VDDK6 installation


VDDK6 doesn't come with an install script. I'm wondering how to install it properly. I did the best I could but after installing it, I couldn't even run the sample program


# ./vix-disklib-sample -info -host esx.blah.com -user root -password vmware "[raid] ub6/ub6_1.vmdk"


VixDiskLib: Invalid configuration file parameter. Failed to read configuration file.


Error:  3 One of the parameters was invalid


I assume that this sample program is good so either the installation or my invocation of the sample is wrong. 


The same invocation works for VDDK5.5.

root@cent7buildv6 diskLib]# ./vix-disklib-sample -info -host maytag.zmanda.com -user root -password vmware "[maytag-raid] ub6/ub6_1.vmdk"



VixDiskLib: Invalid configuration file parameter. Failed to read configuration file.



Error:  3 One of the parameters was invalid

This probalby because you did not provide a SSL thumbprint. From shitty vddk 6.0 it is mandatory.

That was exactly what happened. Thanks for replying!

the error message "One of the parameters was invalid" is a joke.

StrongLiang,

How did you end up providing the required SSL thumbprint argument?

I'm having the same kind of issue like yours.

How did you manage to solve it?

Any clues are appreciated.
