This release of VMware Fusion addresses the following issues: Fusion addresses a privilege escalation vulnerability due to the way it allows configuring the system wide path. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the identifier CVE-2021-3980 to this issue.
USB devices are not recognized after the Mac wakes up from sleep mode – A USB device connected to guest OS is not recognized after the Mac woken up from sleep mode.
This issue is now resolved.
Unable to use a 2 TB USB drive in the guest OS after upgrading to Fusion 11.5.5 – 2 TB USB drives are not recognized in guest OS.
This issue is now resolved.
Unable to use the USB devices in macOS Mojave guest operating systems. – Unable to connect USB devices to macOS Mojave guest operating systems as they are not recognized.
This issue is now resolved.
User data in an anonymous volume is lost when the container is stopped – If a host directory is not mounted to an anonymous volume of a container, the user data in the anonymous volume is not persistent after the container is stopped.
This issue is now resolved.
Unable to access port forwarding on a NAT virtual machine, if the traffic is routed through the host IP stack on Big Sur hosts – On Big Sur hosts, if user configures NAT port forwarding in Fusion, the service running in the virtual machine is unavailable on the macOS host using localhost:exposedPort, hostIP:exposedPort, or 127.0.0.1:exposedPort; Port forwarding is also not accessible inside a NAT virtual machine using hostIP:exposedPort.
Workaround: Access the NAT port forwarding through another physical machine with Windows or macOS; or
access the NAT port forwarding from a bridged virtual machine running on the same Mac machine as the NAT virtual machine.
Virtual machine’s IP address must be changed for NAT port forwarding to work after upgrading Fusion on Big Sur hosts – If user configures NAT port forwarding on Fusion 11, the port forwarding may be not accessible after upgrading to Fusion 12 on Big Sur because the virtual machine’s IP address changes after upgrade.
Workaround: Change the IP address used for the port forwarding to the current IP address assigned to the virtual machine.
Users are unable to capture transfer packets in the same subnet of a virtual network inside a virtual machine – Virtual machine’s virtual interface doesn’t report packet exchanges between other virtual machines in the same subnet on Big Sur hosts.
Workaround: Use the virtual interface on the host to capture traffic information in the subnet. For example, use the interface bridge100 on macOS host to capture the traffic in the subnet.
If you are using multiple displays in Full Screen mode and the external display is unplugged and re-plugged, multiple full screen spaces will be created in the same display – The guest OS screen can’t be refreshed to the expected screen topology and the user is unable to interact with guest OS using keyboard and mouse after unplugging and re-plugging an external monitor.
Workaround: Go back to Single Window mode, then switch to Full Screen again.
Jumbo Frame can’t be enabled for NAT and Host-only virtual networks on Big Sur hosts – MTU configuration option is not available in the Fusion UI on Big Sur hosts.
- To enable jumbo frames on macOS host, navigate to System Preferences > Network > Advanced > Hardware > MTU.
- Change the virtual machine network to bridged mode to use the jumbo frame feature.
Can’t boot a macOS Big Sur virtual machine into Recovery mode or install macOS Big Sur from host Recovery – A virtual machine running macOS Big Sur is stuck in a reboot loop after attempting to boot the guest OS into Recovery by holding the Command+R key during boot. Attempting to create a new Big Sur virtual machine from the host’s Recovery partition results in the same failure.
To restore normal operation of an existing macOS Big Sur virtual machine, clear the virtual machine’s nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) by holding the Command+Option+P+R key combination.
After the easy install operation is complete, the VMware Tools is not installed in the guest operating system – Easy install will not install VMware tools in some guest operating systems including Windows 7, Windows server 2012 R2 and Windows server 2008 R2. This is because some specific Windows update packages need to be installed manually prior to VMware Tools installation.
Workaround: Perform the following steps after the guest operating system becomes ready:
- For Windows 7 and Windows server 2008 R2 Guest
- For Windows server 2012 R2 Guest
