Automating VMware modules reinstall after Linux kernel upgrades

May 15, 2010

I found a nice blog post for you guys that run Linux systems within Vmware be it Server or ESX. After each kernel update from your distribution you need to manually recompile/reconfigure your Vmware kernel modules. What makes that even worse is that during that time you don’t have a network connection, so no ssh script magic if you’ve more than one Linux in a Vmware. But there is a solution for this problem, just take a look at this blog post.
