VMware Server must be installed on this machine for the VMware Management Interface to workInstallation aborts.
In order to fix this I had to remove the library libgcc_s.so.1 in /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1:
mv libgcc_s.so.1 libgcc_s.so.1_origInstallation of MUI worked fine afterwards.
In order to start the management interface during the next reboot one has to add a few lines at the beginning of /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware:
RUNDIR="/var/run/vmware/httpd"Now, the management interface survives a reboot.
/usr/bin/test -d "$RUNDIR" || \
/bin/mkdir -p "$RUNDIR" && /bin/chown "$OWNER:$GROUP" "$RUNDIR"
This workaround fixed the installation problem of the server console on the workstation as well.
