vsphere replication won’t correctly install

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,


My plateform :

esxi 6.5.0 Update 1 (Build 5969303)



My problem :

I have an issu with vsphere replication

I have deployed the OVF with the 5 files (cert, mf, ovf and 2 vmdk), during the configuration I choose the ipv4 static address, then I assign the NTP, DNS, Gateway, IP and Netmask (not the domain and the domain search) and put a password with 8 characters.
The OVF is deploying good.


When I start the OVF, I have a lot of error messages like “Could not obtain OVF environment from the RPC Tool/Guest Tools no value found” / “Initialization error: no element found: line1, column 0”

And I finally see the blue pages that telling me “NO NETWORKING DETECTED”

I try to logging but the root user won’t loggin…

I’ve tried to reset the root password (by mounting the “/” during the boot) but even with this, I can’t loggin with root to configure the network.


Can anybody help me ?


Thanks a lot
