Linux: Disable check disk at start up

E.g. Disable check disk for /dev/sda1

tune2fs -c 0 -i 0 /dev/sda1

Edit /etc/fstab and modify last field to 0 instead of 1 or 2

/dev/sda2                /                       ext3    defaults       1 0
/dev/sda1             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 0

VMware Server cannot run file larger than 2GB on NAS

If you put VMware guest file on NAS, you may face a problem “File is too large”.

You can put  the following option in vmx file to skip file size checking.

diskLib.sparseMaxFileSizeCheck= "false"
