Just try! If it doesn't work, undo. No permanent damage can be done, AFAIK.

I did, restarting VMware afterwards. Now I get this after attempting to login:

The server was unable to process your log in request. Please check
with your server administrator.

Here is the /var/log/vmware/hostd.log:

The next to last entry looked suspicious because I had just stopped/restarted vmware (service vmware stop/start), so:

linux-lm5l:/var/log/vmware # ps -ef | grep hostd
root 10882 1 0 Jan22 ? 00:00:08 /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-hostd -a -d -u /etc/vmware/hostd/config.xml
root 18615 17465 0 13:16 pts/2 00:00:00 grep hostd
linux-lm5l:/var/log/vmware # kill -9 10882

Finally, after stopping/starting vmware once again:

[2010-01-23 13:21:09.047 'Proxysvc Req00001' 140377692190992 warning] Exception while processing request: Could not find host address for localhost: Unknown host

I have the latest VMware Server 2 User Guide and there is no mention of IPv6.

Also, why is it trying port 8308 when 8222/8333 were specified in the coniguration?

Here is netstat -pal output:

linux-lm5l:/var/log/vmware # netstat -pal 8222 | grep vmware

Any ideas? (other than start over with VirtualBox which is looking better with each passing day!)
