VMware Server Watchdog Timeouts on Host-Only Interface

Filed under: Operating Systems — Tags: — Greg Larkin @ 11:33 pm

Hi everyone,

I installed a bunch of security updates, new kernels, etc. to the VMware Server hosts and virtual machines tonight. One problem that has been dogging me for a while now is that one (and only one) of the VMs boots in a strange state and reports Ethernet watchdog timeouts on its host-only interface. The issue here is that it’s then unable to communicate with its name server, NFS server and other LAN resources.

After some different Google searches, I found a solution provided by Antonio Lorusso. I’ve made his changes to the VMware Server file in question, and I’ll keep an eye on the VMs as they auto-start after the next host server reboot. I expect that the timeouts will be a thing of the past. Thank you, Antonio!
