I am trying to configure the vMA for CIM Operations. I am trying to connect to it from HDS Device Manager 7.
When I try to run the following command sudo /etc/vmware/vmware-smis-setup.pl I get the following error:
Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/libvmatargetlib_perl.so' for module vmatargetlib_perl: libtypes.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line 230.
The reason you're seeing the errors is in regards to the vi-fastpass Perl module being loaded "use VMware::VmaTargetLib;", this module has been changed by VMware from vMA 4.0 to vMA 4.1 and apparently it was not well QA'ed even in VMware's own scripts. I had to find this out the hard way as any scripts leveraging this previous module would break. I haven't looked at the details of the CIM script, but to get pass the initial error you should try the following: "use VMware::VIFPLib;"
You may still hit other issues depending on what functions the script is using out of the vi-fastpass modules. Kind of odd that configuring CIM would leverage vi-fastpass ... but then again I've not really looked at the CIM stuff for vMA
@DSTAVERT Thank you helpful discussion.
@lamw I tried to change the library but it still get a error.
I tried to run the .sh which creates a environment variable and calls the .pl script and then I am allowed to go throug the wizard and dont get any errors, I dont know if everything is ok but I will test it and post the result later.
