Wording from MarkVM32's post on vmware.com (but i have exact same issue)

I have been trying to install the Nexus 1000V with the java gui installer. Everything seems to work fine up until the end when it says establshing SSH Connection and then validating install. It looks like it finishes but then I get an error saying "timeout reached. Something went wrong. Please check the logs files at C:\users\temp etc.."

 
I can't figure out what the problem is. Has anyone ran into this before or know what mighrt cause it? I know I have all the correct port groups setup for the VSM. it connectes to vCenter, installes the VM from the OVA file and everything else just fine. It is just at the end of the installation when i get this error.


Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks,
David

Maybe the java app is the problem and not so much what you are telling it to do. Would you be able to attempt the initial installation via CLI? I've never actually used the gui for the 1000v, but the cli worked fine for me. This was a little over a year ago so my experience may not have any bearing the on the latest version of the 1000v.

Thanks rauenpc, the issue was an incorrect management ACL on the Nexus VSM. I corrected it to permit SSH traffic from the Server making the connection to the VSM Host and this resolved it.  For the record I was using the 1010 hardware appliance as welland so I added the same ACL permit on it's management ACL to be on the safe side.

With regard to Java issues, your not far wrong as I did run into a Java issue before this issue occurred.  For anyone interested I needed JRE 1.5 or laterinstalled on the Terminal Server  in order to launch the GUI/web page in the first place.

Cheers
David
