 Is there a solution?

After you rm ,reservations you need to cd ..

You should be in /sim/dev when you run vsim_makedisks, not in /sim/dev/,disks

 

You can also accomplish the same thing by stopping at the loader on the first boot and setting these:

 

setenv bootarg.sim.vdevinit "36:14:0,36:14:1,36:14:2,36:14:3"
setenv bootarg.vm.sim.vdevinit "36:14:0,36:14:1,36:14:2,36:14:3"

You'll need to replace IDE1:1 with at least a 512GB disk first or it will eventually fill the /sim filesystem and panic.

Hi,   SeanHatfield

 

Thanks for the advice.

 

I tried it with vmware workstation and succeeded.

We will implement the installation with ESXi in accordance with the advice.
