About

My name is Bennett Norton.  I’m a husband, a father of 4 and a technology enthusiast who loves to use technology to enhance my life.

When it comes to using Apple products, by no means am I the guy that was coding on the Apple II long before Apple was popular.  Nevertheless, I have been in IT for 13 years and have been using a Mac at work and at home all the while.

Currently, I’m employed at LANDESK Software.  I’ve been fortunate enough to experience all aspects of the business since hiring on in 2007.  I’ve spent time in support, professional services, product management and in pre-sales.

When not working, I spend my time with my wife and kids.

  1. Sorry if this is duplicate, Bennett, but I don’t see any sign that my comment was posted on your VMWare Fusion scripting item. Which is exactly what I need! Here’s what I tried to post (using a throwaway email address, just out of habit):

    Thanks so much for posting this. I’m *almost* there. Any chance you can see what’s wrong?

    The script can’t seem to find the vmrun executable, even though I think I’ve set the path correctly. I confirmed it’s in the same place you specify — by doing Show Package Contends in the finder and and dragging vmrun to a Terminal window.

    I’m running OS X 10.10.5 and VMWare Fusion 8.1.0.

    ** Here’s how I edited the top of your script: **

    # Set Paths to My VMs
    declare -a arrayPathForVMs=(“/Users/red/Desktop/Virtual\ Machines/OS\ X\ Everyday.vmwarevm/OS\ X\ Everyday.vmx” “/Users/red/Desktop/Virtual\ Machines/OS\ X\ Yellow.vmwarevm/OS\ X\ Yellow.vmx” “/Users/red/Desktop/Virtual\ Machines/OS\ X\ Net.vmwarevm/OS\ X\ Net.vmx”)

    # Set Path to CLI vmrun command
    vmrunPath=”/Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun”
    setScriptPath=”$HOME”

    ** Here’s where I stored your script **

    /Users/red/_bash_scripts/vm-ops.sh
    (when that didn’t work I tried storing the script in $HOME but that didn’t work either)

    Here’s the result of choosing option 6 when your script runs:

    Suspending your VMs…
    Suspending /Users/red/Desktop/Virtual\ Machines/OS\ X\ Everyday.vmwarevm/OS\ X\ Everyday.vmx
    /Users/red/vm-ops.sh: line 127: /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun: No such file or directory
    Suspending /Users/red/Desktop/Virtual\ Machines/OS\ X\ Yellow.vmwarevm/OS\ X\ Yellow.vmx
    /Users/red/vm-ops.sh: line 127: /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun: No such file or directory
    Suspending /Users/red/Desktop/Virtual\ Machines/OS\ X\ Net.vmwarevm/OS\ X\ Net.vmx
    /Users/red/vm-ops.sh: line 127: /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun: No such file or directory

    What did I do wrong?
