Does anyone know if I could make a VMware VM stop working after 10 or so days? Is there a program I can use? We're currently sharing a VM with another department so we need it to stop when they need it. Appreciate the help.

    From the Console please run command like, vmware-cmd <file.vmx> stop, here is file.vmx means, the complete path to the configuration file. Or you can stop/ disable the VMware related service(s) from yast2 (for Suse Linux). Even you can use vsphere web client to edit the settings.

    This is likely something that can be automated on the host system or on the guest system. For the guest system, you could just set a shutdown command to execute at the specified time you wish. You could create a script on the host system to do the same thing.
