Tips for managing and taking care of your VMware machines

Last time we talked about how to best optimize your VM for a smooth work experience. This time we’ll talk about working with VM. These tips will help you avoid loss of time and grief in losing a virtual machine or critical data you have on your partitions. They will make your job easier in a day to day work.

Tip #1

Do not use fdisk or a similar utility to create partition tables, even if it is in the guest operating system on remote VMware ESX servers while you are in the virtual machine on the console. After you add a virtual machine disk by using one or more partitions on a physical disk, never modify the partition tables by running fdisk in the guest operating system.
