Thread: Install on VMware ESXi 4.1

    Install on VMware ESXi 4.1


    I'm trying to deploy the VMware-appliance "shinken-vm-0.5.ovf" on an ESXi 4.1 host. Of some reason it won't work. I get the error-message "vmx-06 Unsupported hardware" when I try to select the ovf-file.

    Do you have any idea what this could be?

    We faced the same problem.
    As fas as I remember the SysAdmin had to use a VMware conversion tool.
    The explanation was (not sure) that the vm was created on a workstation with specific harware (p2v ?).
    I will give you more details when he will come back from holliday.

    Anyway, on this VM, after using the Nicolargo script to upgrade to the latest version of shinken, Nagvis and Ninja are broken.

    Maybe the omd distro may be the safer way to install shinken. I have to give a try.
