FDE + VMware ESXi 5

Now I've followed this doco:

Novell Documentation

However I'm yet to come across a combination that works. It's not for any sort of production use, but handy for testing policies.

Has anyone come across a combo that works?

I've tried the following (plus the default):

[VMware, Inc.,VMware Virtual Platform]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=VMware, Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=VMware Virtual Platform
;KICKSTART=FAST

[VMware, Inc.,VMware Virtual Platform]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=VMware, Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=VMware Virtual Platform
KICKSTART=KEXEC
KERNEL=/boot/bzImage-acpi

[VMware, Inc.,VMware Virtual Platform]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=VMware, Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=VMware Virtual Platform
KICKSTART=KEXEC

[VMware, Inc.,VMware Virtual Platform]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=VMware, Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=VMware Virtual Platform
KICKSTART=BIOS
KERNEL_PARAM=pci=snb-enable-ahci-to-legacy


It basically sticks at the PBA screen. Similar to what I previously exeprienced when I failed to read the doco (which included an example for the model of laptop I was targeting :rolleyes: )
