    Web Service Not Available after upgrade from Beta 2 to RC 1

    tangential1 Lurker

      I've had beta 2 running just fine on a quad core box running Centos 4 (2.6.9-67.0.20.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Jun 26 08:14:55 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64). This weekend I upgraded the beta bits (which had stopped working) to RC 1.

       

      The upgrade appeared to go well, but after it completed whenever I log in to the WebUI I get the error "web service not available".

      When I try and use vmrun I also get errors.

       

        1. vmrun start WinXP.vmx*

      Error: Malformed hostname parameter.  For the given service provider, the hostname must be a URL, in the form https://<hostname>:<port>/sdk

       

       

      I'm not seeing any errors in /var/log/vmware/hostd.log.

       

      I'm getting errors in /var/vmware/webAccess/proxy.log:

      I've completely removed the old Beta install (including /etc/vmware and /var/log/vmware) and reinstalled. The reinstall went great, but I get the same result.

       

      IPv6 is disabled and iptables are clear. There is no firewall running and all of this worked fine under the beta 2 bits.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.
