I would like to adjust my question slightly as I just updated one of my servers from 12.04 to 12.04.1 and am now seeing the same warnings on the upgraded server as well, so I am suspecting there is something with the kernel (which was upgraded) or one of the other packages.
So since there appears to be a lack of 'resolution' (googled for a quite a while to find something), can someone tell me how to suppress the warnings for open-vm-tools.
---[ original question below]---
I setup a new server today (VMware guest) and noticed in the
/var/syslog the following warning entries:
(coming from open-vm-tools)
Jan 29 19:20:49 mail01 vmsvc: [ warning] [guestinfo] Error sending GuestMemInfo. Jan 29 19:20:49 mail01 vmsvc: [ warning] [guestinfo] Failed to send vmstats.
These warnings are happening every 30 seconds. Oddly enough however VMware Infrastructure Client appears to be showing correct information regardless of the warnings. I have several other servers all running Ubuntu 12.04 (some upgraded from 10.04 even) that are running
open-vm-tools, and none of them are producing this warning.
I have googled the error message but have come up with nothing as of yet. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I do realize the alternative is to compile and install the tools directly from the server, but I would rather just use a package that has worked on other machines.
Host: VMware ESX Server 3i, 3.5.0, build 207095 (best I can do an HP Proliant DL580 G2) Guest / OS: Ubuntu 12.04.1 - 32bit
Any other information that I can provide, please let me know.
