We are running Esx 3.5 VM on a 2088 server. We are using tis for file serving and exchange plus 4 other VM's I setup a new machine using the new Windows 7 platform and wanted to add the new vmware infrastructure access client to the server. Don't ask me what I did cause I don't know....somehow I changed permissions incorrectly and ended up with a read only root!! The VM's are all functioning properly....I can ping everything and now am using remote desktop to administer the accounts. Problem that this caused is now I do not have access to the VM's to be able to shutdown/restart/open/admi
nister etc.....anything using the infrstructure client from any machine. I cannot shutdown anything at this point since I only have remote desktop access.. The icons in the tool bar of the client are all grayed out when you select a machine. The console no longer accessible. Found an interesting thread at :http://communities.vmware.com/thread/72554
. Tried suggestions with little success. If anyone has don't something equally stupid and managed to get out of it I would really appreciate the help.................
This is the content in the referred to authorization.xml file. (DataRoleId...has been changed from 2 to 1) I have restarte management services but not being able to restart VM's I have not rebooted.
