VMWare Server not accessible via web interface?

I recently had an issue where VMWare Server 2’s web based administrative interface was no longer available 🙁

It turns out the issue was that one of the services required by VMWare Server 2 had stopped. Starting the service again solved the issue!

  • VMWare Host Agent
  • VMWare Authorization service
  • VMWare DHCP service
  • VMWare NAT Service
  • VMWare Server Web Access

I had tried all sorts of things (Windows firewall adjustment, .hosts file editing, tomcat configuration etc.) and just a simple service start of the VMWare Host Agent service was all that required!
