I have 3i update 2 installed on a Dell R900. After installing and creating the guest I am unable to boot the CDROM or an ISO file from the SAN. I have checked the boxes and have recreaded the guest many times and have reinstalled ESX 3i 3.5.0 update 2 post Aug12th a few times, I have rest the system clock just in case.
I am still unable to install a guest.
Hi Terry, welcome to the VMware Community forums. Are you enabling the "connect at power on" option when you pick to use an ISO image? For host CD-ROMs, there are some issues with SATA based devices not being available for use in a VM.
Dont forget to set up boot device order in bios to include/prefer your CD/DVD drive. To enter your vm bios you must set up your vm to enter bios on next boot in Edit Settings.../Options/Boot Options.
