No module named six" error when scanning ESX

File Server Resource Manager may be causing your issues if you have it engaged.

The file path has the word “crypto” in it. When using File Server Resource Manager to actively block files with certain patterns from being written to the server. Tried disabling the File Server Resource Manager service and tried again – no dice. After some digging around and experimentation I thought maybe the file screen (the thing that does the blocking) was still in force even though the service was not running so I deleted the file screen and hey presto, no more error. I then tried polling the VMware host and I got information back!

I am getting the "No module named six" error on a Server 2019 box without FSRM installed.

Code: Select all

PROBE -> [ Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python27\check_esxi_hardware.py", line 249, in <module>
    import pywbem
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pywbem-0.10.0-py2.7.egg\pywbem\__init__.py", line 34, in <module>
    from .cim_types import *  # noqa: F403,F401
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pywbem-0.10.0-py2.7.egg\pywbem\cim_types.py", line 76, in <module>
    import six
ImportError: No module named six ]
Any Idea's or anything I can do to help troubleshoot? Thanks!

Looks like you have a similar issue to whats posted here

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=5307&sid=289888897 ... cf43371f54

Basically when Python is installed it fails to install the common modules it to its library. In some cases this was a PATH issue and in other cases it was permissions when installed. What I would do first is remove the c:\python27 directory and then tell plugin to rescan probe. This will force a reinstall of python during scan and may correct some issues strait away. You also have the option of moving probe to another system to see if that systems responds differently.
