    Default Still having issues loading Zimbra applicance under ESXi 5.1

    Just that really - I load the .ovf template as instructed in the instructions using the default settings and then all I get is a flashing cursor.

    Powering the VM off and on has no effect and neither does deleting and re--loading.

    If it matters this is an ML110 G7 server with 32GB of RAM and 1.5TB Raid 5 94 x 750GB SAS ) seem by ESXi 5.1 as one drive

    Are there any settings to check?

    The ESXi server it can "see" the domain controllers here , the gateway and its own domain entry

    All help would be good before we move on to Open Exchange

    This is a user supported forum, if and nobody knows how to help, most won't respond. I use ESXi 5 free for my Zimbra install, but I've never delt with the Zimbra appliance, so I can't help either.

    Sure but two things.......

    1) We seem to be having issues really early in the install which is frustrating - the .ovf file loads and messages flash through the console and then the terms and conditions are then supposed to scroll through - but they do not - there must be some type of condition not satisfied in our domain or other part of our ESXi install somewhere but where? Our other VM's - one Ubuntu one Windows - are fine

    2) We have had one response from the Zimbra "staff" team in four weeks of a "how can I help" type - given we were were going to pay for this software as you can imagine we are reviewing that decision

    So looks like we are moving on

    This sort of rings a bell. Something to do with ESXi 5 not supporting IDE. Having to manually convert the disk. I think I have a document tacked up on my cubicle wall at work. I'll see I can find it tomorrow.

    This is the KB article that I've followed in the past

    This is a VMware ESX issue, not a Zimbra issue, therefore I'd suggest you're posting in the wrong place. Open Exchange is a chocolate teapot as well so good luck with that
