Novell Access Manager 3.2 SIngle Box Appliance
Novell Access Manager 3.2 Access Gateway appliance


Tried to install the single box Access Manager 3.2 appliance using the iso file copied to the ESXi 4.1 server file system. After the time zone setting page of the installation the system probes to initialize package manager. At this point, the install throws an error message as shown below:

<<< Unable to create repository from URL 'cd:///?devices=/dev/sr0' Details: Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s_ History: - Signature verification failed for content Try again? Yes / No >>>

The Administrator cannot proceed with the installation after this.


Upgrade to ESXi 5
