I had problems using the VMware HealthAnalyzer on VMware VC 2.5 Update 2. When i try to Create a new Report Card i’ve got the following message:
Dataset for the report card is not valid. Dataset id=12 ; Datset File Name=/usr/share/ironman/capture/captureFiles/c20080817230624
VMware has confirmed there is a known issue, VMware HealthAnalyzer is not able to parse the version of the SDK correctly and released a fix. The are coming soon with a new version.

Where can I get the HealthAnalyzer from, I cant find it on the applicances download site ?
It’s only available for VMware partners, you find it on the partner site under Info Center.
Thanks, I will check it out.
Were you able to use this with the new patch out? I’m still not able to use it, getting the same error when creating a new report.
After installing the patch it works for VC 2.5 Update 2 and ESX 3.5 Update 2.
I am not able to locate a patch, could you please provide a link?
On the partner site is version 1.2 already available. There’s no need for the patch for version 1.2
Thanks for your message. However, I still not able to locate that under Info center. I’ve checked every menu of a partner site. Do you know exact location of the appliance
Go the partner site, choose browse info center, VAC Program, Tools and choose HealthAnalyser.
