httpd.vmware missing

\[root@vmserver01 etc]# service httpd.vmware status

httpd.vmware: unrecognized service

httpd.vmware doesn't exist in /etc/init.d

How can I load it? IM trying to use ESX ranger for backups and their docs point to this, but im not sure how to get this service working.

If your ESX host is 3.0 then you should use

service vmware-webAccess restart

Still the same result ...

\[root@vmserver01 root]# service vmware-webAccess restart

Stopping vmware-webAccess:

Starting vmware-webAccess:

\[root@vmserver01 root]# service http.vmware staus

you'll want to run the below command and the service names are case sensitive. This is the new service name with 3.0.

service vmware-webAccess status

Looks like it is running OK. Are you able to login to the web interface and get a listing of all VMs and their states? What error are you getting with esxranger and which version are you using?

I can login to the web interface and get a list of VM's.

esx Ranger v1.75.2385

There's no error, when trying to get a list of VM's it just says "Working, Please Wait" but never gives a result. (I let it run for 30 min).

I uninstalled esx ranger standard and loaded esx ranger pro and it works like a charm. I don't understand why, but its working now.

Did you install a newer version? ESX 3.0 support wasn't added until version 2.0
