VMWare ESX server Action ?
Hi All,

We just decided to migrate from the VMWare server to ESX server. Our test setup previously was to startup images remotely via VPB and after tests was done to shut them down. When trying to start an image via the "VMware Server Action" we are experiencing the following error,

"Unexpected response from vmware-authd: 510 Could not execute /usr/sbin/vmware-serverd"

vmware-serverd does not exist on the ESX server, is there any way to perform the same actions available for VMWare server for the ESX one? or is this a feature soon will be supported by VBP?

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply and sorry for posting in the wrong section, all the VMware tools are functioning and host entries are correct.

maybe I should chnage my question to this, is it possible to start the ESX image using the VMWare Server Action?
I am assuming its the same API calls, but not 100% sure

That should work, since VBP's VMware Server action uses the VmCom API, which is supported by ESX Server. You can test VmCom directly via VBScript (either in a .vbs file or using a Run Script action in VBP) -- see the VBScript Sample Program 3 in the VmCom docs.
