What do you see in the log files under c:\programdata\vmware\vdm when you run this?
I can find this message in log,
2013-03-08T15:16:33.881+08:00 ERROR (134C-038C) <Thread-583> [jadminservice] JAdmin service invocation failed
That log line should be preceded by more detailed information in the debug log, can you post that too?
It's very old post but I'm getting exactly same error. I found under logs something like this:
2020-03-02T14:06:18.247-06:00 DEBUG (141C-16F0) <Thread-1110520> [jadminservice] JAdmin service invocation failed com.vmware.vdi.logger.Logger.debug(Logger.java:44)
2020-03-02T14:06:18.247-06:00 ERROR (141C-16F0) <Thread-1110520> [jadminservice] JAdmin service invocation failed
I'm totally clueless. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I use Get-Monitor to inventory all stuff from environment.
