Failing to connect to vCenter

edited April 2020 in VMware
ERROR          : vmw2rrd failed during connect for username='<domain>\<user>, host='<host>' : Server version unavailable at 'https://<HOST>:443/sdk/vimService.wsdl' at /lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd/vmware-lib/VMware/ line 709.
 /lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd/bin/ : Not owner

I have observed that the /lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd/.vmware/credstore/vicredentials.xml file is owned by the apache user, not lpar2rrd. However, changing this means that it cannot be edited from the GUI.


  • Hi,

    1. what is your perl SDK version and vCenter version?

    2. follow this for your platform: it might fix it

  • perk SDK and vCenter are both 6.7.0
    Connection test works OK

     $PERL vmware-lib/apps/ --server <HOST> --username <USER>@&lt;DOMAIN> --credstore .vmware/credstore/vicredentials.xml

     Connection Successful
    Server Time : 2020-04-28T12:29:41.621703Z

  • strange, it should work, send us logs

    Note a short problem description in the text field of the upload form.

    cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd  # or where is your LPAR2RRD working dir

    tar cvhf logs.tar logs tmp/*txt tmp/*json

    gzip -9 logs.tar

    Send us logs.tar.gz via
