Are you really trying to install the IaaS components on a...laptop?
You can't sync time with just any old server (or laptop for that matter), it has to function as an NTP server. In order to install vRA successfully, you need internal time synchronization between all the various components.
Thanks daphnissov. In my previous post, I installed the Management Agent installer and then setup NTP server on Windows server 2012 (IP: 10.20.252.116). Then I sync time between the vra (IP :10.20.252.115) with the NTP server. The timeoff set is only 11 second, so I think the issue probably doesn't occur from this.
In order to troubleshoot this further, we need a more complete picture of your environment that would be hosting the vRA infrastructure. Please be as detailed in its description as possible. The failure you're getting at such an early stage indicates there is something fundamental that is not working properly, and it's usually because of underlying or supporting infrastructure.
I deploy VRA virtual machine (version: VMware-vR-Appliance-220.127.116.116-5610496_OVF10_2) and IaaS host (Windows server 2012 R2 virtual machine) on host ESXi 6.0 .The host machine information is in below:
- IBM x3650 M3
- BIOS version: D6E149AUS-1.09
- Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5650 @ 2.67Ghz
VRA VM IP address: 10.20.252.115
IaaS host IP address: 10.20.252.116
Both 2 IPs can ping each other
When I power on the VRA VM , I got a warning in the picture below, but I'm no right to access to the ESXi host to modify this configure option
Did you deploy the vRA appliance through vCenter? Do you have vCenter? How many hosts? Are you running this in a nested environment? There are lots more details you didn't include here.
I deployed vra appliance on vCenter 6.0 (access via vsphere client 6). There is a cluster with 2 physical ESXi hosts (IP: 10.20.252.172 and 10.20.252.173)
Both VRA appliance (IP:10.20.252.115) and IaaS windows server component (10.20.252.116) are installed on host 10.20.252.173 (it's not nested environment )
Both VRA and IaaS VM are stored in the same datastore , use the same Adapter Type and VLAN in network connection.
The virtual machine version is 10
Which VM are you displaying in the last screenshot, the one which is 4 x 4? Is that the vRA appliance or the Windows IaaS host?
If you're still getting a failure, can you re-deploy the vRA appliance and screenshot the last step when you input the required values? Also, screenshot the wizard screens, especially where the agents check-in.
I still get trouble with this after re-deploy VRA. This is the screenshot of last step installation (I dont fill in the DNS value because I dont have domain name server to resolve VRA IP )
the VRA IP 10.20.252.115 is duplicated with another IP in system so I changed it to 10.20.252.122
And this is the configuration on agent host (IP :10.20.252.120)
and it's completely finished
If you don't have functional DNS, none of this is going to work. You must have DNS resolving both forward and reverse records to use vRA.
Issue :- Network connectivity issue in between vRA and IaaS server
Troubleshooting Steps #
1. Redeploy vRA appliance through OVA from vCenter and it will pick IP, dns, other config automatically.
2. Test Ping vRA = IaaS server and Run nslookup host-name
3. Use service account for installation of management agent which have "local administrator" access on windows server .
4. "Time Offset" should show 0 in config wizard and if it's showing something bigger number then it would be problem .
Use above three steps and issue will get resolved
