[LINUX] Deploy CentOS 6.10 x86_64 on VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5

Deploy CentOS 6.10 x86_64 on VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5


--The network address is --The gateway is --DNS server is --VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 can be used

My policy (very personal)

--When installing CentOS, net install. --The image data acquisition destination used for netinstall should be ftp.riken.jp. RIKEN, Banzai. --LANG should be en_US.UTF-8. --The keyboard layout should be jp106.

Create a new virtual machine

For the configuration, I chose Custom. image.png

Enter name and location

Enter the virtual machine name as you like. I made it ZabbixServer4.0LTSonCentOS6.10x86_64. In the verification environment, you will want to find the target virtual machine at a glance, so it is better to write the purpose, function name / OS, and 6432bit rather than entering the host name. image.png

Storage selection

The image has only local storage, so I chose that. image.png

Select virtual machine version

For the virtual machine version, select the latest version (ver8) that can be selected with ESXi 5.5. With the current latest ESXi (as of February 19, 2020), it will be 6.7 series and will be in the support category.

Guest OS selection

For Linux, selectCentOS 4/5/6 (64-bit). image.png

CPU selection

Set as appropriate in consideration of the resource status of the physical environment you are using. image.png

Memory settings

Set the memory size. This time, the purpose was to set up a small Linux server, so I made it about 2GB. 512MB might have been fine. image.png

Network selection

Select the appropriate network accordingly. For the adapter, select VMXNET3. It should be selected by default. image.png

SCSI controller settings

Set LSI Logic SAS. image.png

Disk selection

Select Create a new virtual disk. image.png

Burn disc

Set the HDD size. This time, it was a small size, so I made it chic. Depending on the case, judge whether it is thin or chic. image.png

Advanced options

As per the message, there is no particular change. image.png

Ready to finish

Nothing in particular. You can see the setting summary so far. If you check Edit virtual machine settings before completion at the bottom, you can see the screen of the following image. image.png

Virtual machine properties

Mount the ISO for netinstall. Also, FDD is not used, so delete it from the device. (* This part is my favorite.) image.png

Start of installation of CentOS

Select ʻInstall or upgrade an existing system. It is a timed expression, and if left unchecked, ʻInstall or upgrade an existing system will be selected. image.png

Media test

When it detects bootable media (ISO media), you will be asked if you want to test it. Do not check. image.png

Language selection

As I wrote at the beginning, I will select English-speaking countries, so select ʻEnglish`. image.png

Keyboard selection

As I wrote at the beginning, select jp106. image.png

Specify installation media

Since we will do netinstall, specify ʻURL`. The reason why I personally like this is that CentOS starts by inheriting the set IP as it is, so you can move to ssh connection as it is. image.png

TCP / IP settings

Disable IPv6 and manually configure IPv4. That is, check out ʻEnable IPv6 Support, check in ʻEnable IPv4 Support, and check in Manual Configuration. image.png

IP settings

As mentioned at the beginning, set up the network. image.png

URL setting

Specify the URL of RIKEN's ftp server. image.png

Image loading

The Image is loaded. At this time, if it cannot be loaded, check the network (IP, GW, DNS). After that, double-check the URL. image.png

GUI-based installation wizard started

Press Next. image.png

Specify the installation destination

Select either a local disk or a disk on your network. This time, it's a local disk. So select Basic Storage Device. image.png

Format confirmation

You will be asked if you want to format the specified disk. Format. image.png

Host name setting

Specify the host name as appropriate. image.png

Time zone setting

Since the server will be Japan, specify Tokyo, Asia. image.png

Setting root password

Set the root password. If your password strength is low or if it violates your password policy, you will be asked "What about it? Do you do it? Really?" image.png

Partition settings

It will automatically create a partition, but it will determine the scope of its application. This time, it is a new disk, so specify ʻUse All Space. If you want to see the partition layout, check Review and modify partitioning layout` before proceeding. image.png

Partition write confirmation

Is it okay to write a partition? I am asked, so I will proceed as it is. That is, press Write changes to disk. image.png

Select default installation

I hate GUI so I try to make it CLI based. However, Minimal can be disastrous, so select Web Server. image.png

Start installation

The installation has started. let's wait. image.png


accomplished. image.png
