Hi all,

not sure if I'm posting on right forum, so apologies if wrong one.

I'm trying to evaliate infoblox, and I've downloaded the express version from the site. I'm using vmware player 5.0.0 build-812388, and when I try to open the .vmx file, the last msg I get on the screen when it's booting up is:

"infoblox system initializing...."

"Starting services..."

 

and thats it... nothing else. I've tried using vmware ws 9.00 as well but I get the same thing.

Any ideas ?

thanks

I am testing IPAM Express and download the appliance from the website. After installing VMware Player 6.0.0 and booting into the appliance all that I get is Starting Services and sit there. Is there any issue with the appliance or special configuration that needs to done before it is actually import it into VMware Player?

Hi Mel,

I think this is a known issue.  Can you  give me a screen shot?
Also can you give me the filename that you downloaded.  This will help me confirm which version you have.

Thanks, Allison

Thanks Mel.  I couldn't find it easily either, but I think it is the "picture" icon on the toolbar (screenshot attached).  Or you can just email it to me at:  amarks@infoblox.com.  Thanks!

Hi, i also have the same issue.

Could you fix it?  I've already double check the version i'm using and it's the last one available.

Any troubleshooting options are accepted.

 

Best Regards

Francisco.-

I'm having the same problem as what someone reported way back in 2012!  I clicked on the ".vmx" file, Vmware started up the InfobloxIPAMExpress virtual machine, Kernel loaded, Infoblox system initialized, then I got "Starting services..." and it just stops and hangs there.  I've waited almost 15 minutes, but nothing more shows up on the console.  I'm on a Mac Book Pro running OSX 10.10.5 with VMware Fusion 7.1.2 .    Cheers -- Marnix A.  van Ammers

I have had similar issues attempting to run IPAM Express under Fusion on OS X as well. Running the latest version under VMplayer on Windows does seem to have better success.

 

As an alternative option, depending on what you are looking to leverage or test out you could also checkout the testdrive on AWS which is full featured:

Check out our new Tech docs website at http://docs.infobox.com for latest documentation on Infoblox products

I've just been wondering about this, I am sure I read somewhere that the IPAM Express appliance uses DHCP to obtain an IP address, are you sure you have VMware's internal DHCP server set up to give out addresses to the virtual NIC that the appliance is using?

 

It's just a hunch but maybe it's hanging because its trying to get an address from DHCP?
