  • virtual infrastructure client connection failed

    Hi !
    I installed vmware esx 3.0 server on vmware vorkstation 6.
    In fist time I am successfully connected to esx console with VI client .
    I deleted and installed esx 3.0 server again , after that unable to logon with VI client with user root like I used before . The error message is : connection failed.
    I can ping esx server , but cannot connect it in internet explorer in my win xp sp2 workstation.
    New installation doesnt solve the issue.
    what shall I do?
    Thanks a lot
    Vadim

    Can you try a service mgmg-vmware restart in the service console on your ESX host and then try connecting with the VIC again? Is there a firewall between your ESX host and your VIC?

      And by default ESX 3.x the root user is not allowed to login through SSH by default.

      That can be changed by editting /etc/ssh/sshd_config and adding the # to the PermitRootLogin line
      and restarting the ssh service with "service sshd restart"

        Hi
        There is no firewall between esx host and Vic , I restarted service mgmt -vmware , but with no luck. Any ideas?

          Can you log on to the ESX console and ping your workstation?

          Can you view the network conversation with a protocol analyzer such as Microsoft Network Monitor or Wireshark to see what the communication looks like?
