Looking in /var/log/vmware/hostd.log I see the following.
and in webAccess/proxy.log I see a number of the following messages.
java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out
I've disabled selinux and rebooted
I've disabled iptables firewall
Still no joy.
On boot all services appear to start and I can get responses from vmware-vim-cmd hostsvc/hostsummary
Once I try and login using the web the vmware-vim-cmd interface stops working as well.
This is becoming very frustrating, the VM engine seems to be in and running but no way to manage it. Is there a more reliable management interface foir this product?
We had some problems where the network gets killed after the vmware tools applcation starts up. This happens during initialization. I put a one liner in rc.local something like:
Sorry I am able to get on that system at the moment to give you a more definitive answer.
Hope this helps!
