can someone tell me if it's possible to install 7zip on a esx host, if so then how?
Isn't 7-zip a windows utility? Either way it is not recommended to install software into the service console of ESX -
it's a linux util as well, was just hoping i could leverage it in the console as well.
I did it as extension of backup script described on forum...
working very well, have only 1 problem [did not detect reasons yet] if I start 3 instances in the same time to pack 3 different virtual machines two of the instance go out.
If I start only 2 everything is fine.
Yes.. you can install.... and use it....
BTW, do you know why starting several instances of 7zip in the same time cause some of them not working ?
Is it a problem of 7zip of ESXI cause some restrictions in case of too high kernel overload (compressing cause ESXI very overloaded) ?
Is there any parametrization in ESXI to manage this restrictions ?
Wonderful, so HOW can I install 7zip in ESXi terminal console ? thanks a lot, have a nice day. m.m.
I have installed it and working since last few months . .
If you already have installed and facing any problem please let us know.
