I just deployed the HCIBench ova and, even I have configured the network information (IPv4, DNS, mask, gateway), when I look at the Guest OS information in the vCenter console, I just can see two IPv6 addresses...no trace of the IPv4 address configured during deployment.

Any thoughts?

did you choose to use static when doing deployment?

Hi Chen Wei.

Yes, I choose Static but, even though that was right, you made me look at the configuration twice.

My mistake was a typo in the Net Mask. I wrote instead of

Corrected the typo, and the deployment and the connection were just right.

Thanks and best regards.

I had deployed the OVA 2.5.3, i used the port :8443 and i am unable to launch the web client. I can see the index in the web without port 8443. Could you please let me know if the port number is different to launch the web.

getting this message after validating parameters for test.

"Network traffic to HCIBench:2003 is blocked, you can still run the testing, but Grafana live monitoring will not work"

please check your network firewall, this usually means this port is blocked but needed by HCIBench for grafana, it's ok not having it, but its good to have.
