Written by r2d2. Posted in Linux

This Issue come from the Missing /etc/pam.d directory so to Solve is
Create it: mkdir /etc/pam.d


Before running VMware Tools for the first time, you need to configure it by
invoking the following command: “/usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl”. Do you want
this program to invoke the command for you now? [yes]

Unable to create symlink “/etc/pam.d/vmtoolsd” pointing to file

ESXi 6.5 – Memory limit doesn’t accept the negative value -1048576

Written by leif. Posted in ESX, Linux, Tips

Memory limit doesn’t accept the negative value -1048576 error

MacOS Sierra 10.12 and Safari 10.0. Reopening the ‘edit’ screen produces a Memory limit doesn’t accept the negative value -1048576 error. This was also in the previous OS X and Safari error. Reloading the page (cmd + R) fixes it, then you can reopen the edit screen and make changes.

I use Firefox instead, it´s easier.
