How to Edit a vmx file offline using python

Postby Sasikiran » Thu Feb 28, 2013 5:10 am

Hi,

I am new to python, how can we edit a .vmx file offline or just simply a file containing the data in the below format.

My file sample.vmx contains data

pciBridge7.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort"
pciBridge7.functions = "8"
vmci0.present = "TRUE"
hpet0.present = "TRUE"
nvram = "testvmdk.nvram"
virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"
powerType.powerOff = "soft"
powerType.powerOn = "hard"


I need to update those values and the updated file should contains the data

pciBridge7.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort"
pciBridge7.functions = "8"
vmci0.present = "TRUE"
hpet0.present = "TRUE"
nvram = "testing.nvram"
virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"
powerType.poweroff='hard"
powerType.poweron="sof't"


Can anyone please help me in solving this problem

Thanks,
Sasikiran

Does some transformation function need to be applied, or are you just replacing the file? What do you mean "offline"?
