Vmware Esxi - Segmentation fault - vim-cmd

Hello,


I am trying to manage a virtual machine running on Vmware ESXI using the VIM-CMD command and I am having problems with some operations.

I can power on a specific server using the command 'VIM-CMD /VMSVC/POWER.ON 688' but cannot power off that server (command used:VIM-CMD /VMSVC/POWER.OFF 688) for example. In that case, I have a 'Segmentation fault' error.

I also tried the command 'VIM-CMD /VMSVC/GET.SUMMARY 688 with the same result BUT this command work with another vm that I have.

The vm is running Red Hat Linux.

Any ideas why I get that 'Segmentation Fault' error?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

M.

Segmentation fault normally refers to some kind of memory error.. that's all I can think off.
Are you using installable ESXi or Embedded ESXi?

Found the problem.

The vwmare server was not up to date. Installation of the latest updates fix the problem.
