The Beta for RHEL6 was just released. Anyone tried it on ESXi4 yet? Any caveats I should be aware of?'
I intend to test it myself tomorrow. With a bit of luck it will be a slow day at the office
(TIP: You can force luck by locking the door to your office and ripping out the telephone)
Mmm, it works.
Although I didn't get an ip address using the flexible NIC. But E1000 works fine.
Can't logon as root to the graphical console and that sucks!!
I just installed it and cannot get the VMware tools to install completely.
I've made sure to "yum groupinstall 'Development tools' " and it still is failing
I attached the full vmware-config-tools.pl log and here's an example of the error:
/tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only/vmxnet.c: In function ‘vmxnet_set_multicast_list’: /tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only/vmxnet.c:2411: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘priv’ /tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only/vmxnet.c: In function ‘vmxnet_get_stats’: /tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only/vmxnet.c:2491: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘priv’ make: *** [/tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only/vmxnet.o] Error 1 make: *** [_module_/tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.32-19.el6.x86_64' make: *** [http://vmxnet.ko|http://vmxnet.ko] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config19/vmxnet-only' Unable to build the vmxnet module.
I should follow by saying that vSphere Client reports "VMware Tools: OK" and that the E1000 network card works before and after installing the VMware tools.
