Updating openfiler validating schema libxml perl
The second task is to configure from which hosts or networks your Openfiler installation can be accessed.You can provide individual IP-addresses for your servers or you can specify an entire network as I have done in the image below.You can do this while the virtual machine is powered on (on ESXi, not on Workstation) and Openfiler will detect them automatically.Access the from the menu on the right to manage the partitions for your disks. Click the hyperlink for the device to add a partition.We now have the NFS-volume configured and must create a share that we can make available to our ESXi-servers.Click the -tab and click the link for the NFS-volume you have just created.With this configuration all hosts in network 192.168.1.0/24 will be able to access the storage.
There is also an appliance available that you can download but the appliance is not always updated to the latest version and I had mixed results in the past with importing it into different environment.There is no need to power off the virtual machine to add the hard disks.You can add them while it's powered on in ESXi and Openfiler will also automatically detect the new disks.But I have made a short installation guide below with the most important steps highlighted.
First install the operating system on a single hard disk and then after installation is ready add hard disks that will contain your NFS and i SCSI partitions.The first task to perform is to enable the services you want to be using.
