Create a dmp file from VMWare snapshot file
Posted on 2014-11-25
I have a case open with Microsoft on a 2012 DC. They want a dmp file. I made a snapshot to include the VM memory. I ran the vmss2core tool but can not get the dmp file to create. I also tried the -W8 option with the same results.
I am able to create the vmss.core file using the -M option
