Results

You can now install your applications using the Easy Installer.

If the Easy Installer fails to launch, and you see this error message "A problem occurred during installation.Check the installer logs and retry", it is because:

  • A host rebooted during installation. Select the Host to return to a healthy state.
  • The datastore was 100% full during installation. Clear the datastore memory and retry launching the Easy Installer.
  • The Easy Installer could not connect to the ESXI host. Add target vCenter Server and all cluster associated ESXI servers DNS FQDN entries to the system host's file: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. For Linux and Mac, /etc/hosts.
