Optional parameters show a different behaviour. This type of parameters have a default setting - in this case that is. In practical terms this means the parameter is always defined.
So the ethernet virtual device is always "vlance" unless you define something else like. Many users are not aware of this - like the author of the guide you mentioned. A guide for changing the ethernet virtual device that tells you to find the line.
When ever you manually edit vmx-files make sure you do not define a parameter twice. .And by the way - as far as I know using this tricks to install MacOS as a VM is only considered legal if the ESXi runs on Apple hardware.
Recently, Google and Pivotal engineers collaborated on a performance study of RabbitMQ running on Google Compute Engine. For example, RabbitMQ can connect a Google Compute Engine app with a geographically separated analytics platform, provide an Enterprise Service Bus model within Google Compute Engine, or help scale an on-premise micro-services architecture by connecting to additional Google Compute Engine nodes. We provisioned a cluster of virtual machines, each with 8 vCPUs and 30GB of RAM in Google Compute Engine. 1 RabbitMQ Stats node (to run the RabbitMQ management statistics database without any queues). In front of the RabbitMQ cluster nodes sits a Google Compute Engine Load Balancer. This is very straightforward to do on Google Compute Engine.
PerfTest was simultaneously run on a set of Google Compute Engine virtual machines disjoint from the ones housing the RabbitMQ cluster nodes. Almost 13,000 simultaneous connections were made from PerfTest clients, each of which was configured to initially publish messages on two threads, while consuming on eight threads.
On such large clusters, there are a few key points to be kept in mind as systems are designed, built and scaled. First, RabbitMQ’s fundamental unit of parallelism for message delivery work is the queue.
Thus, by being prudent in how we distribute our publishers, relative to the queues to which their messages are ultimately destined, we can work around the potential bottleneck posed by a single queue. The RabbitMQ Tutorials demonstrate the construction of message fabrics supporting a variety of scenarios and routing schemes. Google Compute Engine allows one to quickly create performant and well provisioned RabbitMQ clusters, and run them at impressive scale, with greater ease than has previously been available to users.

So, you have somebody that you wanna chat with, but cannot because he/she/they primarily use the Apple iMessage app on their iDevice for all their texting and you're really out because you don't have a iDevice on hand, a Mac, or you have either of them and have a Windows computer; or have a dual boot of macOS/Windows (Hackintosh or Real Mac) and have your iMessage working on bare metal macOS but have no time to reboot just to talk to someone. • A macOS Virtual Machine (I recommend at least High Sierra, Mojave or Catalina, well once that comes out.
Now remember this is REAL Apple communication tools, running in macOS, inside a virtual machine. It's not a clickbait guide you'd see on thousands of search results claiming to get the real iMessage experience when it's just lame excuses to infect your computer with viruses and ransomware.
Now before we begin, you can't just run iMessage (or FaceTime) on the macOS Virtual Machine. If you try and sign in, it's not going to work and it'll either hang (or will show a error message), preventing you from using the service.
(You would've been smart enough to skip the Apple ID setup page during the First Boot Setup Wizard, or OOBE in Microsoft terms) Once the Virtual Machine is set up, with VMWare Tools installed, get the Clover Configurator and run it. Generate your serial number till your hands get sore, and make sure to check the Apple Support website if its invalid. With whatever you have from Clover Configurator, replace the "AAAAA" on Board-ID with the Board-ID from it (it begins with Mac), "BBBBBB" for hw.model, which is usually the SMBIOS, "CCCCC" for Serial Number generated.
Close Clover Configurator, shutdown the VM, and make sure no instances of VMWare Workstation/Player are running. Once you saved your .vmx, fire up your macOS Virtual Machine again, and log on to iMessage (or FaceTime). Happy texting, but do it safely, and make sure you aren't threatening anyone, using this method to stalk people or something.
However, you will face a little bit of issues while using it on VMware workstation especially. Those who install macOS Mojave on VMware or VirtualBox, while going through these way people often face many problems, and the common issues while using it on VMware such as iMessage, iCloud, and App Store don’t work properly or even it doesn’t open at all.
So, after researching I got a solid reason for that when you install any Mac OS X on Vmware Workstation the default system definition is not compatible with some of the devices that is why this issue occurs. Once you change the system definition to MacBook Pro or iMac 18.x then the apps might recognize the system and think it’s the real Apple device and it will work.
First of all, go to the macOS Mojave or the later version of the Mac OS X virtual machine and find the VMX File extension. The exact or default location is My Documents > Virtual Machines > macOS Mojave > macOS Mojave.vmx. Some common system definition. board-id = “Mac-FC02E91DDD3FA6A4” hw.model.reflectHost = “FALSE” hw.model = “iMac13,2” serialNumber.reflectHost = “FALSE” serialNumber = “C02H82KLDNCW” smbios.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.ROM = “3c0754a2f9be” iMac 14,2. board-id = “Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61” hw.model.reflectHost = “FALSE” hw.model = “iMac14,2” serialNumber.reflectHost = “FALSE” serialNumber = “C02KP7A9F8JC” smbios.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.ROM = “3c0754a2f9be” iMac 18,3. board-id = “Mac-BE088AF8C5EB4FA2” hw.model.reflectHost = “FALSE” hw.model = “iMac18,3” serialNumber.reflectHost = “FALSE” serialNumber = “C02TC4YKJ1GJ” smbios.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = “FALSE” efi.nvram.var.ROM = “3c0754a2f9be” MacBook Pro 14,3.
when you have added your system definition to the macOS Mojave VMX File after that save that and restart the virtual machine in which macOS Mojave is runnimg. Another Solution How to Fix macOS Mojave iMessage, iCloud, App Store on VMware. Then open clover configurator on the virtual machine in which macOS is installed.
Once you have selected the version of macOS (iMac 18,3, MacBook Pro 14,2) then Click on “Generate New”. So, you have to open macOS Mojave.vmx file then add the new serial number.
Troubleshooting Apps Opening on macOS Mojave. So, click Allow or Open Anyway button and open the application.
