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"

Vibe MS3211-SRD (Review)

This NAS product contains USB + eSATA + 10/100 LAN.

These multiple connections design makes Vibe MS3211-SRD sound Very attractive.

But after using it as NAS device, my comment is “very slow”.

While I am using 2 computers to access the NAS, it seems “not responding”.

It may relate to the CPU processing power of the device.

For the disk format, it supports FAT32 or XFS.

After using it, my final descision is using its eSATA only.

Don’t use it as NAS. Vvvvvvery slow !
