    Can't shutdown Virtual Machine via VMrun

    VIdrift Novice

      I have a Windows Server 2003 as host, with VMware Server 2.0 (build 122956), with a Windows XP (SP3) installed as a virtual machine. I'm trying to shut down the image from the host, but I'm having no luck..

       

      The list command works fine:

       

       

       

      D:\VirtualMachines>"c:\program files\VMware\VMwareServer\vmrun.exe" -T server -h https://mymachine.domain.com:8333/sdk -u <MyUsername> -p <MyPassword> list

      Total running VMs: 1

      FTP_main/Windows XP Professional.vmx

       

       

       

      But when I try to shut down that machine:

       

       

       

      D:\VirtualMachines>"c:\program files\VMware\VMwareServer\vmrun.exe" -T server -h https://mymachine.domain.com:8333/sdk -u <MyUsername> -p <MyPassword> stop "[dstore] FTP_main/Windows XP Professional.vmx" soft

      Error: The virtual machine is not powered on: FTP_main/Windows XP Professional.vmx

       

      It

      is powered on, and I don't have a clue as to what is wrong here..

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Anybody have any tips here?
