    vmrun: Error: Malformed hostname parameter.

    yquirion Novice

       

      Dear all,

       

       

      I'm running VMware server 2.0 under Fedora Core 6 system. I'm having a problem with vmrun program. When I want to use it, i.e. show all vm running on the system, I'm getting that error:

       

       

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

       

       

      I'm unable to control any virtual machine using that command. I also suspecting that, when I shutdown the computer, the script doesn't make a clean shutdown of my VMs. Is somebody can help me on this?

       

       

      Thank you and best regards,
