Using the Ultimate Deployment Appliance to test ESX kickstart scripts – Part II

In Part 2 of this series we are going to deploy our virtual ESX host in a VMware Workstation 6.5 virtual machine. We will utilize the UDA setup that we created in the first part to this series. If you haven’t setup your UDA you will want to do so before proceeding. Make sure you check out the sample deployment scripts available on our download page. In this example I am deploying VMware ESX 3.5 Update 4 in VMware Workstation 6.5 build 126130.

  1. This may be off topic but I have followed your example (with my own kickstart script) and it will not work. I have an MS Active Directory Domain so I have MS DHCP. It redirects my subnet to UDA. Everything is fine until the actual install begins. UDA requests networking information; like it has not been given a DHCP address. After that, the installation does not continue. Any ideas?
