Nagios XI VMware Monitoring Wizard Installation fails

Postby mzimny » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:17 am

Hello,

I´m trying to install the "Configuration Wizard: VMware" via https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... 1527583422

I downloaded VMware-vSphere-Perl-SDK-6.7.0-8156551.x86_64.tar.gz for my Centos 6.9 and Nagios XI v. 5.4.13 installation.

After using

./vmware-install.pl EULA_AGREED=yes

the following happens:

Code: Select all
[root@vmnagios54prd01 vmware-vsphere-cli-distrib]# ./vmware-install.pl EULA_AGREED=yes

I also tried viewtopic.php?f=35&t=37799#p178278 but it didnt work either.

How to get this VMware Wizard working? Thanks for help in advance.

Greetings

Run the following to install the uuid-perl module:

yum -y install uuid-perl

and then try the vmware installer again.

I found this guide which has some deatails on what the installer expects:

https://vdc-download.vmware.com/vmwb-re ... -guide.pdf

Try installing the following:

yum install e2fsprogs-devel libuuid-devel
yum install glibc.i686
yum install perl-XML-LibXML

Re: Nagios XI VMware Monitoring Wizard Installation fails

Postby cdienger » Thu Jun 14, 2018 2:21 pm

It appears there is an additional perl module that is required. I was able to reproduce the problem and could see that the UUID package was downloaded to /root/.cpan/build/UUID-0.27-XXXXXX. When I tried to build it through I recieved an error that it required devel/checklib. I then ran:

yum install perl-Devel-CheckLib

and it was then able to install. Test this out and let me know your results. If you still run into the same error, go to the UUID build directory and run:

perl Makefile.PL

and let me know if it returns any messages.

The line

yum install perl-Devel-CheckLib

did it:

Code: Select all
The installation of vSphere CLI 6.7.0 build-8156551 for Linux completed
successfully. You can decide to remove this software from your system at any
time by invoking the following command:
"/usr/bin/vmware-uninstall-vSphere-CLI.pl".

This installer has successfully installed both vSphere CLI and the vSphere SDK
for Perl.

The following Perl modules were found on the system but may be too old to work
with vSphere CLI:

Crypt::SSLeay 0.72 or newer
XML::SAX 0.99 or newer
XML::NamespaceSupport 1.12 or newer
XML::LibXML::Common 2.0129 or newer
XML::LibXML 2.0129 or newer
Socket6  0.28 or newer
IO::Socket::INET6 2.72 or newer

Enjoy,

Thanks for your help!
