VMware Management Interface Does Not Work After I Reboot Linux Host (1731)


When I reboot my Linux host, the VMware Management Interface does not work. I must re-run to get the management interface to work again. Is there a better way to make the management interface work?


This issue has been seen on various Linux hosts.

In order for the VMware Management Interface to work on these hosts, you need to patch httpd.vmware. Complete the following steps.

  1. Download the patch installation archive vmware-mui-fix-1.tgz onto your GSX Server host. The file is located as an attachment at the bottom of this page.
  2. Change to the directory where you downloaded the archive.
  3. Run:
    tar zxf vmware-mui-fix-1.tgz
    This extracts the contents of the patch vmware-mui-fix-1.
  4. Change to the installation directory.
    cd vmware-mui-fix-1
  5. Run the patch installer.
    ./ --default
  6. After the installation finishes, the management interface should start correctly the next time you reboot the host.
