Accessing VMWare console - Ubuntu VMware Server 2.0

Hi,

We have recently inherited a Dell server running Ubuntu linux with VMware Server 2.0, installed. We are trying to access the console so we can manage the currently running vm`s but are unable to access the web interface locally on the Ubuntu server. We have tried to access this via https://serverip:3338 and have checked through /etc/init.d but cannot see any relevant services for the vmware web access or apache tomcat.

If we also try to run any vmrun commands against the server we are getting cannot connect to host. Can anyone help with us getting connected to this host?

Cheers,
LVL 2

Try:
http://IPofServer:8222 (no SSL; if this port doesn't work, try http://IPofSrvr:8333...no SSL)

I really thought it was 8333, but according to User's Guide:
http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vmserver2.pdf, pg. 48, it's 8222...hmmm...

Try different browsers "sensata" - Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari to see if any of those will work...

Perhaps the web management is not installed. you can download this from here
http://register.vmware.com/content/download.html

You could also try to download vmware server console from vmware and then try to connect with that

Hi,

The console was installed, we are not sure as to why it would not work and so we performed a V2P of the VM (as that`s what we were trying to achieve) using Backup Exec System Recovery. We have now scrapped the original VM server in place of the converted vm.

Thanks.
