    Problems with suspending the guest

    HorstKevin8 Lurker

      I use VMware Workstation Player 14.1.2 build-8497320 on Windows 10. The guest is a Fedora 28.

      When I want to suspend the guest, it doesn't work.


      I click "Suspend Guest" from the menu, confirm with "Yes" then the WMware window disappears for some time and pops up again. The VM is still running but Fedora lost its network connection.


      Here is the part of vmware.log related to this attempted suspend:


      2018-06-06T10:43:25.483+02:00| vmx| I125: VMXVmdbCbVmVmxExecState: Exec state change requested to state suspended without reset, soft, softOptionTimeout: 20000000.

      2018-06-06T10:43:55.490+02:00| vmx| I125: Tools: Changing running status: 2 => 1.

      Does anybody else experience this issue?

      What can I do to make it work again?


      I think (but I'm not sure) that this behavior started after upgrading to 14.1.2
