    Management interface not working

    srichter Lurker

      My install was installed properly and was working well as in all the sudden the management interface quit responding. So the first thing I did was reconfigure by running vmware-config.pl . The management interface continue to stay offline, so then I uninstalled and reinstalled. Once again that no facts to manage interface still did not work. So I uninstalled once again this time being careful to remove any old VMware files on the system.  I have just reinstalled with following results:

            Every time  I start up my Linux box, I cannot connect to http://localhost to get at the web UI.  I first have to 'service vmware restart' and then it works.  Since I'm chasing other issues with 2RC1, I have not looked into why this part of it is not working.
