Network pings failed at Client0 VM - "Client0: All pings failed at 192.168.1.1"

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm trying to provision the workload VMs using VMMark3 in a seperate cluster (other than the PrimeClient and Client0 VMs) and it looks the provisioning was successful.

I've observed that the IP addresses are assigned from a default internal network (192.168.1.x).

These internal IPs are not reachable from my PrimeClient (which is on a different network, PrimeClient is  on 10.111.0.x):

Following is the error message from the provisioning logs: (Attached

2020-07-28T13:16:03.569 [pool-3-thread-20] ERROR COMM : Client0 : All pings failed at 192.168.1.1 : Try increasing ProvisionPingMaxTries in VMmark3.properties

2020-07-28T13:16:03.570 [pool-3-thread-20] ERROR ST221 : Terminating Early Due to Provision Thread Errors (2)

2020-07-28T13:16:03.576 [pool-3-thread-20] ERROR MAIN : Exception Caught: Terminating Early Due to Provision ThreadErrorsErrorsFound: 2 : exitSetting true

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Krishna

Hi Krishna,

As Fred mentioned the instructions are on pages 47-48.  If you've correctly modified the ifcfg-eno* files (per page 48) then they shouldn't be changing after a reboot.  Double check you have things right there.

Look at the documentation pages 47-48 about configuring the PrimeClient - especially the parts that talks about adding 2 NICs. One NIC for the isolated private network (default 192.168.1.X) and the other NIC to to access the outside networks and ESXi hosts.

Thanks fredab2​ - I've modified the IP address, NetMask and GateWay details for the 2nd NIC with the private network details. (192.168.1.x). The Workload VMs are reachable now.

However, if I reboot PrimeClient VM (though there is no need to reboot, but just in case), the network changes I made are lost and the previous configuration is set.

Any guidance here is highly helpful.

Best,

Krishna
