VMware Web Service Not Available

September 26th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

After upgrading to VMware Server 2, I have sporadically received an error message stating “vmware ServiceNotAvailableException: Web service not available”. There isn’t much information on the cause of this error, but I found disabling IPv6 resolved it for me.

On CentOS 5 you can disable IPv6 by adding the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf. You will need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

alias ipv6 off
alias net-pf-10 off
