I'm trying to install APIC-EM for testing purposes on ESXi with slow disk. The installation fails because it takes longer time than 3600s.
Is there a way how configure (hack,...) longer timeout?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you are installing 188.8.131.5283, here're the requirements from ESXI host:
|Server Image Format||ISO|
|VMware ESXi Version||5.1/5.5/6.0|
|Virtual CPU (vCPU)||Minimum Required: 6, Recommend: 12|
|CPU (speed)||2.4 GHz|
|Memory||64 GB [ For a multi-host deployment (2 or 3 hosts) only 32GB of RAM is required for each host. ]|
|Disk Capacity||500 GB|
|Disk I/O Speed||200 MBps|
you can get away with slower disk for testing purposes, but there are limits.
Most important is to have enough RAM/cpus otherwise it will never get started.
what is your disk throughput?
what RAM/CPU have you configured?
Slow disk is the only weekness of my setup. I have 64GB of RAM and 8 CPUs.
I think that I obtained number 50 during disk performance test. I was able
to install v 1.1 after several attempts. But installation of versions 1.2
and 1.3 ends always with timeout of 3600 s.
