    unable to invoke installation due to vcsa is not ready check if rpm installation is completed

    acatic Novice

      Good day, one and all.

       

      I'm trying to set up an ESXi small lab (2 x 8GB PC towers).  VCSA VM has been spun up, as well as a domain controller VM.  From the DC, I browse to https://vcsavm:5480 and go through the setup steps.  After a long time of it sitting on 'Waiting for RPM Installation to finish (% done.)', it eventually concludes with 'unable to invoke installation due to vcsa is not ready check if rpm installation is completed'.  ('% Done' never features an actual number, so I figure it doesn't even kick off.)

       

      Yes, I know, even the smallest VCSA requirements state 10GB RAM.  However, having made it this far, I hoped that I had passed the 'hardcoded' minimum.  Also, looking at ESXi resources, both CPU and RAM are lightly used thus far. 

       

      Please advise if and how I may proceed with this lab setup.
