  • New install of VMWare 3.02

    I just did a new install of vmware esx 3.02 and seemed to go pretty well. I added the ip address to the server 192.168.1.113 during the install. After the install finished the server rebooted and said i could access the server via a web browser at http:\\192.168.1.113 or press alt 1 to go to the command line.

    I went to another pc on the network and can't access the server via a web browser but i can ping it??? any help would be appreciated.

    If there is more info needed please let me know what i could add to help trouble shoot

    Re: New install of VMWare 3.02

    There is really nothing to do, it should just work after a new install, if you can ping the server.

    Did you try just typing in the IP of the server only in your web browser, like this?

    192.168.1.113

    can you open the site from another PC on your network?

    Perhaps you have an IP address conflict on your network. if you turn off the server can you still ping that IP (this happened to me last week)?

    Thanks

        did you enable or disable the firewall on ESX?

        if so, did you make sure the web service was allowed?

        telnet to the address of your ESX server on 80, like so:

        C:> telnet 192.168.242.105 (<-- you should use whatever address you assigned the server here) 80

        you should see a cursor in the upper left corner of the cmd screen, without any text or feedback. it wont do anything, but it proves that you can establish a connection to the server on port 80.

        if nothing happens, then go ahead and try to telnet on the SSH port, or 22. you should be able to get to that. if not, then verify the address and go back and check the firewall.

        you can go to the service console and temporarily disable the firewall by typing:
        #: esxcfg-firewall -allowoutgoing
        #: esxcfg-firewall -allowincoming

        the run thru the tests and try to open the console via web browser. if that solves the issue, reconfigure the firewall to allow 22, 80, and 443 for web functionality.

        to re-enable the firewall, type:
        #:esxcfg-firewall -blockincoming
        #:esxcfg-firewall -blockoutgoing

        let us know whats up.

        ***EDIT***


        good point about the 2 pNICs DavidD. for setup and testing, just utilize one pNIC for the time being. if that works out, then read the manufactures advice on either teaming the NICs or how to use them both simultaneously.

          The vmware-webAccess service isn't running.

          Log on to the ESX console as root and execute the command

          service vmware-webAccess start

            shouldn't that start by default?

              james...

              did you enable or disable the firewall on ESX? I did the standard install i didn't select it to be enabled

              When i telnet to port 80 i really get no response but when i try to ssh into the server using the same username and password "seriously" the same i get an error that states unable to authenticate.

              thanks for the help .... getting frustrated.. this seems like such a better product than MS... i want to use it...

                internal stuff: try nmap localhost to see what daemons are actually listening to what ports

                    all right here is the latest update....

                    I finally have ESX Server installed and connectivity to the box (via telnet) isn't an issue. I can telnet into the box as the root.


                    But can not get the the service console via a web browers. The vmware-webAccess service is running.

                    what else could it be??

                    I can provide screen shot of what ever is needed.

                          ok, you can get the list of listening daemons with netstat as well

                          what about the other commands?

                            You said you can connect via "telnet".

                            You really mean that you can connect via SSH, right?

                            I mean the box doesn't have telnet enabled on a clean install.

                            Did you do all the good stuff that James recommended below about the firewall config?
