VPV Virtual Appliance on Oracle VirtualBox

Hi,

 

I'm trying to run a real basic setup of VPV on my machine, using Virtualbox

However, I can't get the networking to work, whatever option I use (Bridge, NAT etc).

When I start the VA, I get a message to run /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net in order to setup networking, but whatever settings I try to use, I cannot get a working connection externally to the Internet and from the Host to the VM.

 

does anyone have a working configuration set that he can recommend to use with Virtualbox?

Alternatively, what's the easiest way to run VPV locally as a POC?

 

Thanks,

Ran

  • Hi,

     

    I guess the unfortune answer to this is, that vPV is not supported with Oracle VirtualBox.

    You can check the Support Martix at:

     

    Access to SUMA Suport Matrix Tool:

     

    http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM323488

     

    Please read the instructions on the page. In a nutshell:

    1. download the SUMA.zip file

    2. extract it

    3. open SUMA.htm preffereable with Firefox for increased performance

     

     

    Sorry to not have a better answer

  • Marc, thanks, I gave up on the virtual appliance... and simply downloaded the Linux version

    now I have a Centos VM running, but the installation is failing with:

    vertica cannot be installed on lvm partions

     

    so I'm going back to my initial question - what's the easiest and quickest way to get VPV POC running??

  • To be more specific..

     

    Installing vertica
    Initialize action for com.hp.ov.installer.ovapp.core.ActionRunner@5d64db48

    To complete installation and configuration of the cluster,
    run: /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica


    vertica cannot be installed on LVM partions.
    Install vertica failed.

  • You need to either deploy the VA onto vCenter (not virtualbox), or install vPV on a centos linux with no lvm disks.

     

    Simpler of the 2 is get yourself a vCenter (most likely the vcenter you wish to monitor from vPV) and deploy the VA.

  • it's not that simple to load a VA into a vCenter that is used accross the organization.
