Hi - I am been trying to install the ESXi via auto deploy mode on vmware workstation 8 in my lab,
I am getting an error after the rule creation, I have enclosed the jpg file.Am I unable to find any clue. Can anyone please help.
It boots and gets the IP. create the rule based on MAC pattern and finally it takes 10 min and gives the error(enclosed)
Nope. I was trying on Auto Deploy version 5. I have unistalled WinAgents TFTP server and replaced with Solarwindws and re-created the Deployrule with different MAC, but no luck.I have not missed any steps which we had it in the conversation. Let me try and re-deploy it to vSphere 5.1.
Andre - I found the cause. All the steps what we followed were exactly correct. But I made the small miskate in the rule creation using new-deployrule command. I was creased based the MAC pattern and while creation I entered the MAC in the small letter and I deleted the old one and created the new one with the MAC address entered in CAPS, It worked fine. Thanks for your help -
Thank You. I have faced the same issue and resolved using the previous mentioned troubleshooting. Also I would suggest to use AutoDeploy GUI instead of PowerCLI to create the rules ,manage, etc.. By which you can troubleshoot the issues easily.
Auto Deploy GUI can be downloaded from https://labs.vmware.com/flings/autodeploygui
