I am currently trying to install a Virtual WLC (latest 7.5 release) on a VMWare ESXi 4.0, I am using the OVF template to deploy the image, but when booting the VM I am prompted with a "No operating system found" error.
Just to make sure there was no problem with the OVA file, I also downloaded the 7.4 release image, but I get the same error.
Note that I did the exact same procedure in our lab a few days ago, with the 7.5 image, BUT a ESXi 4.1, and it worked perfectly. Is there any incompatibility with ESXi 4.0? The deployment guide speaks of 4.x/5.x, but I am wondering if it was tested against 4.0 ... Unfortunately the 4.0 release is a customer deployment in production, we can´t change the VMWare version.
Are there any settings I could change on the VM to make this work?
I noticed the system creates a small ISO file (44Kb) when powering the VM on, but it disappears when powering off. Not sure if that´s the expected behavior.
Any guidelines on how to move forward would be appreciated!
When you tested, did you actually use the same ova or did you download it again? I would check the MD5 on that just to be sure and then if that passes and the ova fails to install, then I would open a TAC case to verify that ESXi 4.0 is supported or what to see if anyone has loaded the vWLC on ESXi 4.0. I have not have any customers run that version so I wouldn't know.
