vmware server 2 on Linux has blank web page


It took a while, but I found the solution for the blank web page on vmware server 2. If I viewed the source, I could see that content was being delivered, however the page would appear blank.

I also saw a variety of errors at the command line, including "599 vmware-authd PANIC: getpeername failed: Socket operation on non-socket", "terminate called after throwing an instance of 'VmdbError'" and " Failed to connect: 514 Error connecting to hostd-vmdb service instance."

When this happens, here is how I fix it:

Quote:
root@computer ~# netstat -lnupt | grep 902
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:902 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 18939/vmware-authdl
root@computer ~# kill 18939
root@computer ~# netstat -lnupt | grep 902
root@computer ~# vmware-authdlauncher
root@computer ~# netstat -lnupt | grep 902
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:902 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 15935/vmware-authdl
root@computer ~#

Just a follow up...this worked great with vmware-server 2.0.1. I tried upgrading
to 2.0.2, and now I have the same symptoms, but killing and starting vmware-authdlauncher
no longer fixes the problem.

Yet another update...I read there is a problem with a particular library on Red Hat
and CentOS systems, so I ran these commands:

Quote:
mkdir /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libc.so.6
cd /tmp
mkdir tmp
cd tmp
wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.3/....5-34.i386.rpm
rpm2cpio glibc-2.5-34.i386.rpm |cpio -ivd
mv lib/libc-2.5.so /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libc.so.6/libc.so.6
cd
rm -rf /tmp/tmp
service vmware restart
This by itself did not fix the blank page, but after this I could run
"service vmware-mgmt restart" to fix the problem.

Fun. Fun.
