i have a microsoft sbs 2008, and i am running sbs 2003 r2 through a program called vmware server..
what i am unable to do is when the server is restarted, get the program to start the vm automatically.
i manually have to logon and hit play on the server.. etc...

is there a way to get this to work automatically so that i dont need to do anything???

Hi

So the solution is that Tolomir already added.

With this, each time the host restarts the VMware Service will start the VM after the VMware Service is in the started state.

Hi

Honestly I dont have VMware Server to tested, I have all VMware versions, execpt that one :(

But the settings are ok, maybe in different versions the settings maybe different or other, but is the same.

I think the VM needs to be power off the set this(not sure)

Hi

That is for VMware tools actions.

Do you have VMware tools installed on the VM? If not you need to install this on the VM
