idrac 7 and Vmware not working

This question is not answered

I'm trying to use the console to change some network settings on one of our esxi boxes accross town.  When I bring the console up, I can't seem to get the log in to come up so I can customize the set up.  There aren't any firewalls or anything between where I'm at and the esxi box, I'm a little perplexed as to why this isn't working.

  • Admishake,

    What are you seeing on the page instead of the login? What is it doing?

    Are you getting a certificate request?

    What browser are you using to connect?

    Lastly, have you tried changing the console setting from Java to ActiveX or vice versa to see if that allows you to connect?

    Let me know what you find.

  • When I bring up the virtual console I can see the normal ESXi screen, but when I try to interact with it, it's like it's not getting any of the commands from my keyboard.  I tried it with both firefox and IE, I tried java and active x and the active x one fails, the java one just errors out.

  • On the top of the screen for the console there are menus. Within that menu is a passthrough box, check that and let me know if they work then.
