Sooner or later, we are going to deploy vSphere and vCenter to LTE Datacenter server so that I'd like to self-experiment on its function(HA, vMotion) in VMware Workstation
because I , sadly , don't have enough equipment on the hands. Welcome any technical advice~!!! :smileygrin:
Notebook has 8GB memory now.
I allocated 4GB on ESXi_1 and 2GB on ESXi_2 vm and installed vCneter Server Appliance on ESXi_1.
By installing vSphere(vCSA) client on host computer, conneting to vCSA encountered with some below issues.
. Error message when I tried to connect vCenter
Could Not Connect:vSphere Client could not connect to "172.17.9.100".
An unknown connection error occurred.(The request failed because the remote server took too long to respond. (The operation has timed out)
. Ping to vCenter from Notebook(Host) sometimes showed fluctuation of response time. Is it the root cause?? I wish I don't think so.
vCenter Server Appliance Image
Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit 6.1.7601, Service Pack 1(8108 MB)
Assigned IP address (STATIC)
ESXi_1 : 172.17.9.10
ESXi_2 : 172.17.9.20
vCenter : 172.17.9.100
Notebook : 172.17.9.1
Happy New Year!!!
Thanks for commenting and really appreciated that.
I actually tried to install MS .NET Framework 3.5 SP 1 or later as below;
(1) Windows7 Home premium K(64bit) - Notebook
Windows6.1-KB958488-v6001-x64.msu (Cant be installed, Message popped up that it cant be installed in this system)
(2)Winodows7 Enterprise K (32bit) - VM
Windows6.1-KB979900-x86.msu (Cant be installed, Message popped up that it cant be installed in this system)
Two kinds of try-out led me to get same result.... same error message from vSphere Client.
///[Could Not Connect:vSphere Client could not connect to "172.17.9.100".]-(The operation has timed out)///
If any suggestion for resolving, please let me know anytime!
1- Did you have already configured your vCenter Appliance using the web management interface?
2 - If step 1 is ok, did you check your firewall? because if you are able to ping your vCenter, i think it is a firewall issue. You can test the vSphere Web client too.
