Cisco UCS Manager KVM Console and Java

Cisco UCS Manager KVM Console and Java


  • Share on Pinterest

I recently upgraded Java on my windows 7 PC to version 7 update 21 – feels like I am doing this all the time. Once the install was completed – everything seemed to be fine, or so I thought. Using Google Chrome, when I tried using my UCS Manager KVM Console software I start getting the following error.

Cannot run program “C:\Progam”: CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

Then I tried to connect using the KVM console within the general UCS  console, got the same error message, of course its linked to the same  application.  So I went searching and found what I think is the  solution.

The Fix

I found a solution document on the Cisco UCS support site, – UCS Manager Error Opening KVM Console After Java Upgrade.  Tums out that the version of JAVA I downloaded does not recognize the space between C:\Program Files\… installation path.  I re-installed the latest version, I opted to change the installation directory and remove C:\Program Files.. and replace it with C:\JAVA\… and my system is now working!

I suspect that with the next release of JAVA this will be fix, but for the time being I am happy to have found a solution.

Have you run into this error? Let me know on Twitter and thanks for reading.
