How to get the fastest virtual computers in your home
Hosting a virtual machine is one of the best ways to get more out of your computer, especially if you’re already using a virtual desktop.
Here are the steps you need to take to get it up and running fast.
Start by installing VMware.
Once you have that installed, open the VMware portal and log in to your account.
If you haven’t already, download and install VMware Player.
Next, go to the Home tab.
Click on the Home button and select the virtual machine you want to host.
In the Home section, click on the Create Virtual Machine button.
A window will pop up with a list of virtual machines that you can choose from.
Click the Create button, then click the OK button.
Once the Create virtual machine window is open, click Next.
In this window, you’ll be prompted to enter a name for your virtual machine.
If there is no name specified, click the Enter button and then click Next to continue.
In addition to the name you choose, you can enter a description and other information.
You can select the size of the virtual computer as well as the speed of the computer.
If it is a virtual server, click Finish.
This completes the virtual server configuration.
Next you’ll need to create the file system.
In VMware Player, click File System, then select the Virtual Server you want.
In a new window, click Create File System.
A new window will appear with several tabs.
Click File System on the right side of the window to create a new file system for your computer.
On the right-hand side, click New File System to start creating the file systems for your new virtual machine and your home computer.
Click New File on the left-hand tab.
On this new window you’ll see the file name and permissions.
Click Ok on the permission check box to create your virtual file system and then OK on the File Name check box.
Next select the Name and Description fields from the Name field.
Click Next on the description field.
In all the boxes, select the required permissions and click Ok.
Next click OK on all the other fields.
The Virtual File System window will open.
Click OK to continue the creation of the file.
You should see a new virtual file for your home machine.
You will now be able to connect to your virtual server from your computer or home computer using the same file system you created for your other virtual machine or home server.
You’ll need a file system that is up to date and you’ll also need a copy of your local file system, such as a copy from a local computer.
This new file will be called your home directory.
When you want your home folder to have a copy, open it in VMware Player and click on its name.
In your new home directory, you should see files in the folder you created earlier.
If they don’t, open them.
This should show you files that have changed since your last backup.
If so, click them.
You may need to right-click the file you want and select Properties.
Click Properties and then the Advanced tab.
Under the General tab, click Change File Type.
If the file type isn’t specified, select Copy and click OK.
This changes the file’s permissions and gives you access to the new file.
This is the time to create some folders for your data.
In ESXi, you need a folder for your system files, so go to System > Preferences and click New Folder.
The New Folder window should open.
In there, you must select the correct folder for the data you want stored in the new folder.
The default location for this folder is C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Virtual Machines.
If that isn’t enough, you might need to change the folder’s permissions as well.
In order to make your home folders more visible to the rest of your network, you will need to add the network name and the domain name to your local network.
In most cases, you already have these values set, so you just need to click Add to the right of the network names in the Network section of the Preferences pane.
Next in the Preferences section, select Advanced Settings.
Under Network, select Network Options.
Under Internet Names, select Internet Name Resolution.
Next scroll down to the Advanced section and click the Properties button.
In each of these settings, you may need additional information to make it easier for you to see and manage the files you want in your network.
Click Edit to save the changes.
This will update the Network Name and Domain Name settings in the preferences pane.
To save this change, click Save to close the Network Options window.
Next back in the Home Tab, click Add a new folder, then name your new folder and click Next in this window.
If everything went well, you now have a new Home folder and a new directory named yourhome.
When all the settings are complete, click
