Hi There, I have HCIBench setup. I entered a root password during system deployment via the .ova. I now have a need to change the root password which is used to log into the HCI Benchmark configuration change. I can change the root password in the VM from the command line, but this doesn't seem to affect the username/password needed when logging into the webpage. Is there a way to modify the webpage credentials?

1. in HCIBench, run
echo NEW_PASSWORD | chpasswd
2. copy&paste the output to
to replace the password section.

Is there a way to upgrade the fling to the latest version or does a new appliance have to be deployed when a new version is released.

Sorry for the late reply, had to go through internal change process to open firewall to enable access to the site. Once that was completed were were able to update the appliance using the second command listed.
Thanks again for your assistance.

HCIBench VM stops pinging as we start validate the config

Dec 01, 2020

U might be pinging the ip of eth1 of hcibench?

Please be aware when running validation or testing, the eth1 ip would be changed if choosing to use internal static ip(no dhcp checked)

Hello, I used version 2.5.2 in the vsan cluster. During verification, the IP address of the management interface of eth0 is not passable and the DHCP function is selected, but the IP address of the virtual machine cannot be obtained. The following error is prompted:
IP Assignment failed or IP not reachable. Thanks!!
