Error installing VMM agent on ESX3

Hi,
Having problem when I try to install the VMM agent on 2 different Bl20p G4 with ESX3 with all patches. Im running the agent install local on the machine. When I run the script I get the following output:

No HP Virtual Machine Management Agent has been installed.

checking the port usage.
No port range change is required.

After I have done this I get an error as soon as I run the esxcfg-firewall command. So I suspect that the /etc/vmware/firewall/services.xml get corrupted due to somethin in the VMM installation. Anyone else that have this problem ?

V2.1 is installed on the SIM-server. And the agent for the ESX-server is named hpvmmagent-4.1.0.1214-esx.i386.
