Upon trying to update the Free version of VMware ESXi Hypervisor from version 3.5 to 4.1 I ran into a cryptic error.
After installing vSphere CLI 4.1 on Windows 7 x64 bit, running the vihostupdate.pl perl script resulted in the following error:
“The ordinal 3212 could not be located in the dynamic link library LIBEAY32.dll”
Thanks to Patters at his PC Load Letter Blog I was able to get the error resolved without trying to replace multiple dll files strewn all over my drive which had installed with various programs.
Essentially, his post boils it down to opening Perl Package Manager, removing the existing Crypt-SSLeay package (Installed with 0.53) and updating it with the latest version (at the moment 0.57).
Check out the solution at his site:
