  • USB autoconnect VMX entry is getting removed when the USB device is disconnected from the VM

  • Workstation fails to launch on RHEL 6.8 host with kernel 2.6.32-642.el6.x86_64
  • On RHEL 6.8 host with kernel 2.6.32-642.el6.x86_64, Workstation fails to launch due to vmnet driver compilation error.
  • Wireless adapter cannot connect after Workstation is installed
  • Beginning with Windows 8, Microsoft implement a security policy (GPO) that prevents non-domain and domain simultaneous connections. When this GPO is enabled and Workstation is installed, Windows considers the virtual adapters that Workstation creates as physical connections. Therefore, the wireless connection cannot be established because Windows prefers the wired connection (virtual adapter) to wifi connections.
