Unable to Log in after successfully deploying 11.5 VSA on VMware ESXi 5.5u1 ?

Hi,

 

I'm having difficulties in log in to the VSA appliance (VSA_OVF_11.5.00.0669) from my HP CMC with the following error:

I have make sure that the eth0 is configured to have one IP address within the same VLAN as the ESXi host and pingable from my laptop where I install the the CMC as follows:

Any kind of assistance and help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

I still cannot add it into the CMC after several reboot of the appliance.

 

Here's the screenshot of the appliance on the vSphere console:

HP Product is very difficult to deploy and to understand, even for POC.

why are there two NICs on the VSA?  You should only have one.  Did you add the second?

 

 

Usually this is a network problem.  Have you tried connecting your computer with CMC onto the same subnet as the VSAs?  It shouldn't be required, but it can help with troubleshooting so you know if the problem is on the subnet or external.  if you can ping the VSA, you should be able to log in to a new VSA without an issue unless you ran into some error during setup, but the fact that you can show the network setting page on the VSA seems to imply that the VSA itself is functioning correctly.

oikjn,

 

I don't know, I didn't add the vNIC myself. I guess it is comes with two vNIC, one formanagement interface and one for iSCSI traffic ?

 

Yes I have, the laptop and the PRODESXi01 also the PRODVSA01-VA ip address is pingable from my laptop.

Hi

two NICs are configured by default but only ISCSI network is in use 

don't configure the second NIC use only the ISCSI network

and login from there

Hi

you must use the ISCSI network and login to VSA through that network

you can install the CMC on a server with ISCSI network or create the ISCSI

network with default gateway and then you can access it from anywhere.

a VSA or any lefthand can have only one IP address.

ok, so in this case, do I just do the following:

 

  1. configure eth0 with the IP address and Gateway
  2. leave eth1 with no IP address
  3. add two more vNIC VMXNet3 as the iSCSI on the VSA as the iSCSI ports

 

after that how do I connect or make the VSA manageable through the CMC ?

Hi

you manage the VSA by connecting to the IP adress 

you gave to ETH0.
