VMware is virtual machine software that provides a virtualized set of hardware (a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk adapters) to the guest operating system. VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the point of suspension. VMware's enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are bare-metal embedded Hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

When i was try to Vmigrate the VM from one host to another host but the VM failed with error "VMware vmotion fails with Error 195887167: Connection closed by remote host, possibly due to timeout".

But, I was able to Normal Vmotion another VM's migrated without any issues.

Restoring Oracle VM Virtual Box using Acronis True Image.

I recently went on a deleting spree to clean up my hard drive using scripts and fell afoul when I accidentally deleted a 124 GB folder containing all of my Oracle VM Virtual Box machines. A little concerned because the VM's are often active and running when the backups are taken, I fired up Acronis and restored the folder from the last Incremental backup. (Acronis True Image backs up my entire system drive using an incremental backup to the cloud each evening)

The result was perfect - After the restore, my VM's fired up without a problem as though nothing had happened.

This confirms my theory that it's fine to just backup the Host drive that contains the VM's, rather than running a separate backup in each VM. At least in the case of Oracle VM Virtual Box.

Note I've no idea if the result would be the same if using Windows's VM solution, but I thought I'd share the experience if one uses the Oracle VM solution.

Hope you find this account of my experience useful.

vSphere 5.5 and vSAN 5.5 End of General Support Reminder
Dear Valued Customer,

We would like to remind you that the End of General Support (EOGS) for VMware vSphere® 5.5 and vSAN™ 5.5 is September 19, 2018.
•      To maintain your full level of Support and Subscription Services, VMware recommends upgrading to vSphere 6.5. Note that by upgrading to vSphere 6.5 you not only get all the latest capabilities of vSphere but also the latest vSAN release and capabilities.
•      vCloud Suite 5 and vSphere with Operations Management™ (vSOM) customers running vSphere 5.5 are also recommended to upgrade to vSphere 6.5.
For more information on the benefits of upgrading and how to upgrade, visit the VMware vSphere Upgrade Center. VMware has extended general support for vSphere 6.5 to a full five years from date of release, which will end on November 15, 2021.

If you require assistance upgrading to a newer version of vSphere, VMware's vSphere Upgrade Service is available. This service delivers a comprehensive guide to upgrading your virtual infrastructure including recommendations for planning and testing the upgrade, the actual upgrade itself, validation guidance, and rollback procedures. For more information, contact your VMware account team, VMware Partner, or visit VMware Professional Services.

If you are unable to upgrade from vSphere 5.5 before EOGS and are active on Support and Subscription Services, you may purchase Extended Support in one-year increments for up to two years …

Installing VMware vSphere (ESXi) for the first time, and are using a branded server, e.g. IBM, Lenovo, DELL, Fujitsu etc update the firmware FIRST, and then head off and download the OEM version of ESXi, and install it! Do not use the VMware version!
