No VMware Tools? Consider Using Reservations.

I’ve come across some systems that for one reason or another can’t run VMware Tools. This can be due to support reasons, an operating system that doesn’t officially have VMware support from the version of the hypervisor or family of operating systems, an appliance that is designed to run on a physical system but doesn’t offer virtualization support, or it simply won’t install on that system without something else going awry. (While this does not happen frequently, usually the vendor or application owner’s response is "The application isn’t supported yet with virtualization" or worse, I have to explain what virtualization is.)

This is the theme of my latest Everyday Virtualization blog post online at Virtualization Review. Read the entire post here.
