VMware vSPhere and default screen resolution for VM's

Hi all,

 

Is any way to set VMware vSPhere remote console default resolution, so that started to run tests (using TestExecute) will not be affected by changed resolution during (re-)connection to VMRC? It would be great that reconnection will not change the screen resolution.

I use vSPhere 6.7 and VMware Tool 11265 (Current).

 

Thanks,

Kristina

Hi Kristina,

 

First update your VMware tools to the last version.

Then edit the .vmx file attached to your VM and add this at the end :

guestInfo.svga.wddm.modeset="FALSE"
guestInfo.svga.wddm.modesetCCD="FALSE"
guestInfo.svga.wddm.modesetLegacySingle="FALSE"
guestInfo.svga.wddm.modesetLegacyMulti="FALSE"

this will let VRMC keep the resolution you set

Thank you @m_essaid , your solution helped. I just wonder if it is enough to use just one option, as https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/53572 doesn't mention any others. So I will try to test if that changes anything, but thank you for your solution.

Kristina
