vmware

Postby PBrimacombe » 2009/11/30 14:52:27

I upgraded to CentOS 5.4. In the past, after major upgrades I had to re-install NVIDIA and VMware. NVIDIA worked just fine. I downloaded and installed VMware-server-2.0.2 which seemed to work and then I ran vmware-config.pl which too seemed to work but the vmware command doesn't work. Firefox starts and the url is https://127.0.0.1:8333/ui/. I get a blank screen and the message loading. Can anybody help?

Some more stuff:
/var/log/vmware/hostd.log has alot of confusing messages:

Known bug. The first result from a google on
Code: Select all
5.4 vmware server site:centos.org
is the bug report which gives workarounds.

You can try one (or both) of the following:

(1) In the browser (assuming firefox), go to Edit->Advance-> Encryption->View Certificates->Servers. Then delete the certificate for the host you are accessing. When you attempt to connect next time, it will ask what to do with the certificate.

(2) On the host running vmware server, try restarting vmware-mgmt by service vmware-mgmt restart . Make sure you see:

VMware Server Host Agent (background) [ OK ]

[EDIT] The workaround referenced in pschaff's note should be applied first. The above tip can be tried if the problem persists after the fix is in place.
