The Scripts Tab

Link to w_tools_scripts.png

Use the Scripts tab to enable, disable, and run scripts for the Suspend, Resume, Power On, and Power Off buttons.

Windows hosts: If the virtual machine is configured to use DHCP, the script executed when suspending a virtual machine releases the IP address of the virtual machine. The script executed when resuming a virtual machine renews the IP address of the virtual machine.

Linux hosts: The script executed when suspending a virtual machine stops networking for the virtual machine. The script executed when resuming a virtual machine starts networking for the virtual machine.

To run one of these scripts at some other time, select the script you want from the drop-down menu, then click Run Now.

To disable all scripts, deselect Use Scripts.

Note: Scripts cannot be run in Windows 95, NetWare, and FreeBSD guest operating systems.

Note: Scripts in Windows NT and Windows Me guest operating systems do not release and renew the IP address.
