   Good pointer. It got me to look at the permissions on /tmp/vmware-rshepard
and the log file inside it. Those were copied from the restored tape backup
and had owner.group of my Red Hat UID.GID. Not valid here. I changed those
to current values and VMware fires up.

   Now to resolve a write permission problem with the log file and I think I
should be good to go.

Many thanks,
