I have a PowerEdge R610 with Virtualization enabled in the BIOS (Version 6.6.0) but I have the deploy XOA every time after I reboot the host machine. I’m wondering if I there is a setting missing I need in the BIOS or if XCP-NG has to be installed on the host machine with some advanced parameter.
If I run grep --color vmx /proc/cpuinfo on the host machine (R610), nothing comes back even though I have virtualization enabled in the BIOS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Does the VM start up? What is the error message on that VM that does not start?
I can’t access the Xen Orchestra at all through the IP (says host is not reachable) and I can’t ping it either. I have to go back to the Host IP and run the Quick Deploy after each reboot of the XCP-NG host.
I wasn’t sure if it’s a special setting in the Dell PowerEdge R610 (I enabled virtualization in the BIOS) that needs to be set or something special I have to do during the XCP-NG install on the R610 for vmx.
Do you have XOA installed directly on the server or do you have XCP-NG installed and XOA running on XCP-NG as a virtual machine?
Normally you would have XCP-NG installed on the physical hardware and then run XOA as a Virtual machine ontop of XCP-NG
If XCP-NG is installed then does that boot and can you access the menus / command line?
would be a good place to start and see if it’s listing loads of XOA installs. Maybe the IP address is changing every time?
Thanks for your help. There were a number of XOA’s running.
Some of the XOA’s had a static IP but weren’t working correctly for some reason.
I edited the interfaces file and I’m fine now after reboots.
Excellent, glad it worked for you.
