VMX settings recommended by Hardening Guide not in vmx files
Posted on 2014-10-24
I have something called the "vSphere 5.5 Security Hardening Guide" and it recommends that the following values be put into the individual Virtual Machine vmx files.
My question is: Why aren't these values in my current vms files at all? It's not that I have to check to see if the values are set as recommended, but the settings themselves don't exist in the vmx files.
Can I just add them in? Or is the fact that they are not there at all a problem?
The recommended settings:
isolation.tools.diskShrink.disable = "TRUE"
isolation.tools.diskWiper.disable = "TRUE"
vmci0.unrestricted = "FALSE"
isolation.device.connectable.disable = "TRUE"
RemoteDisplay.maxConnections = "2"
log.keepOld = "10"
log.rotateSize = "100000"
tools.setInfo.sizeLimit = "1048576"
