vmware esxi, vmrc character limit for target in shortcut?
Posted on 2010-08-19
Is there a 64 character limit in the -m parameter of the vmrc command line?
I have one guest with 65 characters in the -m "[datastore1] folder/vm_name.vmx" parameter, and I can't connect to it using vmrc. Other guests with less than 64 characters work fine.
(I don't know how to find the MOID to try the -M option and verify that I can connect that way).
I'm getting errors trying to connect to a guest using VMRC from 2 different machines. One a Win7 workstation, the error is:
Unable to connect to the MKS: Could not connect to pipe \\.\pipe\vmware-authdpipe: The system cannot find the file specified.
From another workstation, I get an error about username/password.
