Wanos Out of band management
« on: April 14, 2014, 08:19:45 AM »
First of all, many thanks for the great idea. although i have not tested it yet, but it looks promising.

I have installed ESXi 5.1 on two HP desktops which have 3 physical network cards each, next i installed WANOS ova, the VM booted and i configured the IP via wanos-cfg, and i also configured the virtual switches as below;

  • Virtual switch 1: Connected to the internet router
  • Virtual switch 2: Connected to modem
  • Virtual switch 3: Connected to LAN for management

As for the virtual machine its been configured with 3 virtual e1000 nics, my problem is that the wan0 always takes the 1st vNIC which is also used for management, can i put the IP for management on the 3rd vNIC?

Hi Abdallah,

You can enable out of band management by adding the following to the end of 'sudo vi /etc/bootsync.sh':
### Out of band management
ifconfig eth2 192.168.2.200 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.2.255 up

This gives the third NIC the management address of 192.168.2.200. A specific route is added to enable the out of band management from the 192.168.0.0/16 network.

Many thanks for your detailed reply,
I'd love if you can connect tomorrow and double check our setup, a TeamViewer access to my machine is fine?
Would you please contact me directly by email and I'll hand you the logon details

Notes for anyone using this work around:

'sudo vi /opt/bootsync.sh':
### Out of band management
ifconfig eth2 192.168.2.200 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.2.255 up
