    i have a centos 5.4 server with vmware server 2.0.2 installed on il. I am running two virtual machines on it: Microsoft windows xp pro sp3 and Centos 5.4 (both 32 bits).

    I the last time, my virtual machines are stopped automaticaly, for example: i start both vm's in the evening, and in the morning they are powered down.
    Often happens that vmware-mngm service is not accesible, i'm trying to acces it on browser but is not accesible. After i restart vmware-mngm service, it is working, but aflte a few operations with virtual machines, it gives me an error and stop responding again.

    What should i do to solve this problem?

    Thank you

    Did you switch off SELinux?

    Downgrade glibc to fix

    I was having this problem for a couple of days. Wasted many hours trying to figure out what the problem was.

    Apparently, the glibc libraries that come with CentOS 5.4 cause the vmware-hostd process to crash. It's a known issue. You have to downgrade your glibc libraries to those from CentOS 5.3.

    Here are the details of how I fixed the problem, along with a link to the bug as reported on a the bugs.CentOS.org site.
