Um Windows 8 in der VMware Workstation zu installieren hat Tim Bormann eine Super Anleitung erstellt.

Bei dieser Anleitung braucht man eigentlich nicht wirklich viel zu Sagen, außer Super gemacht Tim!

Bei der Installation von Windows 8 unter VMware Workstaion 8 bekommt man meistens einen Fehler Namens “Cannot Read the settings from the unattend answer file”

Um diesen Fehler zu Beseitigen macht man Folgendes:

1. Ausschalten der VM

2. In die Einstellungen der VM gehen

3. Die Haken unter Floppy deaktivieren

4. Unter Connection noch auf Auto detect stellen

5. VM neustarten und Windows 8 installieren

Viel Spaß!

Da man ja seit gestern Abend Windows 8 herunterladen kann um sich schon einmal ein Bild machen kann. Habe ich mir Gedacht, probieren wir es direkt mal aus mit VMware Workstation 8 aus. Und siehe da, es Funktioniert!

Anleitung zur Installation der Workstation und Windows 8 folgen!

VMware Workstation 8 ist erschienen… Ich habe jetzt letztens erst meinen Lizenzkey für die 7er Erhalten, als ich meinen VCP bestanden habe. Gerade Angefragt ob es nicht einen Kostenlose Upgrade Möglichkeit gibt.

Was ist neu in der Workstation 8?

Was beim Anschauen der Bilder direkt Auffällt, es sieht anders aus!

New User Interface

The Workstation user interface has been updated to include new menus, toolbars, and an improved preferences screen.

Installation Changes and Enhanced Keyboards

The hardware requirements to install this version of Workstation have changed. Workstation now requires a relatively modern 64-bit CPU. See Installation Requirements for details.

The keyboard filter driver is no longer installed by default. When the driver is not installed, the enhanced keyboard functionality is unavailable and you must press Ctrl-Alt-Ins instead of Ctrl-Alt-Del to send a Ctrl-Alt-Del keystroke to the guest. To use the enhanced keyboard functionality, you must perform a custom installation and select the component. If you select the component, you must reboot whenever you install or uninstall Workstation.

 

Was noch so cool ist, man kann sich nun direkt aus der Workstation mit einem ESX oder einem vCenter verbinden.

Remote Connections

In this version of Workstation, you are no longer constrained to working only with virtual machines that your computer has enough power to run. You can use the new Connect to Server feature to connect to remote hosts running Workstation, ESX 4.x and later, and VMware vCenter Server. After connecting to a remote host, all of the virtual machines that you have permission to access are displayed in the virtual machine library.

Virtual Hardware Improvements

This version of Workstation includes many hardware improvements. To try new hardware features, you must upgrade the hardware version of your virtual machine or create a new virtual machine that uses the latest virtual hardware version.

 

Upload to ESX/ESXi and vCenter Server

VMware OVF Tool is now integrated with Workstation so that you can upload a virtual machine from Workstation to a remote server running ESX, ESXi, or vCenter Server. After connecting to a remote server, you drag the virtual machine from the local My Computer section of the virtual machine library to the remote server. A wizard walks you through the process.

Shared Virtual Machines and AutoStart

You can share virtual machines with remote users in this version of Workstation. A shared virtual machine can be accessed remotely by other instances of Workstation. Workstation moves virtual machines to the shared virtual machines folder, where the VMware Host Agent service manages them. The VMware Host Agent service is used by other VMware products, including VMware Server and vSphere, and provides additional capabilities required by professional users. An extensive permissions interface lets you control the users who can access and use shared virtual machines.

You can use the new AutoStart feature to configure shared virtual machines to start with the host system. You can also configure AutoStart for shared virtual machines on remote hosts running Workstation and ESX 4.x and later.
