VMWare VCenter 4.1 64Bit crash with no logs

leave a comment »

I have installed VC4.1 64Bit and after a couple days of use the service crash when you open a VM Settings or creating a new VM.

In the windows machine there is no log information that helps to know the problem.

After some research, and 3 failed new installations, I could see some information in the VPX Log about a service kernel panic.

In the VMWare Communities says the service sometimes fails with no information when there is multiple access to one VM vmdk files. (What happends with Multipath?)

The solution:

  1. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter
  2. Edit vpxd.cfg
  3. add to the end of the file just before the </config> the next sentence:

<vmomi> <panicOnLinkErrors>false</panicOnLinkErrors>  </vmomi>

After configure, restart de VCenter Server and the problems will stop.
