Autostart VMware Workstation Virtual Machines


Firstly, put VMware Workstation on autostart, and then use this small bash script to autostart your machines.
The script will parse your inventory file usually located in ~/.vmware/. It includes your config and paths to the .vmx-file that the script will use to start up the machine.
So change the INVENTORY variable to what your path is and just add put this line into your crontab
@reboot /home/USERNAME/scripts/vm-startup.sh
