VDDK can't connect to ESXi 6.5

Unable to get any version of VDDK to connect to ESXi 6.5.

Following are the outputs from VDDK 5.5.4 and 6.0.2.

Tried VDDK installed on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Similar command works fine with ESXi 5.5 & 6.0.

Any help would be appreciated.

‌No. I can't seem to get vixDiskLibSample in VDDK 6.5 to compile. Build process complains of missing boost headers.

Hi Jeremyb,

Did you resolve this issue? I am getting the same errors. Using VDDK 5.5.0 U2 to connect ESXi 6.5.

Thanks in Advance.

if you use vddk 6.5  , -thumb must be given ,just like :

./vixDiskLibSample  -info  -host 192.168.1.197 -user  administrator@vsphere.local  -password Jrsa1234/ -vm moref=vm-32 

-thumb FF:1D:14:0E:68:D2:22:50:50:5C:62:96:8D:29:06:42:B3:9F:DC:68  "[datastore1]\ Linux/vm-32_Linux_0.vmdk"

while, you can use this command get the  thumb string on linux :

echo -n | openssl s_client -connect 192.168.1.197:443 2>/dev/null | openssl x509 -noout -fingerprint -sha1

Hi, definitely use the SSL thumbprint parameter as WanHaiTao suggested and switch to VDDK 5.5.5U3. There's a few TLS related fixes in that release.

Cheers, Pavel
