We need somebody who is familiar with VMware workstation. Our company does a lot of network testing and website crash testing. We need a script that will run from an excel or flat file, and will update each of our virtual machines with the following information:
1. modify the about:config file on Mozilla firefox to manually override the user agent. It needs to add a new String to the about:config file called "[url removed, login to view]" with the value set as the user agent in the spreadsheet
2. the machine's global LAN settings, change the proxy server and port
Ideally we would like to run a script and have it use the data in the Excel file (or CSV or flat file) and have it update all of the virtual machines with the data.
The host machines run on Windows 8, and all the guest machines run on Windows XP.
The final deliverable should be an executable file, and also a text tab delimited file. The .EXE file should take the information from the .TXT file and update our VMs.
