Unable to install VMware tools in Openfiler 2.3

Hi Everyone,

I'm currently stuck in installing VMwaretools into my Openfiler 2.3 VM, somehow it is partially installed since i can hit the STOP and Restart guest VM button, using VMXNet 2 is ok, but my goals is to use VMXNet 3 and pvSCSI as the big disk for my openfiler 2.3 VM.

can anyone suggest me where to go from here to install the C Compiler without the internet / network ?

Thanks.

wow, thanks for the fast reply guys, this is what I've been followed but still failed: thanks for

I tried this http://itblog.rogerlund.net/2009/06/openfiler-23-on-vsphere-using-vmxnet3.html but still no effect after numerous restart.

so how does one install Openfiler in Vmware ESXi if there is no VMXNet 3 or any vNIC supported ?
The standard install of Openfiler supports other NICS out of the box.  I'm fairly sure is supports E1000 as a minimum and VMXNET2 as well - just firing one up now to check.
Openfiler definately supports E1000 as I've just installed it but it does not support VMXNET2.

E1000 is a default standard of the Intel E1000 Pro card and it is an excellent performer.

yes, you're right Jake, but somehow it should be replaced with VMXNet 3 for better performance.
I've just downloaded the .VMDK image from the website and now import it into my ESXi,

Eventhough the hardware I just upgraded to VM version 7, i still couldn't make VMXNet 3 installed, but somehow the network is working fine now out of the box with "Flexible" interface.

so in this case there is no easy way to make it VMXNet 3 in Openfiler setup from scratch ?
