ZFS Nexenta for esxi: cannot install napp-it

Hi,

I have nexenta installed on a hp proliant NL40.
I would like to install napp-it, I cannot when I login via root
wget -O - www.napp-it.org/nappit | perl => it says command unknown or wrong

When I login via admin, it shows this

admin@Nexenta:~$ wget -O - www.napp-it.org/nappit | perl
--13:55:24--  http://www.napp-it.org/nappit
           => `-'

But it is not installed: page http://ipofmyserver:81 shows nothing.

Please advise.

Yes, I've seen some weird things happening with wget.

We usually use the following commands:-

wget http://www.napp-it.org/nappit -O nappit.pl

this download and saves the installer as nappit.pl, this file should be approx 26k

and then chmod 777 nappit.pl

su (to root).

and then run

from

cd /$HOME
perl /export/home/admin/nappit.pl

this will then run the perl scripts and install nappit...

BUT....there does seem to be an issue with the current detection routines in step 1a, which states using napp-it 0.8!

No idea what you mean by that, what it implies or how I should correct, please advise on that.

you will need Napp-it 0.8 to install on Nexenta!

This year 0.9 has been released, which does not support Nexenta!

hence the message, which states use 0.8!

Actually I did, but tried it a second time, result is the same:

---
step 1a: check os, setup napp-it or updating to the most current version now
please wait uname -a: SunOS Nexenta 5.11 NexentaOS_134f i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris


NexentaCore is supported up to napp-it 0.8 - use napp-it 0.8!!

that setup file is NOT 0.8!

looks like 0.9!

tested this afternoon and confirmed.

Ok, then I must have done something wrong. Will recheck & post the steps I took.

Ok, worked fine now!
Note: don't see much added value in nappit (for a newbie) versus Nexenta though.

The Nexenta GUI is very good.
