VCSA install - Unable to save IP settings

Jump to solution

Trying to install latest VCSA  7.0.1 trial in lab under VM Workstation but getting "Unable to save IP settings" during the set up phase no matter what I do.

VM is allocated 2 x Intel Core i7-10700, 11.7 GB memory. Its got a static IP and bridged to the local network which has a DNS server which I am confident is working because I can see the lookups and replies.

Wanting to get a lab running for NSX-T 3.0. Relatively new to this.

Thanks.

...as I believe that's the version I downloaded on the 15th Dec (version: 7.0.1-17004997).  So this fix still appears valid for now...

I changed the dhcp setting via the shell in the systemd network file...  I then lost my connection to the shell and was unable to shell back into it - went to the console and dcui and tried to turn dhcp back off, tried various thing, finally reset it, when it came back up and I still couldn't get connected via shell, I figured start over, but back to the browser and managment port 5480 and low and behold it continued on.  This is installing under a physical esxi host into a new vsan cluster... just wanted to chip in - Don't give up!
