I have installed this ova on my vmworkstation 12.5 (windows) and get the below network error during boot. No network connectivity. Tried both vmxnet3 & e1000 with same results. Any idea's?
I've seen this in the past, it's the virtural nic name IIRC. There are a couple of ways to fix it, change all the names to the new nic name (ens160 or ens192, etc). I've added some kernel boot options in the past, too.
Have a look at this:
Hope this helps!
This is aweomse, thanks! Any chance you could post the file-hash each time it's updated? Best assupmtion is that I just had a corrupt download but it would be nice to cross reference with the hash (downloaded twice today because the first one wasn't deploying in vmware due to a mismatch)
The hash is already part of the OVA. and Ova is a tar of .ovf, .vmdk, and .mf. the .mf is a plain text file that contain the hashes of the .ovf and .vmdk files, so it is internally validated. hence, the OVA is so much better than an OVF that requires manual hash validation. VMWare will warn you if you launch a corrupt OVA, but will not warn you if you try to launch a corrupt OVF/VMDK .
if you look for my post above in this thread on 9-12-2018, I shared an OVA that was made for ESX 5.5 (HW Version 10) or higher. See this article for more detail on the VMWare Hardware Version compatibilty: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2007240
