Hello,

I have VMWare Server 1.0.4 build-56528 installed on Fedora 7 (kernel 2.6.23.1-21.fc7). I am not able to create shared disk. I normally use this feature under Ubuntu, but here under Fedora I am not able to create it. Virtual machine doesn't want to start. Here is a log error from vmware-serverd.log:

Nov 23 16:16:25: app| vmserverd: Could not connect to virtual machine /home/user/VM_machines/Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition/Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.vmx: Unexpected response from vmware-authd: Error connecting to /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx process.

Here is my vmx file:

ide1:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
checkpoint.vmState = ""

tools.syncTime = "FALSE"

ethernet1.addressType = "generated"
ethernet1.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:ab:4a:dc"
ethernet1.generatedAddressOffset = "10"

scsi1.sharedBus = "virtual"
scsi1:0.mode = "persistent"
scsi1:0.deviceType = "disk"
scsi1.present = "TRUE"
scsi1:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi1:0.fileName = "/home/griga/VM_machines/SAN/lun0.vmdk"
scsi1.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
scsi1:0.redo = ""
scsi1:0.writeThrough = "TRUE"

Any idea?

Thank you.
