  • Install ESXi, what's next?

    After installing ESXi, what shld i do next?

    I search several website, but it does not show me any steps which i can follow. And i am quite clueless of what to do next.

    I have a problem which i encounter:

    When i inside the yellow & grey, i try to go into configure management network mode.


    I got 2 options.

    (1) Yes, Reset
    (2) Cancel

    I choose the (1), then it get me back to the yellow & grey box again.
    If i choose (2), it also get me back to the yellow & grey box.

    I could not edit the hostname and IP address.

    What shld i do? and i not sure if i did it correctly not.

    Can anyone help me.

    Thanks! =)

    Are you asking how to create Virtual Machines once you have ESXi installed?
    What is the goal of your project?

    My advice has no warranties. Follow at your own risk.

        Your ESXi symptoms are the same as I had, only 2 options when trying to configure the network, Reset to Factory and Cancel. The problem was ESXi didn't want to use my motherboard network controller. I found a site that listed compatible network cards. Buying and installing one of the suggested network cards resolved the problem for me.

        I noticed the site I had found and some other great information are included on this forum in a previous post (with links) by jasonboche:

        If you read through his post and follow the links I'm betting it will help you out. Best of luck with your setup.
