Hello all!


I have a trouble which confuse me a lot.


I tried to install 2 different versions of CUCM 7 (7.0 and 7.1) on my ESXi 5.

I used: 1 CPU, 3GB of RAM, 160 GB of HD, SCSI LSI Logic Parallel


and every attempt was stopped by Critical Error:


The installation has encountered a unrecoverable internal  error. For futher assistance report the following information to your  support provider.


Command
"/usr/local/bin/base_scripts/pmNormalizeGeneric/tmp/ipmWorkFile" has exceeded timed threshold of 90 seconds


The System will now halt.


I try to install the lab for preparing to the lab.

Can you tell me where I'm wrong?

Hi


Some versions of 7.x won't install in VMware... however they usually report a hardware incompatibility.


Did you specify a valid NTP server during the install?? You'll often see errors like that in VMware if you don't have one, and it's not enforced/tested during install like in v8.

Hi Sergey,


There is a defect which talks about this error:


http://tools.cisco.com/Support/BugToolKit/search/getBugDetails.do?method=fetchBugDetails&bugId=CSCsg78450


CSCsg78450            Bug Details


Install fails when pmNormalizeGeneric exceeds 90 second threshold


Symptom:
Install fails with an error about /usr/local/bin/base_scripts/pmNormalizeGeneric has exceeded timed threshold



Conditions:
This  happens when there is a media error on the DVD that prevents reading  the DVD.  We have also seen it happen during an network outage when  installing over then network.



Workaround:
Please  try a different DVD or CD drive.  Or, if installing over the network  please review all firewall, MTU, NAT or other applicable settings.


Worth a try.


Regards,

Harmit.
