comment How to expand the ext4 primary partition size in a VMware Player virtual disk?
@psusi - thanks. The VM is run with VMware Player, not VMware, so i am not sure where to tell it to boot from CD. Also, obviously, I need to boot the VM on which I currently work form the CD. The only time I remember pointing to the ISO was when creating the VM, and there everything was done automatically.

ok, it looks like I had to go all the way and shut down the machine, rather than just restart. Now the settings is preserved. Unfortunately, working remotely right now, the mouse wheel seem ineffective (same on the host machine). I'll check again when at the remote site and report the results.

Just tried the vmx file hack - and it doesn't seem to work. What I see is that when I do a restart, VMware erases the line I just added, as if it has a default file template that is being reset every time you start the machine.

Thanks. I will test the vmx line next time I restart the system (doesn't happen too often).

OK, this was apparently the problem. Now the clock is being updated as soon as the network connection is established. Thanks.
