performance, because of compressing free space.

However:
It should not or does not need to be done often.
Also, defragmenters like the built in Win7 one can cause more harm than good.

Defragmenters like PerfectDisc, with the Consolodate option is perfectly safe for a SSD.
Although it states its defragmenting, all it is actually doing is compressing free space, which is fine.

Theres also DiskKeeper, but it requires an additional add-on called Hyperfast.
(I know little about this other than it supposedly works very well for SSDs and in much the same manner)

Obviously you wouldn't want to run it daily, but on occasion does help, and is fine.

Im only aware of these 2 that are safe to use w/SSDs. More so with PD11.


Sadly, I am not all that familiar with VMs.
But, would it possibly help to consolodate the system files, then set up your VM?

Sorry not much help.

You'd need to get yourself some virtualization software.
I use VirtualBox, but there are others available if you prefer.

You also need the installation disks for an Operating System, and a license to install them as though on a regular machine.

If the Operating System you install is 32 bit it will be able to run 16 bit software.
If the Operating System you install is 64 bit it won't be able to, just as your physical host OS cannot run such software.
If you install another family of OS onto the VM, such as Linux, you'll be able to run Linux software from within the Virtual machine but not Windows software.

Any more questions feel free to ask.
And Merry Christmas to you too.

A:Virtual Machine Help

The question you must first answer is whether you want to be able to use both OS's at the same time - - for that you'd need to use a Virtual Machine.
If you want to run them separately, then you could install them as dual-boot.

As far as Virtual Machines Hosts go, you'd probably be better with Oracle VirtualBox than Microsoft VPC2007 - (VPC isn't fully supported in Vista Home Premium). Other options include VMWare (which is arguably better than either).

Dual Booting Windows and Linux is not really a job for beginners - although there are many sites that will get you started - and I would suggest playing in a VM first even if you eventually elect a dual-boot.

Okay so I was wondering earlier. Is it possible, and if so is it easy enough, to use a Virtual Machine to test files for malware. For example, if you used VM Ware and install Windows or Linux and some security tools on it and tested files on there before using it on your actual PC. So you could determine whether or not a file was clean, and if it was then fair enough you can use it on your actual PC. So, is there any chance that if a file was infected, it could break out of the Virtual Machine and infect your actual PC, rather than just infecting the Virtual PC and you just wiping that and reverting back.

If this can be done, then is there a good free alternative to VM Ware for using Virtual Machines, because as far as I know, VM Ware isn't free and unfortunately I can't purchase it right now. Also, does anybody know of a tutorial or can write one themselves on using a Virtual Machine like VM Ware, for checking files for malware and infections using Virtual Machines. Preferably using Linux as I don't have a spare copy of Windows to use right now, however either will do.

Thanks for reading.

Hi,

A:Virtual Networking

Well the future is now as it's very common now with regards to the pervasiveness of virtualization. I'm not sure what exactly you're asking as to whether virtual networking is going to be more common or if virtualization in general is going to be more common.

With regards to network virtualization, there are various implementations out there. VMware has it's vSwitch which comes in a couple of flavors: standard and distributed. Microsoft has their own hypervisor which has their own take on a virtual switch. Same goes with Citrix and their XenServer hypervisor. While Cisco doesn't have their own hypervisor, they've built their own virtual switch plug in for VMware called the Nexus 1000v. Cisco essentially took their Catalyst 2900 series switch and virtualized it. Cisco also has a virtual version of their ASA firewall which loads up as a VM in VMware.

There are lots of plans from various vendors to start developing virtualized designs for their existing products. From the networking side, it allows a manufacturer to make a single product which can do multiple types of services more easily. You can deploy a box that does say routing, firewall, WAN acceleration using a single set of processors/ASICS without requiring specialized services cards to be installed with their own processors and ASICs. Going with a hypervisor concept which hosts various VMs running services can also lead to better uptime for network devices. A new patch/update comes out. D... Read more

I am trying to setup a domain environment in a VPC system.

Environment is pretty much set up, the only problem is I cannot seem to get the machines to ping the DC VPC.

Any ideas on what the network settings/IP Addresses should be?

My host PC has DHCP coming from my ADSL router.
I want my VPC's to be able to communicate to the internet but also internally in the VPC environment.

My DC VPC has DHCP.

What networking settings/configuration should I be doing here so I can successfully communicate the VPC's together?

So I purchased a domain from No-IP.com (say, mydomain.com).

Dynamic IP from ISP
Router IP schema: 192.168.1.XXX 255.255.255.0
VM Workstation IP schema: 192.168.100.XXX 255.255.255.0 (also using NAT)

My Router is 192.168.1.1
My desktop running VM Workstation is 192.168.1.110

I have MS Server 2008 running in VM Workstation as a DC. I have DNS installed on the DC. DNS suffix for the DC is "SVRDC". (ie svrdc.mydomain.com) 192.168.100.10
I have Windows 7 running XAMPP for a web server. The DNS suffix for this is "WWW". (ie www.mydomain.com) 192.168.100.20
I have Windows 7 running an FTP server. The DNS suffix is "FTP" (ie ftp.mydomain.com) 192.168.100.30

From my desktop PC (192.168.1.110), I can ping mydomain.com, www.mydomain.com, ftp.mydomain.com and it gives me the correct Dynamic IP address from my ISP.

From my Virtual Server, I am able to ping my Router (192.168.1.1 or any other site on the Internet)

My question is: How do I get it so that if someone goes to mydomain.com, they end up at WWW.mydomain.com or FTP.mydomain.com

Years ago, when cd players and burners were painfully slow
I used an app that emulated an optical drive on your hard
disk. It mounted a drive letter which appeared in My Computer
as a cdrom. (I can't remember the app's name!) That's the
one and only time I've used virtual software.

I've got a problem which might be resolved if I could copy
some freshly installed XP system files. Extracting them from
the installation disk won't work. I need to copy the files
after they're installed and make a few edits.

I was hoping I could create a virtual copy of XP. Installing a
"real" copy of XP just to get a few fresh system files seems
like killing a fly with a sledge hammer.

Normally, if you want to access any system file the best thing
to use is a boot disk or the Recovery Console. You can't copy,
move, or delete any locked file from within the Windows
environment. You can try with apps like Unlocker or CopyLock.
I wish these kind of apps were not available at all! The only
safe way to access a critical file is from a command prompt
before Windows starts.

The big question is, if I create a virtual XP how can I copy system
files? Even though the system is "synthetic" it's still going to act
like the real thing. You can't use a boot disk with a virtual system,
as far as I know.

The app I've looked at so far is VMware Player, only because it's
free. Is there a VM app that would behave enough like the rea... Read more

AVG Free will run fine on XP inside a VM. I would think any AV would run fine in a VM.

Hi There!

Start by checking here:

Since M$ lost it's legal battles with SUN, it's becoming very difficult to find the M$ VM downloads.

Two of my coworkers started having problem running a VM that has been working in the past. They can open the VM, but it would eventually freeze. This happens after they switched to new laptops. We all run the VM on Win 7. However, one difference is I am
running on a laptop with processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3340M CPU while the new laptops that my coworkers had received, the processor is AMD A10 PRO-7350B R6, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G. Is this AMD processor compatible with running Virtual PC? How do we check?
Thanks.
