I have managed to boot the virtual appliance, I was able to connect to the virtual appliance through a web browser, login and configure the appliance as in Network, system etc.. But, the system is NOT able to connect to the embedded database at all. It returns a blank pop-up window prompting the user to click on "ok" and status remains unconfigured.
I have reinstalled the appliance few times but I am unsuccessful.. .
In order to be able to run a nested 64-bit VM you need to configure the virtual ESXi host's CPU settings properly, i.e. enable "Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI." for the ESXi VM. see Running Nested VMs
Thats what I did to bring up the VM but I am not able to connect to the embedded database and start vcenter server.
Has anyone faced this issue?
