VMware Troubleshooting Flow Chart – Thank @DuncanYB

This was shared by @DuncanYB earlier today and it is so awesome so I had to re-share.

Anyone that works with VMware can probably tell you that application vendors love to point the finger at the hypervisor whenever there is an issue. Invalid password error – oh it must be because you are running it in a VM (I kid you not this has happened to me – almost happened again today!).

Anyway, thanks Duncan this made my day!

    FYI original credit for this image goes to some anonymous guy called Thump241 in the #vmware channel on freenode. I created the google doc that was used to generate this image though. http://maxmahem.net/wp/vmware-troubleshooting-flowchart/. Feel free to use the image however you wish.
