I have gone through the deployment of the VDP appliance. I have completed the initial configuration including testing the connection. After clicking finish I get an immediate message saying to reboot the appliance. I do this and it gets to the message about taking about 5 minutes to finish configuration on the console. After about 5 minutes the network/login screen appears in the console. After this nothing useful works.... I can ping the appliance so networking is working but I cannot open the browser to the configuration page and nothing appears in the web client. When I try to login on the console I have to use the original password "changeme" so that didn't take either. If I reboot the appliance again the configuration page works but goes back to the initialization page. It seems like the initial configuration never gets configured in the appliance.
In the step of reboot appliance pop up did you confirm it or just rebooted the appliance ?
The reason why i am asking you this is..the confirmation plays an important role...it updates the configuration to a file in background.
I confirmed it. How long should I wait before rebooting the appliance. The second and third times I've tried this I waited a few minutes. There's nothing indicating anything different.
It actually syas click "finish" to confirm. It then says "configuration complete please reboot appliance".
Well it seems you have to try it 7 times! I went through the process again so I could get the correct messages to post and of course this time it worked!!
Einstein was wrong, doing something multiple times and expecting different results is not stupidity!
