After installing VMware Fusion 4.0.1 some of my custom settings were lost, again. The new version has completely changed where it stores its configurations. So, here are some updates.
The former directory, once used for dhcp, nat and other configurations:
/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion
Seems to be only a container for license keys.
The new location is:
But, this location no longer contains the scripts (boot.sh) to restart any networking changes you have made. The scripts are now stored within the main VMWare Fusion application directory (OS X Appellation bundle ‘VMware Fusion.app’). If you installed VMware Fusion in the normal ‘/Applications’ directory, the file path to the scripts is:
It also seems that the ‘boot.sh’ script necessary to restart any services (NAT for example) that have changed is no longer there. The script I used is called ‘services.sh’. To restart the services you must issue two commands:
sudo "/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/services.sh" --stop sudo "/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/services.sh" --start
