VMware Tools SVGA driver fail to install on VM

You will see an error message “Setup failed to install the SVGA driver automatically. This driver will have to be installed manually“.

Even if you try to install the VM tools with Complete or Custom modes, you will end up with the above error. In order to resolve the issues, you can follow below workaround (just 3 simple steps).

Step 01: Try installing the VM tools by deselecting the Video Driver (Custom Installation)

Step 02: Installing the SVGA driver (the manual way). Make a copy of the VM drivers, by accessing the C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\Drivers path

Step 03: Manually install the VGA driver using the device manager console.

This should resolve the SVGA driver installation issue.

IAM vs IAT vs IASAE – Cyber Security Qualification Comparison

If you are working in the IT/Cybersecurity industry, you may come across these terms. Most probably, IAT and IAM. If you are thinking of working for a federal organization, this basic understanding is mandatory.

All those qualification frameworks are being established by the  US DoD (Department of Defense).

  • IAM – IAM stands for Information Assurance Management. This qualification is more focused on Management.
  • IAT – IAT stands for Information Assurance Technical. Meaning this is more focused on Technical.
  • IASAE – IASAE stands for Information Assurance System Architects and Engineers. This means this is more focused on IS Architecting.

All those Frameworks have different Levels, starting from Level 1 through Level 3. Level 1 is considered entry-level certifications, level 2 are intermediate, and level 3 is expert level.
