Jump to solution

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/87097

I followed the instructions per the KB.  I get the following error when I attempt to run the script:

vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar: binary operator expected
vRSLCM services jar does not exist

Currently running  vRSLCM 8.6.0.20

Check if you have more than one .jar file in that folder.

Move the older Jar file in other folder and run. it works.

But remember if your version 8.4.x, then the jar file older than 8.4.x should  be removed.

in my case, the older jar file was 8.1.1 (e.g.vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar)

With Great Regards,

The original KB has been updated to address this error.

Note: if you encounter the below error while executing the script rename the old version of vRSLCM SNAPSHOT.jar file and rerun the script./log4jfix.sh: line 4: [: vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar: binary operator expected
vRSLCM services jar does not exist

Steps to rename:

1.change directory to /var/lib/vrlcm

cd /var/lib/vrlcm
2. Run the below command to rename the file
mv vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT_old.jar

Having exactly the same issue.

Script immediately fails with the following;

./log4jfix.sh: line 4: [: vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar: binary operator expected
-bash: ./log4jfix.sh:: No such file or directory

Thank you, this worked for me, I also had two .jar files in /var/lib/vrlcm

Relocated vmlcm-service-8.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar to another folder and the script has run
