I can not connect to the Appliance interface (Version 6.5) using root/password credentials knowing that I can connect directly via ssh without any problem.
in the log file we found the message bellow :
51728]ERROR:root:Structure('LocalizableMessage', dict(defaultMessage='The maximum number of sessions has been reached', args=om.vmware.applmgmt.admind.authenticate.max.session'))
According to the error message, It seems that we have reached a maximum number of sessions on the interface of the Appliance, is this the case? if so, how can this number be reset?
We have tried the following procedure without success: delete and recreate the derectory :/etc/applmgmt/appliance/session/, stop and restart the service: vami-lighttpd
Any idea please ?? thinks in advance.
We did not disable ipv4 anywhere, we have the same configuration on another site that works properly.
I have the same result if I execute the command on another site that works properly.
# netstat -anp |grep 5480
tcp6 0 0 :::5480 :::* LISTEN 1291/vami-lighttpd
just got out from a support session with VMware.
They have an internal kb article about it and the fix is very simple (move bogus web session aside and try again). I asked them to publish fix to external KB
