ESX 6.0 is still supported by VMWare until March 12th, 2020
I have seen this issue/message with installations of ESXi on older server hardware that was not compatible with the vmx-12 drivers.
i'll see what can options there are to support this.
Is https://paloaltonetworks.box.com/s/davuvo65k727nm7feuug0d783zo6fjx8 the latest download for the tool? I've been searching around the site for 20 minutes now and this is the only link I can find to download expedition.
There was a post on 4/15 from sjanita saying there is a link for "Get the tool OVA" on https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Expedition-Migration-Tool/ct-p/migration_tool but that just takes me to a listing of the expedition forums.
It seems like the new landing page has no simple "get the tool" button. I think it is temporary until they redesign the page and make a simpler way to download. but for now if the download link works for you; use it and update to the latest build.
As the creator of this thread, and the unofficial OVA's, you really should use the official OVA now available by the Expedition team. That being said, I am still updating my OVA for my team since I needed to support older VM instances and the OS/Expedition would be current upon instantiation. I will be moving them to S3 soon as I no longer have access to box. I will update the links once they are moved to their new home.
Again, not supported or recommended since there are official images now.
You are right that the dowload link was .not available for a while. But it is back now.
Also, I have some extra good news to bring you. We have created a installer Script that would set up an Expedition instance on a newly clean Ubuntu 16.04 Server VM.
So, there should be no issues for you to create a new image with your VMWare restrictions and, on that, run the script to get all the services requried for Expedition.
If everything goes smooth, we will post a message with the instructions during next week.
I forgot about you in his thread.
Well, the script is already available, and you may not know, but you already have it if you downloaded an Expedition update recently.
We will make the script also available to download by itself, of course.
So, the script is in
You will find in that folder two files. One is initSetup.sh. The second is databases.tgz
You need them both.
