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.
