Give PMM an IP address running on ESX

dazzla76dazzla76 EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner

I am trying to setup PMM (1.1.5) as a virtual appliance running on VMware ESX.

I need to assign the machine a static IP address but as far as i can see ESX doesn't give the option of assigning the IP address.

Some appliances take you through a wizard, others just get you to log in using the console and bring up a network adapter manually.

I understand you can manage the networking of the applicance externally when using VMWare workstation or virtualbox but this isn't the case with ESX.

Is there a default password for the root account on the box I could use? or is there another way of assigning a static IP address.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Darren,

    We don't have any default user/password due to security reasons, but CentOS 7 has a workaround:
    1. When booting into Grub, press e to modify boot parameter
    2. replace quiet by systemd.debug-shell in the linux16 line
    3. press Ctrl+x
    4. wait for three minutes
    5. press Ctrl+Alt+F9
    anyway, may be situation can be improved, I created the ticket feel tree to add any comments to it.
