        Thanks.. how long are you thinking before v1.06 is posted somewhere?  (trying to decide wether to attempt the changes you hinted to or to wait and see what the update has)

        thanks!

            Hi, I am able to install ESXi5.1 with EDA v1.05 after some tweaking for networking for EDA itself.
            The problem now is

             

            1. where are the installation logs files ? There are few cmds that don't run at all and I would like to know, if it shows some error message.

             

            Thanks

              the best way to troubleshoot unwilling commands is to remove the reboot from the ks script (perhaps i should make that an option in the interface?). it will log everything to console (press alt-F11 and alt-F12). the script itself is put in a 10-firstboot script in /etc/rc.local.d if you want to rerun it and check for console errors. other logging is put in /var/log

                Hi all,

                 

                I'm using EDA 1.0 to deploy ESX 5.0, now i want to reinstall 20+ hosts with Vsphere 5.1.

                I downloaded EDA 1.05 and started it.

                 

                I cannot configure network, it resets after few seconds, and giving me the error:

                vmsvc[737]: [ Warning ] [guestinfo] failed to get nic info

                vmsvc[737]: [ Warning ] [guestinfo] RecordRoutingInfo: Unable to collect IPv4 routing table.

                 

                I've read the post above, and tried to upgrade hardware to version 8 (did not help)

                I've removed nic, rebooted, and readded nic (rebooted) did not help.

                 

                I don't know how to login as root, because i can't get a login prompt. so I can't

                 

                Does anybody have a working version? or has a solution for my problem?

                  if you remove the NIC, you may also want to remove the persistent rules files. if you dont you'll end up with eth1, eth2 etc and all EDA scripts are built for eth0.

                  you can go either to alt-F2 and log in with root/root or go to the patch menu in eda and type 'rm /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules' from the 'exec' box.

                    Hi Brugh,

                     

                    Thank you for your answer, i could not find the key combo alt F2. your suggestion did the trick, remove network card, dit clear rules, and added network, rebooted. now the nic works en config is saved.

                     

                    So my problem is solved!

                      I'm having a problem where the copy function is not working on the kickstart editor.

                       

                      Apache is throwing a timeout on scr.php

                        yeah *cough*, that bug's been in there for a while.

                         

                        if you change line 31/32 in /var/www/eda/ajax.php from:

                        •     $a1=current($this->ar);
                        •     while (key($this->ar)!=$id) $a1=next($this->ar);

                        to

                        •     while ( ($a1=next($this->ar)) && key($this->ar)!=$id ) { }

                        all should be well again.

                              I am trying to build ESXi 5.1 Update 1 with EDA Appliance 1.05. Everytime when it is trying caching the required files I get error message "Cannot open file [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/tardisks/scsi_bnx.v01'

                               

                               

                              I am using a custom ESXi 5.1 Update 1 cd and it install fine when i try to install it from cd

                                is that from a default VMware image or from a vendor's build (HP, Dell)?

                                what do you see when you go to the 'patch' menu and type 'ls /var/lib/tftpboot/cd/esx' in the 'exec' box?

                                does that file 'scsi_bnx.v01' exist there? or anything similar?
