iMessage on Mountain Lion VM

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a VM running Mountain Lion (10.8.2) hardware ver 9, 64 bit.

Everything works great with the exception of iMessage: once I try to enable it, it doesn't let me log in (it seems a server issue). Is Apple filtering us out?

 

Is anyone aware/experiencing the issue?

 

Regards

AxeL

Is there any way to change the Serial #? I have searched a bit and found nothing promising...

There is, and that used to fix it. But it seems that Apple has changed something in 10.8.2 which makes it verify from some other form instead. Possible via network adaptors which identify as VMware etc. Not too sure right now.

      Hi,

       

      I have a OSX 10.13.2 High Sierra guest running on Win7 pro.

      The guest is only used to configure idevice with Apple configurator2.

      guest and host as the latest itunes version and driver.

       

      I use an iPhone 6 and 6S and it's working perfectly, my problem started when I got 2 new iphone8+ (and later while writing the post, using an iPhone SE, same problem), on the host machine, no problem at all, they work and they are displayed in itunes.

      When I connect to guest, the loop start and I have to physically disconnect the usb cable for it to stop, trying the right-click on icon and connect/disconnect host... not working, it give me a unknown error.

       

      I was running Workstation Pro 12.5, so I decide to upgrade to 14.1.1, same problem.

      I tried on the Player 14, same problem... BUT, once, only once it work and I was able to see the device in Configurator and apply the profile that I needed.

      I also have a WinXP and a Win7 VM, and they can connect to the iphone8, so look like it's not an issue with the host/vmware application...

       

      VMTools is up to date

      Set to USB 2.0,

      Use the PC USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, with or without a USB hub (all those options work with the iphone 6/6s)

      The "usb.quirks.device0 = "0xvid:0xpid" config been tested and not working

      I delete all the files in c:\users\vmware\...

      I tested a new fresh guest machine from scratch, same result (so I can get narrow out a faulty .vmx file)

       

      The result is always the same... loop reconnect/disconnect on the guest machine, I hear the "dong" sound on Win7 when usb device is connect looping with the idevice sound when it connect...

       

      This is the log file for the iphone6s with the connection working

      And this is the iPhone8+ that doesn't work

      I highlighted the only difference between both.

       

      Any clue why ??

       

      My next project will be to test it on another PC in the office, fresh Workstation installation.

       

      Thanks

      This is the current version of VMware Tools for OS X from the VMware CDS repository for Fusion 10.1.1
       
      Please note: In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 onwards VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now, thanks to Zenith432 for the update.
       
      To check for the latest version visit http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/. The various VMware Tools downloads are located under the packages folder for each version.
       
      Instructions for extracting darwin.iso
      - Download the file above
      - Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar
      - darwin.iso is located in the "payload" folder

      So I just got Yosemite up and virtualized in ESXi.
       
      However, I am using workstation as a console like the KB says to do after 6.5.
       
      So the benefit of the workstation is that sound can come out if you add the adapter. This works just fine with a window$ VM. (BTW the documentation says it shouldn't work)
       
      In the yosemite VM it just produces a white-noise static when the sounds should be played.
       
      This tells me that it is a driver issue, and should be able to work in theory.
       
      However, does anyone have experience with VMWare workstation and the sound in OS X?
       
      Thanks,

      I'm trying to setup macOS High Sierra VM's so that I can develop software for Mac without having to reboot so often. I managed to get High Sierra working in VMware Fusion 10, and am now trying to get it to work in VMware Workstation Player 14 (unlocked). However, the installer boot never finishes. It gets as far as the Apple logo and a little movement in the progress bar, then loops back to a black screen, the VMware logo, and back at the Apple logo, forever.

      Screenshots:

      Any tips on how to fix this? I followed several different online tutorials, even patching my VMware with the unlocker, specifying `smc.version = "0"` in the VMX, and so on, but the darn VM still has trouble booting.
