Problem

I wanted  to share a certain folder in windows 2003 R2 SP2 server, but when I entered the folder’s location > properties , I didn’t see the Sharing tab. (as shown below)

Resolution

Go to start > run > Services.msc > Start the Server service . (as shown below)

In my case , the Server service was stopped due to lack of certain security patches in that server. In order to solve this problem for good , update the server using Windows Update. In order to solve the problem temporarily, start the Server service.

  • Network > Assign Network
  • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Add or Remove Device
  • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Modify Device Settings

Afterwards do the following:

  • Go to: Home > Hosts and Clusters, on the datacenter level add to the user Read only permissions with propagate. Below the datacenter level change all the objects into No Access with propagate.  
  • Go to: Home > VMs and Templates , on the datacenter level you don’t need to add anything because the permissions already existed from paragraph 1 actions. Below the datacenter level change all the objects into No Access with propagate except for the folder on which you want to grant the user permissions to add network adapter. On that folder give the permissions of the role we have just created.

  • Create a new Role in the vCenter server which will include the following:
  • Network > Assign Network
  • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Modify device settings
  • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Interaction > Device Connection

Afterwards from the vSphere client do the following:

  • Go to: Home > Networking and assign the role you have just created on each one of your network labels.
  • Go to: Home > VMs & Templates  and assign the  same role on the proper folder.
  • Go to: Home > Hosts and Clusters, on the datacenter level add to the user Read only permissions without marking propagate. Below the datacenter level change all the objects into No Access with propagate.

Problem                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I wanted to create a new windows XP template, but when I tried to install the operating system I occurred in the following error:

In order to solve that problem, I first checked what type of hard drive your machine has. (LSILogic/BusLogic)

As shown in the photo, windows XP imminently created with BUSLogic automatically.  

Solution       

  • Download the driver from here http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmscsi-1.2.0.4.flp
  • Attach the flp file to your windows XP VM.
  • Reset the virtual machine.
  • At the beginning of the installation press F6 for installing additional drivers.
  • After the screen for installing additional drivers appears, connect into the Floopy drive the proper SCSI/SAS driver. (SCSI for BusLogic and SAS for LSILogic).
  • Afterwards Press S key for specifying additional devices.
  • Make sure it recognizing the driver file you have attached to the floppy drive and press enter. At the end of this process, continue the installation as usual.
