VMware 6.7 VM not able to capture image using UEFI
@george1421 @Sebastian-Roth I just wanted to see about tackling this issue again. Using the SATA controller for the VM hard disk is costing us a lot of time as it takes roughly 2 hours to capture an image. Where as the SCSI controller takes less then 20 minutes.
This is in reference to an issue I posted about 10 months ago: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/11179/vmware-6-5-vm-not-able-to-capture-image-using-efi-uefi
FOG Version: 1.5.4
This is what I am seeing:
@Sebastian-Roth I have tried specifying that setting for the host in the kernel arguments and still continues to show the same message.
@quinniedid In the picture we see a note about using kernel parameter
pci=biosirq. Have you tried this yet? You can set kernel parameters for particular hosts in the host settings in the web UI.
@george1421 I tried that kernel and it is doing the same thing. We are on Build 9433931. They have an update U1 out but our hardware vendor does not support it yet.
While this might sound counter intuitive, what happens if you roll the FOS kernel back to 4.15.2? Do you get similar results? I don’t have vmware 6.7 in my environment yet so I can’t compare results easily. But is your 6.7 release been updated since the GA release? It looks like a fully patched build base # should be 10176752.
6.7 GA build base is 8169922.
