MailCleaner 2017 "Jessie" Final on ESXi6

Hello,
Is someone else (than us) using ESXi6 could confirm MailCleaner can install and works normally ?

Hmmm, using the vmdk for ESXi but any return using ESXi6 with the ova are welcome !

we are, however the vmdk we downloaded would not run. kept stating no permission to access the disk. we set chmod 777 of the vmdk inside esxi just in case and the same result happened.

when we tried using vmfstools to resize the drive it too, would not work.
we used the 'workstation' vmdk in the end which did work correctly.

if you created the vmdk with dd or some other *nix program it may explain these issues.

most appliances we import into vsphere nowadays are usually .ova's which are packaged as one file (vm metadata + vm disk)

Hmmm Oki !!!
Thanks for the report, so:
- The vmdk ESXi6 is not working for ESXi6 (or anything maybe)
- The vmdk for Workstation is working for ESXi6 ????!!! it should not as the blog post where i took command to generate the ESXi6 version was from a vmware post blog.

I think I'll redo all VMWare version only with ova (correct ova for each version).
Thank again.

Hello Florian,
(I am Yannick, one of your french Customer, with the grub that fail 2 days ago during upgrade ^^)

I tried the vmdk on esxi5.0 and 5.5 with no success.

So, i decided to do some check on this vmdk :
- Integrity of this file is OK.
- No error on scan

I tried to map the file direct with some VMware Tools : no luck.
Opening directly with 7-zip : no way ^^.

So i tried to convert the file with the vmkfstools . The job stop at 98% with an unexpected EOF .

When the vmdk was created, there are some snapshot remaining for the VM ?
Or a small flat file missing ?

At this time, i do the same with the Workstation vmdk, and it works.
Now, i start to write a procedure to create a logical raid from the existing vmdk.

Regards,
Yannick
