VMware 3.5 and Updates
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:35:01 pm »
So I have never updated my vmware server, and I decided to today, so after hours of troubleshooting, I finally got it working. Here is my process.

Shut down all of your VM servers.

Under configuration>time and date
Make sure you've stopped the NTP service, and set the date to anything before July 2011. EX: Jan, 1, 2011

Reboot the server

Now open VMware Infrastructure Update service
If you are running anything newer than XP, you'll need to run it as an administrator. Right click and click run as administrator.

Now you can use this guide.  To update your server.

So why did we have to change the time? Well updates don't work past July 2011. So once the update is complete, change your time back to the NTP setting or whatever.

I am the admin. That is all.
