VMworld ESX3i Memory Stick Experiments

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

Today I finally got some quality time with ESX3i using the memory stick. I’ve been working on documenting the current usage of ESX3i beta. Unfortunately, I am not at liberty to release this document as I am covered by the restrictions of the Beta Programme and the EULA. However, I don’t think what I am about write breaches that (at least I hope not!) :-)

Anyway, it states very clearly on the ESX3i packaging/release notes that the ESX3i Beta is NOT yet VirtualCenter 2.0.2 aware. I can confirm this is the case because I gave it a try. Although I got through the “Add Host” wizard – the process does not complete and ends with “The host type is not supported, or was added to a cluster but does not support clustering”.

As result this currently means I am limited to managing the ESX3i host using the Vi Client that comes with ESX3i web-welcome-page.
