Issues When Running GSX Server on a 64-Bit Linux Host (1698)
The VMware Management Interface does not work on 64-bit Linux hosts. Do not install the management interface software on such hosts.
The VMware Perl API does not work with 64-bit Perl on a 64-bit Linux host. To use the VMware Perl API with a 64-bit Linux host, install the VMware Perl API on a 32-bit host and use it to control the 64-bit host remotely.
Since the VMware Perl API does not work on 64-bit Linux hosts, the vmware-cmd utility does not work on them either. To use the vmware-cmd utility, install GSX Server (which includes thevmware-cmd utility) on a 32-bit host on which the VMware Perl API has been installed.
