Management Homepage on ESX 3.5 - Timeouts

We have timeouts when accessing the HP Management Homepage on some of our VMware ESX 3.5 servers. At the same time we see error messages in /var/spool/opt/hp/hpsmh/logs/error_log
It says there everytime the Management Homepage is accessed:
Symbolic link not allowed: /opt/hp/hpsmh/data/htdocs/ACU-XE/ipcelmclient.php

It is interesting to note that we have 3 ESX 3.5 servers running. One has no problems but 2 others get these timeouts.

The one WITHOUT the timeouts has these binaries installed:
hpsmh (2.1.9-178)
hpasm (7.8.0-88.vmware30)

The two others that are WITH timeouts have these:
hpsmh: 2.1.10-186 & hpasm: 7.9.1-22.vmware30
hpsmh: 2.1.11-197 & hpasm: 8.0.0-173.vmware30

So the old binaries are without timeouts and the newer ones have them.

Any idea what we could do about this? Thank you in advance!

Re: Management Homepage on ESX 3.5 - Timeouts

I've not seen this here and we're running the latest agents.
I don't think the earlier agents are supported on ESX 3.5.
Was the whole PSP package installed using the install shell script?
Just checked and there's a version 8.1.0 now available. See:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=428936&swItem=MTX-62350b0bf98a442fb3c1cb1154&prodNameId=3288114&swEnvOID=4025&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=3

This seems to have some fixes for timeout errors.

Thank you Rob,

I installed version 8.10 and the timeouts are gone. Now I have WBEM problems but that will go into an extra thread.
