XClarity esxi image deployment

2016-11-28, 14:27 PM

We are deploying ESXi 6 (lenovo custom image) to x240 M5 nodes and get an error on deployment.


Error: Exiting OS deployment since an IP could not be configured.


The deploy status is ready in the XClarity and a static IP address is supplied as part of the deployment job. I have tried with DHCP and this fails also. See attached image for error information. The network adapters in the nodes are compatible.


Any suggestions welcome for how to get around this?

Are you using VLAN tagging? If so make sure you indicate the VLAN on the deployment page. I ran into a similar issue as I didn't realize the deployment was using the 10GB card on the x240, I had assumed it used the CMM interface to the IMM of the x240.
