Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 Express OVA failing to boot up
Hi all, i'm wondering if you can help me, i'm trying to deploy Cisco Prime Infrastructure in a lab envrionment but it's not working correctly.
I've deployed "PI-VA-188.8.131.52.87-Express.ova" to a VMware ESXI 5.1U2 hypervisor with 2x AMD 8128HE CPUs, 96GB RAM, ASUS KGPE-D16 motherboard. The installation works fine, I can answer all the questions and enter the IP address. Once the system reboots, it hangs at the following screen:
"Kernel direct mapping tables up to 340000000 @ 10000-1c000" is the last thing I see
Interestingly at this point I can actually ping the VM... I cant connect to the managemnet console on HTTPS though :(
I did find some related info on a blog https://deekayen.net/kernel-alive-lock which mentions booting with "noapic", however when I try to press "P" on the grub boot loader it prompts me to enter a password which I dont know! My normal admin passwords arent working.
Any help to ge tthis running would be greatly appreciated
