HTTP XML Authentication failed from IP ESX Host Utilities

dstrebel

When running the following from my ESX Server config_mpath --query --verbose it get Connection error. Then looking on the filer it shows an error form the ESX host that HTTP XML Authentication failed. Any Ideas? This is for the Netapp ESX Host Utilities

HI David, we are getting the exact same errors when trying to install the host utilities.  Did you ever figure out a solution?

Thanks,

Bryan

Sorry I thought I posted back the solution. You need to set options httpd.admin.hostsequiv.enable and add each ESX host to RSH access list. If you have any questions or need any help let me know.
