We were getting the following error at the summery tab on each ESXi host .

  • ESXi host shows the error:

    ESXi Shell for the Host has been enabled

  • ESXi host shows the error:

    SSH for the host has been enabled

Go the solution from this KB. Hope this helps.



Just a quick solution on a error while I was installing vMa 5 . The ovf was deployed ok but while trying to power the vMa on , it was coming up with the following error on the screen .

“Power On virtual machine <VM name> Cannot initialize property ‘ vami.DNS0.vSphere_Man- agement_Assistant_(vMA)’ , since network ‘<network name>’ has no associated IP pool configuration.”

Solution :

– Edit the vMA virtual machine’s properties .

– go to Options, vApp Options and select disable.

– Acknowledge the warning and click OK to close the VM properties.

-Start vMa . It should be ok now.
