How to install VMware ESXi 5.0 as remote SSH enabled.

Written by Xaus Xavier Nadal on September 28th, 2011


Today we show how to install VMware ESXi 5.0 (I'm going to do on a vmware workstation 8.0 from which it is possible to install it without problems and without having to make any special configuration, this facility is called nested vmware) but the ISO from the link above VMware ESXi 5.0 is fully installable on a physical server, which is where it should be if this were not a testing environment.

Also explain how Enable Remote SSH Shell at end of article.

Above all we must check that the machine we are going to install is compatible with this version of OS.

You can read the following article to learn how.

We start the machine with the botable CD or USB with the stored image and directly see the following screen will disappear in a 8 seconds unless you press any key. (I like to always press the cursor keys are not accepted as such if you press enter or space could be clicking on an option) ... well let the verbiage and the task.

VMware ESXi 5.0_1

This version we're installing is the last known date 08 / 24 / 11 so if you have a newer version installed and want to make a little article for the blog you know that you can leave a comment on this article or send an email to following address [Email protected]

The installation of the product and you will see the following screen:

VMware ESXi 5.0_2

Click on Enter if you read the first part of the article and your machine is compatible with this version of operating system.

VMware ESXi 5.0_3

click on F11 to accept the EULA.

Scan the computer for devices and to see the following window:

VMware ESXi 5.0_

If the information is correct and you want to install the operating system on this disc pressing on EnterIf you are otherwise not very sure if this is really where you want to install disk you can click on F1 for more details on the route.

Please use your arrow keys to select the language of your keyboard and click on Enter.

VMware ESXi 5.0_6

Write the password de root you please (I recommend you is difficult but that you can remember or at least a Make use password management program as Keepas to store the username and password in a safe).

The pulsar tecla Enter.

The system will scan the computer for additional information

VMware ESXi 5.0_7

This screen has appeared and we're setting up the server on a virtual machine (as I said before is only a test machine on vmware workstation and can ignore the error) Even if we do well we can resolve this error: Editing the configuration the virtual machine and in the web of processor spike mark the following: Virtualize or AMD-V/RVI VT-x/EPT. Press F9 y enter de nuevo. A mí no me ha funcionado (supongo que mi hardware no es compatible, pero la idea es esta).

In your case if the machine is physically should not receive any errors.

VMware ESXi 5.0_8

Click on F11 to begin installation.

VMware ESXi 5.0_9

Press Enter to restart

We already have our 5.0 ESXi installed. A has been easy?

Now we must connect only through a client VMware vSphere if you have or directly accessed via http to the ip that has given us our DHCP to download or manage the program from there.

VMware ESXi 5.0_11

The team will take ip from DHCP, but if not, after booting you can press F2 for your customization (We know the root password).

From this window you can also Enable Remote SSH Shell to esxi 5.0 (to connect via Putty for example). from the menu and enabling Troubleshotting
