Intermittent access to VMware Infrastructure Web Access
Posted on 2015-02-08
I'm having trouble reliably accessing a VMware web interface.
The VM is VMware Server 2.0.2 running a virtual Windows Server 2008 on a Linux host.
The VMware Infrastructure Web Access is version 2.0.0
It's the same problem whether I'm on the VM's LAN or accessing it remotely.
Port forwarding (of port 8333) is correctly set up in the router.
Access is via IE8 (or later, but in IE8 mode) and SSL 2.0 in advanced browser settings has been enabled.
There are two problems (probably part of the same issue):
1) It often takes several goes to logon successfully, either because there is no response, or I get a false username/password error or I get an HTTP error (see 2, below)
2) Once I've successfully logged on, after anything from a few second to a few mins I get an error, usually after clicking on something in the application, as follows:
The server could not complete a request (HTTP nnnn)
(where nnnn is an up to 4 digit number)
The server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request. If this problem persists, please contact your system administrator.
I then click OK and it takes me back to the login screen.
Can any help me with this please, as it's driving me up the wall.
