Quick script  that I put together to Shutdown my VMware Server VM, copy it to a different spot, and then start it again. It  sends me an email in the end to let me know that the script ran. Using: vmrun.

PS: Create new user in VMWare Server for backup purposes with specific permissions. Then modify the script.

I just used VMWare-Converter to pull off from a physical machine the MS Win OS.
I did not experience any problems, however when I booted the OS in VMWare Server I wanted to setup static IP address for it, and I could not do it.
System complained that there is hidden network adapter with the same(original) IP address already set for different local network adapter.
Quick search on VMWare forums and I found the comment:

First open up a command prompt, then type in:


This should start up the device manager. Go into View->Show hidden devices. That should show the shadowed out nic card that needs to be removed in the Network Adapters area.

The solution worked like a charm 🙂 and now I am up and running.
