mount fails: server refused connections

I am running vmware-mount from different Linux machines, pointing to difference virtual centers.

In some cases I am running into failures with this message: Failed to open disk: The server refused connection (10041633552057)

I have no idea how it starts. In one case I suspect it started happening after a typo in the password. All subsequent attempts, with the right password, failed with the error above.

Sniffing on the network shows traffic going back and forth, implying the port is not closed.

Any hints would be appreciated.

Could you please check if the VM (in the VC inventory) you are pointing to is powered on by any chance, in which case the vmware-mount will fail.

When this happened the VM was powered off.
