I had a similar problem and using your earlier advice I thought I had it fixed.
However, when the VMware Infrastructure Web Access window appears, I input my Login Name and Password and get the reply
"You do not have permission to login to the server"
Can you tell me what i need to do?

When you run the script it asks something about who owns or accesses the VMware (you probably said root) what ever user name you gave it then would be able to. you can always logon as that user and add your username or just run the script again.

best of luck!
