Windows Server 2008 R2: Server Service Fails to Start (Error 67)

On a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2, the Server service may not start. In this scenario, the following event is logged in the System log: Log Name: System
Source: Service Control Manager
Date: 03/11/2009 13:54:29

Event ID: 7023 Task
Category: None
Level: Error


The Server service terminated with the following error: The network path was not found. Also, you receive the following error message if you try to manually start the Server service:
The network path was not found. CAUSE
This issue occurs because the system path variable (%path%) contains a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path. Note To view the system path variable, use the path command.
A system path that contains a UNC path may cause severe system problems and severe software problems. Therefore, a system path that contains a UNC path is unsupported.

To work around this issue, delete the UNC paths from the system path variable. If the UNC paths must be added to the environment variables, use the user path environment variable.

source link

VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine's guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine.
Without VMware Tools installed in your guest operating system, guest performance lacks important functionality.

Installing VMware Tools

Open Vmware Worstation or ESX console and Locate the VM you need to install VMware Tools to.
Right click the VM and choose "Tools", then select "Install VMware Tools".
It will connect the virtual CD-ROM device to the appropriate CD image containing the tools for your virtual machine.
Log into VMware Guest you need to install VMware Tools to.

Install the kernel-devel, gcc, dracut, make and perl packages using yum :
$ yum -y install kernel-devel gcc dracut make perl

Mount CD image with VMware Tools :
$ mkdir /mnt/cdrom
$ mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

Copy the archive with VMware Tools to temporary directory :
$ cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz /tmp

Uncompress the archive and run the installer :
$ tar -zxf /tmp/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz -C /tmp
$ /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib/ --default

Remove temporary files :
$ rm -f /tmp/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz
$ rm -rf /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib

Validating VMware Tools Installation

Use the command as follows to validate that VMware Tools is running :
$ initctl list | grep vmware-tools
vmware-tools start/running

To determine the vmware-tools version, run the command :
$ vmware-toolbox-cmd -v
