Trying to reinstall APIC-EM as a VM. Had it working in lab environment but after shutdown it stopped working. Hence decided to reinstall. In the fresh install getting the message as in the screenshot. The sudo password is not working.
You need to build a VM from the ISO mounted as a DVD drive. From the error it looks like the configuration_wizard has not been run.This looks a lot like an existing installation with the config file removed.
If you do a fresh install, you should see the config wizard again too.
If a controller is shutdown and needs to be restarted you can do a "reset_grapevine". It you say "n" to the questions, the state of the controller will be retained.
If you do a complete reinstall, just delete the VM from disk and create a new one, making sure you mount the ISO as a DVD drive to being the complete install process again.
By the look of it, seems like the config script didn't execute properly. If you got an error message at some point like "script execution timeout - exceeded 60 seconds" (can't recall the exact message) it might be related to time/ntp settings
- Got the next traceback error and the config_wizard has never had a chance to run.
Found the issue. The issue was that the VM disk IO is not good enough. APIC-EM requires strict IO at about 200MBs.
If our disk IO is small, likely grapevine database cannot built. Once installing on SSD environment, it will be easy work.
particularly if you have 32G RAM and <12vcpu.
SSD will make a massive difference
