    Error after ESXi 5 update 1 upgrade on free version

    JazzManG Lurker

      Has any one else gotten ghettoVCBg2 to run properly after upgrade to ESXi 5u1 via vMA 5 when it is the free version?

       

      I have a couple of free machine and they are the only ones having issues. My licensed production verson work fine.

       

      The error I get on the free machines is as follows:

       

      Can't get vim_service - the session object is uninitialized or not logged in at /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/VMware/VICommon.pm line 1654
      Perl exited with active threads:
              1 running and unjoined
              0 finished and unjoined
              0 running and detached

       

      I've search around and tried various solutions to simular errors (like adding the Carp debug) but nothing works.

       

      None of post update 1 patches have fixed this either.

       

      ghettoVCB runs just fine on the free servers however.

       

      So I'm curious if any else has seen this issue?

          Oh, and before the update 1, the ghettoVCB2 ran fine, only aftewards did the issue appear.

            I guess the reason for this is that ghettoVCB2 was built for the paid editions which allow API write access.

            There were some editions which did not restrict this access, as you can see in "ESX/ESXi Version Support Table" at http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-9843. The initial ESXi 5.0 version is/was one of them, whereas Update 1 is more restrictive again.

              Yeah, I believe you are right.

               

              I can still do backup of the ESXi server setting (i.e. vicfg-cfgbackup) just fine, but I believe that only requires only read access.

               

              So I've moved on to MKSBackup with ghettoVCB for my free servers
              http://www.magikmon.com/mksbackup/ghettovcb.en.html

               

              Fortunatly they are all just development/test servers and not in production.

              Too bad, the vMA solution is just so easy to deploy and intergrate.
