Failed to log into NFC server

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am getting the following error message trying to to upload or download files directly from VMware ESXi 5 by browsing the data store. I have used a different installation of the vSphere Client to upload /download my files from the VMware datastore. I didn’t get any issue using different client. I think there is a client issue please suggest me in a proper way. I am using Win 8 OS. Thanks.

Failed to log into NFC server

To resolve this issue, add the carriage return to /etc/vmware/config.
To add the carriage return to /etc/vmware/config:
  1. Connect to the ESX host using SSH. For more information, see Connecting to an ESX host using an SSH client (1019852).

  2. Take a backup of the /etc/vmware/config file using this command:

    cp /etc/vmware/config /var/tmp/

  3. Edit the /etc/vmware/config file, so that there is a carriage return after this line:

    prefvmx.consolidateDeleteNFSLocks = "TRUE"

    For example, the entries should appear similar to:

    authd.soapServer = "TRUE"
    prefvmx.consolidateDeleteNFSLocks = "TRUE"
    authd.proxy.vpxa-nfc = "vmware-vpxa:vpxa-nfc"
    authd.proxy.vpxa-nfcssl = "vmware-vpxa:vpxa-nfcssl"

  4. Restart the hostd management agent using this command:

    service mgmt-vmware restart
