Yeh the first time I did it, it was kinda rough, but the second time was way easy and been running ever since, I run Fedora(for Nagios) and FreeBSD(DNS, MySQL replication etc) within it.
Back to the question(sorry OP not trying to steal thread) I asked at the beggining of this thread, why the any to any patch... I run a very new kernel > 2.6.15 usually and never had issues. Just asking...don't know if there is someting I am missing err.
@Chuck56 When you reboot, do you have to rerun vmware-config.pl or? I can't seem to have vmmon and the devices load, although they are present... just asking.

That happened to me on a couple of my early installs. It doesn't happen anymore. I don't remember the specific fix but my notes around that time had me focused on PAM by creating links to the VMWare PAM files ( pam_unix_acct.so & pam_unix_auth ) after adding the directory /lib/security. It also may have been the way I set up the init.d directories under rc.d instead of directly under etc.
and also I left the init.d files in UNTIL After I got it running. Securities I had a tough time with as I connect from other machines and outside of my network but I have it working =D -- Works after reboot too.
the above script looks promising too.
(I think I have all my steps documented if interested.)
@Micah If you want to post your steps that would be cool, I have vmware working just have to rerun configure after every reboot(which thankfully is not often), but I think with what you and Chuck56 have said it is a pam issue, I can figure it out over the long weekend.
I followed this guide the last time I set it up.
Sorry to repost to a couple week old thread. I had a chance to reconfigure vmware server on my desktop and this time, did everything under /etc/rc.d and this fixed the problem of needing to recompile after reboot.
I also had a chance to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.21 and indeed needed to run the any-to-any patch.
