VMware Perl SDK bug and workaround
During an attempt to use the VMware Perl SDK, I have encountered the following error:
VMControl Panic: SSLLoadSharedLibrary: Failed to load library /usr/bin/libcrypto.so.0.9.7:/usr/bin/libcrypto.so.0.9.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This is weird, as it was compiled successfully on my system (Centos4), but still…
The workaround was to create two symlinks:
ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so /usr/bin/libcrypto.so.0.9.7
ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so /usr/bin/libssl.so.0.9.7
This was related to an attempt to setup VMware fencing in RH Cluster on VMware Server.
