You may not even require cpp and gcc.

Only if your using a kernel that VMware do not provide modules for will you need them.

They are developer tools and having them on a server may exasperate a security breach.

consol error
« Reply #62 on: December 08, 2006, 05:25:45 PM »
I followed the howto in this posting and I have two pretty new servers that I successfully installed vm server on and their happy and running fine.
There is a third server i did the same thing as i did before and i get a console connection error. where the console upon connection gives me an error that vm actively disconnected me.

Anyone who had the same problem and had it corrected?


Thanks,

Bela.

Hey guys, I just installed vmware per this how-to, it seems that vmware-mui has been replaced by a 'evaluation only' of VirtualCenter for VMware Server http://www.vmware.com/products/server/vc14.html
If that's true how are you managing your VMs?
[edit]
I found this a nice addition, not sure if it will actually do what I need

Thanks a lot guys, I found nothing on their page. I even registered for the evaluation product but received no email from them (yet!).
Time to play  :D

I'm installed and  configured the vmware stuff and all, but I can't get my vsystems to boot at start up, looking at the logs I see:
Code: [Select]
Jan 30 21:04:11: app| Msg_Post: Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such device.
Jan 30 21:04:11: app| Please make sure that the kernel module `vmmon' is loaded.

What am I missing here?
Thanks,

Yes, I ran that on the beginning of the installation!
I re-run the vmware-config.pl and everything seems fine, including the line that states:
Code: [Select]

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

The module bld-2.6.9-11.EL-i686smp-RHEL4 loads perfectly in the running kernel.

Edit:
Reinstalled all again and it's working  :pint:
Thanks,

Three comments:

1) Thanks for sharing, everyone!

2) The new URL for the smeserver-vmware-server RPM is:
Quote
http://mirror.contribs.org/smeserver/releases/7.1/smedev/i386/RPMS/smeserver-vmware-server-0.0.1-4.el4.sme.noarch.rpm


3) The gcc compiler, etc. will be needed in the future.  Every time there is a kernel update, the vmware-config.pl command will need to be run again, so you may not want to uninstall that stuff...

p.s.  I maintain a howto on our web site for internal use...
