Pinned topic Datapower Virtual appliance XI52- WebGUI not accessible ?

‏2013-03-29T09:30:59Z |
Hi ,
I installed ESXI v 5.0 server and vSphere client on windows 8 machine. I'm able to import Datapower ovf file and can see datapower virtual machine via vSphere client. Finally I'm able to configure Datapower via CLI but none of other interface isn't accessible like WebGUI. As per CLI web-mgmt successfully started on host 192.168.233.128 port 9090, but I can get to webConsole web page via Internet Explorer.
Any suggestion ?

    I'd guess it's a networking issue.

    From the machine with IE, can you ping 192.168.233.128? What exact URL are you trying to hit? what error do you get?

    Hi,

    I haven't tried myself with esx, u might want to try the VMware player and might want to look at this http://integr8consulting.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/datapower-virtual-environment.html#comment-form.

    Good luck

    I use VMWare Workstation, not player, but this is what I've done.

    You'll need to configure the Virtual Machine Settings' network adapter. The following are in decreasing order of security:

    Set 'Network Adapter' to 'Host-only'. This will allow your DP to be accessed only from your machine - and only able to access other services on your machine. This is the safest & simplest configuration.

    If you need the virtual DP to access other systems (outbound calls) and not accessible FROM other systems, you can set it to NAT. Your VM will then be able to access backend systems, but any clients attempting to connect to DP will need to be on your physical machine.

    If you need the virtual DP to be accessible FROM other systems, you'll need to set it to 'Bridged', but your network will need to be configured to handle it. Most can, some cannot. With this configuration, your VM looks like it's connected to the same switch as your physical machine. You'd need to reserve an address from your network folks. Any client can connect to DP, DP can connect out to anything visible on your network.

    This sets up the virtual network adapter for the VM. Now to setup DP.

    If you used 'bridged', you'll need to use the IP address/netmask/defaultGateway etc. given you by your networking team. 

    Otherwise, what I'd do is in the VMWare window/CLI, set eth0 (eth10) to DHCP, and set the WebGUI to 0.0.0.0:9090. Restart the VM, do a 'show int' to see what address it got. For the following, I'll assume '192.168.144.20'.

    Now, you can leave it using DHCP as has been suggested elsewhere, but that means you'll get a different IP every time you restart the VM. I dislike this, so I set a fixed address. Since my 'show int' had '192.168.144.20', I'll pick a number (NOT '1'!) for the last bit, in my case '192.168.144.200', a nice, easily-remembered number. In either the webGUI or the CLI, I set eth0 to 192.168.144.200/24, default gateway to '192.168.144.1', and disable DHCP. Note that the '144' number will be different from one physical machine to another, and the '200' number can be anything EXCEPT '1'. Your physical machine will have the address of '.1', which is why you use it for the default gateway.

    This is long and complicated and different for the various flavors of VMWare: Player|Workstation|ESX, as well as for different networking setups.

    Hi,

     

    I have followed these steps, but still not able to access the web gui.

    When I issue 'show web-mgmt', it shows Web-Gui (Down).

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

     

    I have followed these steps, but still not able to access the web gui.

    When I issue 'show web-mgmt', it shows Web-Gui (Down).

    Any ideas?

     

    You will need to bring up the web-gui. Login to CLI and execute following commonds:

     

    XI52# configure terminal

    XI52# web-mgmt

    XI52# admin-state enabled

    XI52# local-address 0 9090

    XI52# exit

     

    This will enable web gui and bind it to 9090 port. Type following to know the IP of the eth01 network

     

    XI52# show eth

     

    Now try to access the web-gui using https://<IP>:9090

     

    Hope this helps!

     

    cheers,

    Amit

    Thanks Amith.

     

    Actually I resolved the issue recently. I was bit mis leaded by the steps mentioned here so that my network configuration was incorrect and I was unable to bring up the Web-Gui.

    Steps followed for Resolving this:

    1. Change the network adapter of VM to 'NAT'.

    2. Reboot Datapower VM  and let the VM assign the IP. And  assign the VM's IP to the Web-Gui configuration.

    This solved my issues and Im able to access web Gui now...!!! :-)

    Thanks for the help from everyone.

     

    Regards,

    Vishnu

    I am having difficulties getting WebGUI access.  I am using VMWare player.  in VM settings I set network adapter to host-only  .  In DP config, address 0, port 9090,  I selected DHCP.  I restarted the VM and did a show int  which displayed  192.168.nnn.nnn  IP for network1 (eth0).

    Back on the host, I enter http://192.168.nnn.nnn:9090  and hit enter:  I get error:  connection was reset   -  to the server while the page was loading.
