Hi everybody,
i'm recently using vmware on my windows xp sp2
i install the software and installe a linux CENTOS OS.
all works pretty fine but when i restart my PC i can't run the VMWARE again.
when i click the button to start the menu to start the virtual machine this links opens a internet windows with this url: https://tavonotebook:8333/ui/ (the same i use the first time)
i get "The page cannot be displayed" on the internet page.
i've been check some pages and forums around the internet and i found this error on my tomcat ( i think thats the problem)
in the file: C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Server\tomcat\logs\catalina.2008-10-28.log (i'm posting the file.)
i have the IIS installed and working ( but the first time i test both and both works at the same time good)
anyway i already try using this https://127.0.0.1:8333/ui/  and this https://localhost:8333/ui/     well

any ideas?

oh i forget something, when i reinstall ( repair the program with installation file )  the program start to works fine again, and then when i restart i get the problem again

thanks a lot

When you reboot the system, are all of the VMWare server services running?

there is a service called  VMwareServerWebAccess  this powers the web interface, I have found that on most OS this can often fail to start.

yes all the services are running
the only services stoped are: "VMware Host Agent" and VMWare VSS Writer"
i start running the "VMWare Host Agent" but nothing happens yet.

i think the problem maybe is with the tomcat????

sounds like tomcat is not start up right, or at all, have you check your event log to see what is going on when boot up?
