  • How can we tell if we’re running VMware virtual machine?

    We're using a VMware ESX server but we also have Red Hat VMs running on that very same server. We're looking for a way to programatically test if we're running in a VM. Ideally, we'd like to know how to do it from Perl.

    Our team is using a Mac OS X and we're trying to figure out if it's possible to "clone" a virtual machine using VMware Fusion. We tried using the Finder to copy the VM's package structure but the problem was that the copy didn't appear in the VM library. What should we do?
