Unable to change the power state of the virtual machine: internal error.
This is an error.
At first I thought there was a problem with the vmware settings, but I finally found the answer on the Internet:
I encountered this problem when running a Vmware workstation under Ubuntu Jaunty. I get an error when shutting down the machine via an NX session.
It’s the result of a zombie ‘vmware-vmx’ process running. All you need to do is kill the process. This command sends ‘signal 9’ to the process. When sent to the process, SIGKILL causes the process to terminate immediately. Contrary to SIGTERM and SIGINT, this signal cannot be captured or ignored. More info:More sigkill info.
After that, I was able to start the virtual machine without any problems.
