Creating VMs on VMWare ESX6 with hardware version 11
Create vRouter VMs on VMWare ESX6 with hardware version 11 and avoid generating error messages.
When creating vRouter VMs on VMWare ESX6 with hardware version 11, you may encounter the following messages that are periodically generated on the console:
"INIT: Id "TO" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes".
To avoid generating these messages, you need to add a serial interface to the VM when creating it manually or you can add it later.
To add a serial interface to the vRouter VM, follow these steps:
- From the vRouter Virtual Machine Properties window, select the Hardware tab and then click on Add... as shown:
- From the Add Hardware window, choose Serial Port as the selected port type to be added to the VM as shown:
- From the VM Properties window, the new serial port is shown being added under the Hardware devices:
If the OVA file is being used to create the vRouter VM, the following needs to be added into the Virtual Hardware section of the OVF definitions:
<Item ovf:required="false"> <rasd:AutomaticAllocation>true</rasd:AutomaticAllocation> <rasd:ElementName>Serial port 1</rasd:AutomaticAllocation> <rasd:InstanceID>10</rasd:InstanceID> <rasd:ResourceSubType>vmware.serialport.device<rasd:ResourceSubType> <rasd:ResourceType>21</rasd:ResourceType> <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="yieldOnPoll" vmw:value="true" /> </Item>
