3.0.1.9 VGAuthService] ServiceDaemonize: Couldn't open PID path Solved

Post by henk » 26 Mar 2017 13:56

After the upgrade:

/etc/init.d/vgauthd start
Starting VGAuthService: [FAILED]

in /var/log/vmware-vgauthsvc.log.0

Mar 26 15:28:56.989] [ warning] [VGAuthService] ServiceDaemonize: Couldn't open PID path [/var/run/vmware/vgauthsvclog_pid.txt], error 2.
[Mar 26 15:28:56.989] [ warning] [VGAuthService] main: failed to daemonize

Solution: manual create : /var/run/vmware

/etc/init.d/vgauthd start
Starting VGAuthService: [ OK ]

/etc/init.d/vgauthd status
VGAuthService (pid 15629) is running...

ls -l /var/run/vmware
total 4
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0 Mar 26 15:53 guestServicePipe
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5 Mar 26 15:53 vgauthsvclog_pid.txt
