Re: VXrail initial setup error

Check /var/log/marvin/tomcat/logs/marvin.log.

ssh into VxRail Manager and verify DNS accessibility:

# nslookup

server 10.10.10.Y

www.google.com

Another way:

add the DNS IP in /etc/resolv.conf

and verify it:

# nslookup google.com

If this is OK, check if the Default Gateway in JSON/VxRailManager UI is correct.

Re: VXrail initial setup error

See EMC KB 458852 for default password.

If you cannot see KB above, you don't have right to login to VxRail Manager by SSH

Re: VXrail initial setup error

Point a browser to ESXi and open VxRailManager console. You should be able to login with the credentials you tried above.

Re: VXrail initial setup error

Good to hear that

In the How To field in the SolveDesktop, you can find the procedure for changing DNS ip address for internal VCSA

Also, you can find the KB#492132

Re: VXrail initial setup error

When using embedded vCenter, the ESXi servers will point the DNS to vCenter. It is not supported to change that.

Hello ajacobsen,


So what you are saying is that when you look at the web client for the hosts within the VxRail Cluster, the DNS IP address should actually be the IP address of the Vcenter Server and NOT the actual DNS IP address?
