    ESXi 5.x - pre-built VMDK for unRAID

    @Socrateshappy to hear you are finally up and running! Hope you will have a smooth ride from now on, with unRAID Unraid - I've been using it for years and love it.

    Umm, I'm not sure... the USB stick? Is it configured to be made available at boot? @uldise - thoughts?

    You seem to still have a hard drive configured. Make sure only the ISO image and the USB drive are available to the VM.

    First of all, if you want to get a running system quickly, the plopkexec method would lead you there the soonest. All you need to do is to boot off the plop ISO, after getting rid of the HDD (just disconnect it from the VM) and adding the USB drive. You should have a running Unraid in no time. If you want to solve for the VMDK you now have, then... Ah. To the boot drive. From what I gather from your posts (and the "find" above) it is not mounted after boot. Mount it: Find the device (/dev/sdX for some value of X, which is NOT currently mounted - the one mounted is the flash drive. You can check which one is currently mounted by "df"). Find what X is (either a or b), then - mkdir /mnt/tmp mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt/tmp ls /mnt/tmp This is where you copy the bz* files into (from the flash). After copying, reboot.

    That's good advice too.

    As we are a bit out of sync: This (quoted) is good. Unraid needs some more driver modules that it wants to read from a USB drive. What is left to do now is to copy the bz* files from the boot drive you created (where you installed the latest version) into the USB drive you prepared earlier (overwrite), and then attach the USB to the VM and reboot. At that point you should see the network, i.e. get a proper IP address and be able to connect to your server via HTTP.

    Can you describe what you've done to get to this point, and how you see the ui page (if the browser still shows "refused")?

    I need to go, so once you locate the bz* files, you can do this Build the USB with the bootable Unraid, latest version, make_bootable, as the doc instructs. Make it available to the VM. copy to it, under its root directory, the bz* files (overwriting similarly named files on the flash drive) Reboot, while the USB is available to the VM. By the way, once you ran the "emhttpd" command from a few messages ago (only once!...), you should have been able to connect to your unraid server from a web browser. Could you?

    Can you find files by the names of bzroot, bzimage, bzmodules and bzfirmware in your vmdk? They usually live under the mounted /boot but seems like your vmdk is different.

    The USB drive should be built with the same unraid version you have in the VMDK.

    The command runs the unraid main management tasks, including the web server, in the background. So you should then be able to navigate your browser to the tower.

    Bingo. Do you have an Unraid flash drive attached to the VM? You'd need to have it to run Unraid properly. As a temp band aid, just for testing, run this command: /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & and see if you have progress.

    Okay you definitely do not have a web server running. To cut on the back and forth, please post output of: ps auxww | egrep "emhttp|nginx" plus, your "go" script (lives under /boot/config - you can just "cat /boot/config/go" )

    Okay @Socrates, this implies that your server does get an IP address (etc.) from the DHCP server. You are connecting to it via SSH. What does not seem to run is the web server (nginx). "Connection Refused" means we got to the box, but the applicable port (80 by default for a web client) is not open (listened to). At any rate, can you do, on the shell you connect to via putty, run this and post the output: netstat -apn | grep LISTEN | grep 80

    Check if unRAID (sorry, Unraid) sees the NIC and has a driver for it. Can you paste the output of: ifconfig -a and ethtool -i eth0
