    Issue related on Vmware ESXi

      esxi on vmware.PNGesxi on vmware 2.PNGesxi on web browser.PNG

       

      Good afternoon,

       

      I am testing the vmware ESXi, i have installed on the VMWARE as a virtual machine at the final step i tested the password and match all right, but when i tried to enter on the ESXi through the browser appeared the message that the pass is not correct.

      The pass is right because i can access the setting on the VMWARE, additionally i noted the address on the browser is tagged as a non secure place, i am not sure but that could be blocking the pass.

       

      i send som images on the VMware and the browser.

       

      thanks in advance for your help,

       

      Manuel

          We see this quite often during last few days ....

            Hello Continuum,

             

            i have reinstalled the esxi sw again and  change the pass on the esxi, but the issue has no solution.

            i can access to the vmware sw but i can not access to the web browser.

             

            I attached you a picture of the issue, i have highlighted the security warning for additional information

             

            Please your advice.

             

            Thanks so much,

              Manuel,

               

              The https error you are seeing will not be the cause of your issue, it is because of VMware generating a self-signed certificate. If you have your own SSL certificate, you can upload this (provided it isnt self-signed) then this error will go away. Its nothing to be worried about.

               

              I would personally wait a little bit, have a brew of coffee, tea or something stronger if past 5pm as it can sometimes take a little while for the change of password to be reconsigned through the entire system. Its common for it to happen to me on 6.7 U2 when updating the root password.

                Hello VMwaretester001 ,

                 

                As you mention Vmware generate a self-signed certificate, i need to ask you if for not interrupting this process the PC must be on line all the time?

                i never mention before but you have to know that this esxi sw is running on a Virtual machine i shutdown before go to bed.

                 

                today When i arrived to home i turned on the PC and test again the esxi virtual machine and have the same issue: "

                "

                but the same i tested on the virtual machine it self and can acces with the pass i changes yesterday night.

                 

                Thanks in advance for your kind support

                  Hello Continuum,

                              我是中国一家公司的职员,我在涉及VMware项目的实施中也遇到过类似的问题,我使用的是6.7版本,6.7U1和6.7U2暂时没有使用,担心其他问题。

                  我在第一次遇到类似问题时,差点以为自己手残了,多次输入密码都是提示我有错误,而同时配置同一群集8台设备,有3台存在这样的故障,另外几台正常,才考虑到会是ESXi软件问题。

                  但是一时不知道怎么解决,索性我就在正常群集中部署VCSA,当然,6.7及以后版本的VCSA还有DNS等新问题,这是另一个故事了。安装完VCSA之后,发现ESXi可以正常登陆了。

                  所以我建议遇到类似问题先不要着急处理,给ESXi一个喘息的时间。

                  当然,时后在分析原因的时候,我判断可能是因为本地登录认证服务没有在client-UI服务之前启动,而且发生了延迟启动,具体延迟多少秒没有测过,但是基本会超过10分钟。

                  另一种方案就是通过SSH连接到ESXi camand-line 模式,手动启动或重启相关服务。可能会解决这个问题。

                   

                  just wait 。

                    Hi Manuel,

                     

                    I have just tried this out in my lab, it looks like 6.7U2 might have an issue where when you reboot it, it can some times at a while for the Web UI to allow root users in.

                     

                    This isn't something I can fix and its not something I think most people are going to run into as people hardly reboot their EXSi nodes. My only recommendation is that if you do power the VM or machine off, is to know that its going to take you a little while before you can log in as root. But don't let that stop you from turning the machine off. Just be aware that's all

                     

                    Hope that helps

                      Have you checked your keyboard binding?

                      I had the issue a few times with some annoying out of band cards or exotic keyboards.

                        Hi VMwaretester001,

                         

                        please could you explain with more detail how could i acces the ESXi sw for managing the virtual machines.

                        i understood  that i need to power off the machine and in that moment i could login as a root.

                        Another question since you mention the version 6.7 is the one that presents problems, do you think will better maybe with a lower version.

                        I really appreciate all the help you can provide me so i can continue the vm course i am taking.

                         

                        Thanks in advance,

                          Hi vXav,

                           

                          I also tried with the keybord binding, but this not work.

                           

                          Thanks,

                            Hi Man_1986,

                             

                            There are lots of manuals and videos online to help guide you through accessing the web UI to manage VMs.

                             

                            You can try 6.5 but if your course is centred around 6.7 then going down a version isn't going to be of help, as there maybe wont be features or things in the same place in say 6.5 as there is in 6.7.

                             

                            If your having issues with the VM when you power it on, after doing a full shut down, you could try a suspend. That way the machine is in a sleep state, but you dont have to reboot it. Other than that, your just have to plan for the time it takes for the services to restart themselves on reboot. Its something I have to plan for when I do maintenance on my hosts. As I have no way around it atm.
